In some instances, the Arkansas Attorney General’s office may be the first contact for Arkansans seeking assistance from State or other governmental entities. The primary restriction placed upon the Attorney General’s office by Arkansas State law is that the Attorney General is prohibited from the private practice of law (Ark. Code Ann. § 25-16-701).
- Arkansans who need private legal advice should contact private legal counsel. Arkansas Legal Services, the Arkansas Bar Association and the Arkansas Access to Justice Commission are resources that help direct Arkansans to licensed, private attorneys.
- Arkansas’s 28 elected local prosecuting attorneys have authority to pursue and file criminal charges. More information on prosecutors is at arkpa.org.
- Ethical complaints about attorneys or judges may be directed to the Supreme Court Committee on Professional Conduct (for attorneys) or the Judicial Discipline and Disability Commission (for judges), by accessing courts.state.ar.us.
- Ethical complaints against other public officials should be directed to the Arkansas Ethics Commission.
- For issues concerning child support, contact the Office of Child Support Enforcement. Persons needing assistance with child custody or visitation issues should consult a private attorney.
- For Medicaid fraud issues, contact the Office of the Medicaid Inspector General.
