John Polewski is 60 years old, married for 35 years, and a proud father. He is active in his community, having recently served as Chairman of his local Chamber of Commerce and as president of his Rotary Club. He has served on the boards of several charitable and civic organizations.
Among Mr. Polewski's recent civic commitments is his six years of service on the executive board of Brighter Tomorrows, a non-profit organization which provides shelter, food and necessities to abused women and children, along with counseling, transitional housing and life skills training so they can reclaim their lives and dignity.
He has served the legal community as a member of boards responding to complaints about attorney conduct and determining if attorneys should be disciplined or disbarred.
John Polewski graduated near the top of his law school class and passed the Texas Bar Exam with the second highest score out of the more than 2,000 people who took it with him. Licensed to practice law in both Texas and Arkansas, Mr. Polewski has represented people and businesses in serious litigation for over 30 years.
Mr. Polewski is certified by the Board of Legal Specialization of the State Bar of Texas as a Personal Injury Trial Law Specialist. This certification, obtained only after a difficult and specialized examination, extensive trial experience and recommendation by other trial lawyers and by trial judges, is by no means a routine accomplishment: less than 3% of all Texas lawyers possess this qualification. Read more about Board Certification here. The Arkansas Bar has no similar certification process.
Due to his success in handling major personal injury cases and Wrongful Death cases, Mr. Polewski has an even rarer qualification – membership in the Million Dollar Advocates Forum.
Mr. Polewski is also a member of the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates, an invitation only, national organization of the most experienced trial lawyers in America, dedicated to the preservation of justice and the American civil justice system.

- Mr. Polewski holds the top rating of "superb" in the AVVO rating system (view Mr. Polewski's AVVO rating here).
- He is recognized year after year as one of the top lawyers in both the Little Rock and the Dallas areas by Expertise.
