Lawyer.com Member Questionnaire

Please describe a case(s) in the last year or two where you made a big difference.
I have had a couple of significant appellate decisions in the last few years. In Falcon Steel, Inc. v. J. Russell Flowers, Inc., 635 F.3d 369 (8th Cir. 2011), the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's conclusion that a supplier of steel had a construction lien against the entire project of 4 partially constructed barges. This opinion is significant because it will make it easier for sub-contractors and material suppliers to enforce constructions liens against incomplete projects. In Whitbeck v. Bradford, 2012 Ark. 439, the Arkansas Supreme Court affirmed the trial court's decision that the doctrine of res judicata applies to settlements and that a confirmation of sale is a final and appealable order. This decision is significant because it confirms old case law concerning settlements and their preclusive effect.

How important is local knowledge to the success of your cases?
Local knowledge is important to the success of your case. A lawyer who knows the judge and the jury pool will have significant insight about personalities and personal inclinations. This knowledge will allow the lawyer to create better strategies for your case.

Are you involved in your community?
I am involved in the community. I am the past Lt. Governor of Division 21 of the Kiwanis International Mo-Ark District. I am the past president of the Downtown Little Rock Kiwanis Club, which supports Camp Pfiefier, a charitable institution dedicated to improving the lives of Arkansas' at-risk 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders in Central Arkansas. I also serve on the Board of Youth Home, Inc., which is a charitable institution dedicated to helping Arkansas' most emotionally troubled adolescents and families become healthier contributing members of the community. Further, I am on the Advisory Board of Partners Against Trafficking Humans (PATH), a non-profit organization dedicated to stopping the trafficking of mainly young women for sex.
