There are many choices for personal injury attorneys in Arkansas—but few of them promise to personally handle your case from beginning to end. At my law practice, you get the seasoned experience of twenty years as a practicing attorney, not a newly licensed lawyer or non-lawyer handling your case.
When there are concerns or questions, you’ll speak directly with me about your case, not someone else at my firm. I will fight for what is right in your case and handle only a few cases at a time to devote the time necessary to get the best outcome possible.
I am born and raised in Little Rock, AR. I have wanted to become a lawyer since high school when I took a business law course. I was pretty shy then, but intrigued by the courtroom. I took a court reporter class, quickly realizing that was not me and not my way into the courtroom. After graduating from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with a B.A. in Business Administration, I worked for a major law firm in downtown Little Rock as a secretary and paralegal. Some of the lawyers, for whom I worked, are the type that defend the cases I now handle. After some years, I went to pursue my dream of law school, never looking back as it fit me so well. After graduating from law school in 1993, I clerked for the Arkansas Court of Appeals for four years. Then I worked for a plaintiff’s personal injury firm. That was 21 years ago, and I am still doing personal injury law. I found my niche. long overcame my shyness and found that I liked talking to a jury and winning cases against insurance companies.
I enjoy helping people who have been hurt through the fault of someone not being careful or not doing their job. There is always something new to learn or improve what I do as the law is ever changing. There are significant moments for opportunities to help improve the law so others are protected. Sometimes there are opportunities for attorneys to help change the law, or enforce the laws, that improve the outcome of the cases. I like that part of being a lawyer.
I am a member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association and a member of the American Association of Justice as well as received a high rating in legal ability and ethical standards from Martindale-Hubbell.
There is a lot of choice when it comes to personal injury lawyers, from large firms to solo practitioners like me. Although all lawyers have similar law school training, how we handle cases and work with clients is different. Selecting the right personal injury attorney for your case can be difficult to navigate when you’re focused on recovering. Before selecting a personal injury attorney, asking these questions can help you make an informed decision.
