Charlie Cunningham

The Practice

Born, raised, and educated entirely in the Natural State, Charlie’s motivation and drive for Arkansan families is evident in his practice, which he has dedicated to helping individuals and the ones they love most in issues involving family including divorce, child custody and modification, DHS, guardianship, prenuptial agreements, and everything in between. Charlie is known as a zealous advocate for his clients in front of any judge. However, knowing how sensitive family matters can be, he works diligently to assess the needs of individual clients and develop a strategy that achieves their desired outcomes.

The Personal

Charlie returned to his hometown of Little Rock after graduating from law school in Fayetteville in 2014. He lives there with his wife, their dog, Harriet, and cat, Madonna. He is avid Arkansas Razorback and St. Louis Blues fan (he played hockey as a kid for the Little Rock Lightning. Outside of spending time with his family and friends, Charlie loves playing disc golf and experimenting in the kitchen. He previously served as the second ever Commissioner of Bottle Toss, a local, legendary, Little Rock game.

The Professional

Charlie first knew that a career in the courtroom was in the works after winning back-to-back Arkansas state debate championships representing Little Rock Central High School. He then attended the University of Arkansas for his undergraduate education as a double-major in History and German. In law school, also at the University of Arkansas, he won the Ben J. Altheimer Moot Court Competition and received overall best speaker.

After law school, Charlie clerked for the Honorable Waymond Brown at the Arkansas Court of Appeals, then spent several years arguing dependency neglect cases for DHS child protective services. Since he has entered private practice, he has argued in courts across Arkansas in a variety of practice areas including complex appeals, civil litigation, any and all family law issues, guardianship, and cases involving his previous employer - the Department of Human Services.

    My husband and I were both represented by dustin duke. He was extremely understanding and helped us with our issue within days! We had less than a week to prepare for court and Dustin won the case and was able to get my attorneys fees paid for from the other party! Would HIGHLY recommend arlaw partners they genuinely care about their clients and are always available for any questions you may have!

    I am so grateful to have found AR law partners. Kayla Marple and Betsy Hickman helped me above and beyond with my divorce. I had a particularly difficult judge, but a fairly straightforward case. They took all of the stress off of me and got it done for a very fair price. I 100% recommend them!
