Gary DeWitt

Gary DeWitt - Attorney at Law

I know first hand how hard it is to lose somebody and the headaches that follow.

My father passed away of a sudden heart attack in 2010. Because of this, mom and I had to take the family ranch through probate – for the third time since 1975.  This was an extremely long and stressful process and it is the last thing that anyone wants to go through while they are mourning.

I decided then and there a better way must exist. And it does. That better way is an effective estate plan.

What motivates me everyday is helping you meet your goals. Only once I have a complete idea of what is going on will I make a recommendation that meets your goals.

Over the years, we have engaged attorneys to help navigate the legal process for various reasons. In the last three years, we have had to engage estate attorneys in two different states to assist with probate matters. Not being from Arkansas, we didn't know of any attorneys and were given a referral to Gary DeWitt. Wow! What a different experience for us. Gary is punctual, friendly, responsive, family-oriented, kind-hearted, and very knowledgeable. We are forever grateful for the referral to his law firm. From our view, when we have a legal question, we want answers as soon as possible, but most attorneys get to you when they can. Gary, however, makes you feel as if you are the only client he has - although we know this not to be the case. He truly does respond quickly to questions and goes - in my mind - above and beyond. It was over the holidays when I needed a letter to move things along with an insurance company. Gary was out of the office, but still replied and was able to assist us with the letter. No, I didn't really expect him to meet my timeline, but we were certainly grateful he went above expectations to get this letter to us! If you have any doubts about engaging Gary's firm, please don't. You will be happy working with him! Go meet with him. You will see for yourself he was made from a unique mold. I have not experienced an attorney like him in all my years! This is not a paid review. Just a review to motivate others like me to pick a good attorney!

Wonderful to have all the things in place to take care of each other and our kids if anything were to happen. We learned so much through this process and now feel prepared and educated. This has been the best team to work with through this process. Adulting isn’t always fun, but being prepared does help take some of the anxiety and strain away.

Gary and his staff have been wonderful to work with. Having never had to deal with estate issues or being an executor before, Gary walked me through each step of the process. He and his staff patiently answered all of my numerous questions and reassured me that I was doing everything correctly. Highly recommend Gary and his staff. I wish they practiced law in the state that I reside in.

Winnie DeWitt

I am a native of Arkansas, having been in and around Northwest Arkansas most of my life.  I have lived in Springdale for the past 16 years working, playing and raising our 2 children, Madeline and Aaron.

I have had several careers like most people.  After working in large companies I decided I was ready for a change.

Career Change

My sister was working at UAMS in Little Rock as a physical therapist and took me to work with her.  I fell in love with physical therapy and went back to school to become a physical therapist assistant.  The next 16 years I worked with children with special needs in the public schools and pre-schools.

Physical Therapy

I absolutely loved working with the children, families, physical therapist and other health care  professionals.  The children were such a delight!  It was so rewarding to help a child to grow and thrive, walk and play, crawl and climb.  Even though some of the diagnosis were frightening and debilitating it gave me great joy to help those children experience normal activities like swinging or playing in a ball pit.

Gary’s Change of Profession

After Gary’s father passed away in 2010 he told me he wanted to go back to school to become an attorney.  He didn’t want anyone to go through the tedious and long process that our family had to go through with his father’s probate.  I knew that he had found a career he could be passionate about and I was behind him 100%.

He has an incredible mind and I knew he could accomplish anything he set his mind to.  I have always enjoyed helping people and I wanted to have my own business, since I grew up helping both my mom and my brother operate their own successful businesses.

Children

My two children, Aaron and Madeline, are what drive me on a daily basis to work hard.  I want to be the example for them on having a successful balance of work and family time. But also, serving our community with caring and dedication.

My Goal

My goal is to assist every person who comes through our doors.  I will do my best to help people get the best service in a caring environment in a timely manner.  I am dedicated to returning phones calls with answers!  Our office is here to serve and we love having our clients feel welcome to drop by when they need us.

Our goal is to be the person you turn to when making those big decisions in life.  We want to be a friend of the family for generations to come.  Each family has a different set of needs and goals.  Our plans are customized for each family and we do that taking our clients through the planning process, explaining the options and making a plan that will fit our clients’ needs and goals.
Day in and day out I assist Gary on helping our clients in proper planning at every stage of their lives.

Different People, Different Plans

There is a different plan for single individuals, young married couples, to people in their 40’s, 50’s and on.  We listen to our clients to make sure that their goals are met. We strive to prevent the “horror” stories we hear from people every week.  Having to move your loved one into a nursing home is hard enough without finding out they will not qualify for Medicaid.

Conclusion — Local Folk

We love working and playing in Downtown Springdale and being part of the revival of the downtown area.

I hope that I can serve you and make planning a creative experience to share with generations to come!

Serving Bella Vista, Bentonville, Rogers, Springdale, Fayetteville and all of Northwest Arkansas
