About Stewart A. Whaley
Stewart lives in central Arkansas with his wife, Heather, and their children. Stewart spends his free time with his family, and he tries to watch as many Razorback games as possible. When he can find the time, he enjoys UFC fights and any standup comedy he can find. In true Arkansan fashion, he doesn’t pass up opportunities to hunt.
Before committing to the practice of the law full-time, Stewart worked to understand complex software systems, their unique digital language, and the relationships that made them tick. His work as a software developer, Chief Privacy & Security Officer, and in-house counsel helped him transition seamlessly from digital systems to the legal system.
Stewart has chosen to devote his entire practice to protecting people’s rights. Specializing in criminal defense Stewart spends his professional time providing an excellent legal defense by fighting wrongful prosecutions, aggressive sentencing, and poor incarceration models. He spends his personal time advocating for prisoners’ rights.
Stewart’s goal for every workday is to make the government follow the law and to protect the constitution. Unfortunately, the government doesn’t always follow the law if given the choice.
After graduating with Honors from the William H. Bowen School of Law in Little Rock, Stewart trained with the National Institute for Trial Advocacy. This is where he discovered his passion for fearless advocacy in criminal justice cases and prisoners’ rights, especially as they transition and return as citizens from incarceration to re-entry into society.
Besides being an integral member of the Arkansas Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the National Association of Criminal Association of Defense Lawyers, and the Pulaski County Bar Association, Stewart is also part of the Central Arkansas Re-Entry (CARE) Coalition.
