I graduated from Rogers High School with David R. Matthews. During our high school years we decided we would practice law together and that has become a reality. I attended the University of Arkansas on an Army ROTC scholarship and upon graduation served four years in the U. S. Army Signal Corps. Upon completion of my service I then attended and graduated from the University of Arkansas Law School in 1979 and immediately entered into private practice with David Matthews. From 1982 to 1984 I served as the Benton County Juvenile Referee. By chance, good fortune, and hard work, my practice has revolved around the area of banking law, creditor bankruptcy, some business law and estate planning.
I have been very active over the years with church and charitable organizations. I have served on the Board of the Benton County Sunshine School, the Rogers Public Education Foundation, and the Adult Development Center (now known as Open Avenues) Campaign Leadership Cabinet. I am also currently on the Board of the Rogers Activity Center and have coached Rogers Bambino baseball. I have been constantly active in serving at the First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) here in Rogers, currently sing in the choir and serve as a Trustee.
