M. Darren O’Quinn, a native of Arkadelphia, Arkansas, was born on July 18, 1958. He began his legal career in 1985 working as a law clerk at one of Arkansas’s most prestigious and largest law firms, then known as House, Holmes & Jewell (which eventually became Dover & Dixon). After receiving his Juris Doctor, with honors, from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock School of Law in 1987, he joined the firm’s Litigation Section as an associate where his practice emphasized the defense of insurers, doctors, hospitals, nurses, pharmacists, nursing homes, and personal injury, eventually being named a partner of the firm.
Mr. O’Quinn left his partnership at Dover & Dixon in 2002 and became a founding member of The Law Offices of Darren O’Quinn, where he began to prosecute the types of cases he formerly defended. Through his over 30 years of experience in both defending and prosecuting cases, Mr. O’Quinn has gained valuable insight into successfully screening and aggressively preparing cases for trial so that, ultimately, a careless wrongdoer will accept responsibility for the harms and losses caused to an innocent victim.
Mr. O’Quinn holds a degree in Pharmacy from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and was awarded a Doctor of Pharmacy in 1984 and licensed as a pharmacist. Mr. O’Quinn also holds a degree from Henderson State University, where he majored in chemistry, biology, and mathematics. He is an assistant professor of Pharmacy Law at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences College of Pharmacy and also lectures on pharmacy law at Harding University College of Pharmacy.
