I grew up in Springdale, Arkansas and graduated from Springdale High School in 1979. I attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and graduated with high honors with a BS in Public Administration. I then studied at the University Of Arkansas School Of Law and obtained my Juris Doctorate in 1986.

I began my legal career working for the firm of Cypert, Crouch, Clark and Harwell in Springdale, Arkansas and thoroughly enjoyed my first four years in a general practice of law there. However, because my wife and I have always made our home in Rogers, Arkansas, when I was offered a position with Matthews, Campbell & Rhoads in 1989, I gladly accepted. Ed McClure and I were law school friends. I became a partner with the Law Firm in 1994.

My main areas of practice are domestic relations, family law, mediation, and Social Security work.
I am a certified mediator with the Arkansas Circuit Courts in civil, domestic relations and probate cases. I became a certified mediator in 2006 and have successfully mediated hundreds of cases since then. Whether I am involved in a case as an attorney or as a mediator, I attempt to use my dry sense of humor to defuse what can otherwise be a tense situation and uses my gifts of persuasion and conciliation to help people through what is one of the most difficult times of life.

I strive to be a skilled trial lawyer. I will zealously represent your interests but will keep in mind that the person you are doing battle with is probably the mother or father of your children and hopefully you two will still be able to be at the same table at your kid's wedding rehearsal dinner.
