Respected Names

Frank E. Shaw is the founding member of our firm and one of the most recognized and well-respected names in criminal defense across Arkansas.

The firm is known today as Shaw & Elenbaas.



Our team has more than 50 years of in-depth experience in the criminal justice system and can effectively defend your rights and freedom as we guide you through every stage of the proceedings. We've successfully handled thousands of cases, including some of the most high-profile cases in Arkansas.

Aggressive Approach

This doesn't mean we're rude or uncivil. An aggressive criminal defense attorney is effective at gathering every bit of evidence and challenging each piece on your behalf. As the prosecution tries to secure a conviction against you, we stand strong at protecting you and your rights.



We fully believe that if we have the ability to help someone, it's our duty to do so. We never judge our clients and treat everyone with respect and dignity no matter the nature of the case or circumstances of the visit. Our door is open to everyone.

Why Hire Us?

We know what we're doing and we're ready to fight. Over the past 50 years, we've become well-known and highly respected by peers and judges. In fact, other lawyers often turn to us for support. We win cases, get charges dismissed, keep clients out of jail, keep charges off of records, and reduce fines. 

We also get real with our clients and have honest conversations about their case and their future. While we're aggressive in the courtroom, we're highly approachable in the office. We want the best outcomes for our clients, and sometimes that means getting them the help they need to be a better person than when they were arrested.
