John lives in the Hillcrest neighborhood and loves to call Little Rock home. He enjoys being part of the city and legal community.

When not walking his canine friends, John can often be found tending to his plants.  John brings the same devotion and attention to his gardening that he brings to his pets.  He is well-known to have a green thumb, and has a variety of plants at home and in the office that he scrupulously shapes.  John takes pride in keeping his plants thriving in all types of Arkansas weather.

At work, John’s practice primarily focuses on divorce, custody, adoption, paternity, and guardianship cases.   John brings the same devotion and care that he demonstrates at home to each of his client’s cases.

Little Rock Family Law Lawyer

Facing a situation that can change your family is stressful. But with the right guidance and open communication, we can help take the stress out of it.

Family law issues happen to everyone all of the time. It rapidly changes many things in your life and is not the easiest to deal with. We can help with that.

There are two main issues in most family law cases:



Child Custody in Arkansas: The world of child custody is pretty simple in Arkansas: The judge will make the decision about child custody based upon the best interest of the child(ren). A judge might have to make a decision about custody in a divorce, paternity, or, in some sense, guardianship matter.



Child Support in Arkansas: All the Courts in Arkansas use Administrative Order No. 10 to determine child support.

The chart gives an amount based on certain criteria to order support. This is the support unless you can argue reason to deviate from the chart, which is allowable under Administrative Order No. 10.

Also, in some cases, a judge may order back child support.

Hiring a lawyer might sound scary, but you can rest knowing that you are covered.
