2019 Top Attorneys: Ethan P. Arbuckle
Successions • Family Law • Criminal Defense
Ethan P. Arbuckle became a lawyer so he could help people.
“I always shoot straight with clients,” said Arbuckle, a North DeSoto High School graduate who went on to LSUS and then Southern University Law Center. “I keep them updated on their case and fight for them relentlessly.”
Helping people runs in the family. His father, Rodney Arbuckle, was DeSoto Parish Sheriff for more than 17 years.
Arbuckle makes sure he’s always available when needed.
“My firm gives clients the feeling of availability,” said Arbuckle, who is at the helm of a general practice firm that focuses on probate/succession law, family law and criminal defense. “I know how frustrating it is when that aspect is missing from a business.”
At this point in his career, he can’t imagine doing anything else.
“I never know what type of phone call I’m going to receive or who is going to walk through the door,” Arbuckle said. “Each day is a surprise.”
He credits his can-do attitude for his early success.
“I’m a people person,” Arbuckle said. “I’ve never met someone I couldn’t talk to. This helps me in my daily negotiations with other attorneys and prosecutors to ensure the best outcomes for my clients.”
He plans to grow his firm and continue to do what’s best for anybody who seeks his assistance.
“I don’t take my clients for granted,” Arbuckle said. “I treat them right – and it’s only a matter of time before that word gets around.”
