I had strong family ties to the legal profession my whole life and was inspired to become an attorney at a young age. I wanted my life's work to make a positive impact on the lives of others and knew that pursuing my law degree would allow me the opportunity to do just that. Upon graduating from Vanderbilt University with my J.D., I returned to Arkansas to take over the law firm established by my family in El Dorado in 1946. Since becoming the principal attorney, I've dedicated my practice to providing every client with the seasoned counsel and support they need to move forward. With decades of experience in criminal defense and family law, I'm prepared to guide you through your case so you can move forward with your life.MORE ABOUT ME
