Josh grew up in Piggott, Arkansas where he learned the value of hard work and a lot about construction. Both of Josh’s grandfathers were contractors and Josh’s father still owns a small flooring store to this day.

Brandon Haubert is a top-rated bankruptcy attorney here in North Little Rock (rated one of the Top 40 Under 40 by The National Advocates); he and the team at wh Law can do it all.
Wh Law concentrates in several practice areas, ranging from bankruptcy to family law. Whether you are looking for a bankruptcy lawyer or need guidance in other practice areas, you can expect a passionate team of lawyers, like Brandon Haubert, who is prepared to help you.
Cofounder Brandon Haubert has been working in the central Arkansas community for years. With a history in business, Brandon applies his knowledge of professional and personal relationships to his clients and serve them the best way possible.
Brandon grew up in Clarksville, Arkansas. There, he learned the most fundamental parts of lawyering: how to work hard, work smart, and work out problems with other people. Although he picked up the rest in law school and the first years of his practice, he firmly believes that what makes him an excellent advocate is what he learned growing up.
Before enrolling in law school, Brandon attended Arkansas Technical College, where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in business. Taking critical points from the business perspective he’d learned, Brandon applies many of the same to his practice today, where he emphasizes efficiency, excels in customer service, and practices effective communication. He believes he serves his clients best when the firm is running like a well-oiled machine—much like a business.
After graduating from Arkansas Technical College, Brandon went on to law school. There, he received Honors upon graduating with his Master’s in Business Administration. During his years there, Brandon built an excellent reputation with the members of the legal community when he clerked for the Arkansas Attorney General, Federal Public Defender, and various other firms in Little Rock. Going forward, Brandon successfully built his reputation around these essential relationships and reputation he has for honesty, sincerity, and care.
Three days after passing the Bar exam, Brandon co-founded whLaw. It was a process to get the firm off the ground, but looking back, Brandon wouldn’t do anything differently.
Today, he handles estate planning and probate, as well as litigation issues that accompany these fields. He also works on criminal defense and bankruptcy. He feels unique in his ability to wear both of these hats since most lawyers either want to draft the trust or fight the trust—but Brandon can do both.
With a lifetime full of experience excelling in building relationships and helping those around him, Brandon is excited about the future of wh Law. As the firm continues to grow, he hopes to serve more people better than ever before.
Wh Law is unlike any other team you’ll work with. With an experienced organization and compassionate staff, Brandon and the attorneys at wh Law excel in multiple practice areas, including:
Brandon often gets asked how you know you need a lawyer. The answer is simple: if you are facing any legal obstacle, you should always consult with a lawyer—because when you work with an experienced professional, you can count on someone having your back.
Most of all, a dedicated lawyer will help you avoid mistakes, errors, prevent delays, and recognize approaches and methods you might not have seen otherwise. No matter what your legal situation is, you’ll always want someone in your corner fighting for your case.
With years of experience working alongside the central Arkansas community, Brandon is prepared to evaluate your case and make a plan to help you achieve the best outcome.
Filing for bankruptcy might sound frightening, but with the right guidance, you’ll be surprised at how simple the process can be.
Bankruptcy happens when you owe more than what you can pay. This situation usually occurs after experiencing severe debt from life-changing events like illness, divorce, job loss, foreclosure, and other stressful situations.
There are two main times of bankruptcy you can declare, which are:
Chapter 7 bankruptcy in Arkansas is a process where you will attempt to be forgiven for your debts by selling your assets so you can start with a clean slate. This helps wipe out debts from credit cards, medical bills, and personal loans without a repayment plan.
Chapter 13 bankruptcy in Arkansas is often ordered by creditors and the court, which is the best route if you want to keep your property. This type of bankruptcy allows you to keep all of your assets but puts you on a three- to five-year repayment plan to creditors. You must have a consistent source of income to qualify for Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell the difference between being in debt and when you have to file for bankruptcy. If you’re unsure, then ask yourself these questions:
If so, then it’s time to consult with one of central Arkansas’ best bankruptcy attorneys. With wh Law’s free bankruptcy consultation, Brandon will be able to decipher your situation, explain the process, and assist you through it to achieve a debt-free life.

