Meet Your Personal Injury Attorney
Personally Handled Client Cases

About Phyllis B. Eddins

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.

Seasoned Personal Injury Attorney

Personal Dedication

I handle a fewer number of cases at a time to make sure each of my clients gets the thorough attention they need. I personally handle the case from beginning to end, including taking your case to trial if that will produce the best outcome for your case.


I hope you never need my services but if you do, it’s turned your life upside down. I promise I will listen and learn how your life has been affected and handle your case with empathy and understanding. I care deeply about what has been taken from you and do my best to advocate for your needs.


Many lawyers tell you what they think you want to hear but I focus on being honest and open with my clients. Trust between client and attorney is often the foundation of a successful claim and trust can’t be built without honesty. I work with a high ethical standard with my clients to give honest opinions on their claim.

20 Years Experience

For the last twenty years, I have handled thousands of cases and bring all of my experience to your case. I do not give up easily when I see someone who was harmed and passionately persevere for the best outcome for my clients. As part of my work, I am always listening, learning, and working towards being the best lawyer I can for my clients.

My Story

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.

Selecting the right attorney for you

How to Find the Right Personal Injury Attorney

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.

  • Will your case be personally handled by an attorney, or will most or all of it, be handled by non-licensed staff or claims manager?
  • How long has the attorney handled personal injury cases?
  • How often does the attorney go to trial on a personal injury case?
  • How many cases has the attorney handled that is similar to yours?
  • How much time will the attorney devote to discussing your case with you?
  • Will the attorney return your phone calls?
