Lawyer Profile


I began my study of law in 1986 at Thomas M. Cooley Law School located in Lansing, Michigan where I achieved recognition by inclusion on the Dean's List and Honor Roll.  That year I also received the book award for Legal Research and Writing and was awarded the American Jurisprudence Award for excellent achievement in the study of Research and Writing.  In Fall 1987 I transferred my enrollment to San Antonio, Texas so I would be closer to home.  Upon completion of my legal studies at St. Mary's University School of Law located in San Antonio, Texas I earned my Juris Doctor degree in law,  Spring 1989.  I became licensed by the Texas Supreme Court to practice law in Texas in Fall 1989.  In 1998 I studied for the Arkansas bar examination and received admission to practice law in the state of Arkansas.

Over the years I have been involved in several organizations:

Garland County Historical Society
Civitan Club
South Plains Lions Club
Arkansas Bankers Association, Trust Committee, 1996-1998
Washington County Bar
Benton County Bar
Ark. Bar Association, Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee, and Paralegal Committee
Texas Bar Association
Licensed by Texas Board of Education, Secondary Education
Licensed by Texas Real Estate Commission
Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association

A major portion of my career has been invested in Trust & Estate administration.  I have worked for two banks and rose through the ranks from an entry level Assistant Trust Officer to Vice President in charge of managing a trust department.   My personal interests surround rural America, farming, history and genealogy.

In 1996 I returned to my family roots in Arkansas.  Although I was raised in Texas my family dates back to 1850 in Hot Spring County, Arkansas when my Warford and Rigsby ancestors began to arrive in the county.