With dozens of glowing testimonials and a 10.0 Justia Lawyer Rating, Degen Clow is one of the top-rated criminal defense attorneys in North Little Rock. With expertise in all things criminal defense, Degen is prepared to use his firsthand experience from being a prosecuting attorney to work through your case so that you can get the best possible outcome.
Before Degen Clow became a criminal defense attorney, he was a respiratory therapist. Yet, something drew him to study law — and ever since then, he’s been practicing criminal defense.
Degen Clow joined whLaw in 2015 after serving as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney for several years in Pulaski County. During that time, he spent every day in court, nicknaming it his “office away from the office.” There, he was able to develop the right confidence, charisma, and most importantly, he learned what it takes to beat a criminal charge.
Degen attended the University of Arkansas, where he was a member of the Razorback football team before going onto the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences with a degree in Cardio-Pulmonary Care. He worked as a respiratory therapist before attending law school. Now, Degen is licensed to practice law in all Arkansas state courts and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern and Western Districts of Arkansas. He and his wife Lauren live in Benton with their four children, Davis, Arden, McCall and Greer.
If you’ve been arrested with a criminal charge, contact Degen Clow at wh Law as soon as possible. Practicing exclusively in criminal defense, Degen can help you no matter the type of charge:
Whether you were pulled over under the influence or were the victim of a motor vehicle accident under the influence, the first thing you should do is call whLaw immediately. Since these trials can get very complicated, Degen will be there to analyze your case and save your reputation and record.
If you were arrested for possessing controlled substances such as methamphetamine, cocaine, marijuana, oxycontin, steroids, ecstasy, LSD, or other types of narcotics, your case might result in state and federal charges. Degen can help protect your rights and minimize your sentence as much as possible.
If you are suspected of drug trafficking, your local police department will have call in the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to investigate your case. There is also a chance that you may be charged with federal indictments.
If an unregistered weapon was involved in a crime you committed, then be sure to contact Degen as soon as possible so he can help clear any accusations before charges are made.
If you are involved in forgeries or RICO violations (such as gambling, kidnapping, bribery, and arson), then contact whLaw immediately so that Degen can defend your rights.
Even the smallest theft can quickly advance into a severe case. In robbery or burglary cases, you may be charged with a prison sentence, especially if a weapon is involved. Wh Law and Degen can help present and argue in favor of your case.
Whether it’s manslaughter or murder, homicide is a very complicated case to navigate. Wh Law and Degen will utilize the appropriate tools and present arguments that will preserve your rights and represent in the best light possible.
Crimes that you commit as a juvenile can stay on your record for years to come. This has long-term effects and might prevent you from getting a job as an adult. Degen can help defend your case and work towards erasing it from your file.
If you’ve been charged with a sex crime, then you need an attorney to fight for you to avoid registering as a sex offender. Being a registered sex offender limits where you can live and takes away a tremendous amount of freedom, as it significantly affects your reputation in your community.
Degen and the team at wh Law are experienced in appeal processes, both first-time and repeals.
Firstly, never admit fault or imply that you are guilty of doing anything. The fact is that what you say can make or break your case. After you have been processed, ask for Degen Clow from whLaw, who will come to you and gather information so that he could lessen your chance of conviction.
When you are in the police’s custody, remain calm and silent. Be sure that you only talk to your lawyer about what happened. The police officers may try to interview you and get your side of the story, but be sure that you don’t consent to this unless your lawyer is present. Degen will help advise you on what to say and when to say it so that nothing accidentally jeopardizes your case.
Depending on the type of crime, there will likely be an investigation where the police will interview you and collect data and evidence. You may have the opportunity to ask for a judge or jury trial. In cases like this, it’s always best to have a lawyer who’s undoubtedly in your corner to help you get the best results possible.
Degen and his team will conduct their own investigation in which they will gather facts, evidence, and scientific arguments against the prosecution. By doing separate research, Degen can guarantee a better result for your case.
During the trial and investigation process, there will be many important decisions you have to make. Your attorney will stand beside you to help you, including deciding whether you want a judge or jury trial and if you want to look into negotiating a plea agreement. He will offer you personalized counsel and only suggest a decision based on what is most suitable.
The professionals at wh Law care about your rights and will work tirelessly to make sure you are represented adequately and aggressively. If you’ve been charged with a DUI, misdemeanor, or a felony, contact Degen Clow at wh Law immediately so that he can begin working on the best possible outcome for your case.
