Since I live in the City of Bentonville, can I receive legal advice regarding personal matters?

No. The Staff Attorney's office advises the City, which has the status of a municipal corporation. The Staff Attorney and Legal Department personnel are ethically prohibited from providing legal advice to individuals regarding private legal matters. These matters must be handled by attorneys retained by the individuals. You may search for attorneys who are members of the Arkansas Bar Association.
