The opportunity to serve our clients is a privilege. In short, we are thankful for all of our clients, and we appreciate the opportunity to serve.
At Thomas Smith Law Firm we take time to listen to our clients. We offer the “family” feel of a small firm combined with the skills and experience often found with larger firms.

Our goal is to learn about our clients, their families, and their businesses and provide legal solutions accordingly.
Thomas Smith, founder and owner of Thomas Smith Law Firm, is a graduate of the William H. Bowen School of Law (High Honors). He has extensive experience in corporate transactional law including real estate transactions, contract review, contract negotiation, and secured transactions. He has assisted with transactions in Arkansas and surrounding states including Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, Missouri, and Oklahoma.
A highlight of his practice is estate planning with a unique emphasis on elder clients and planning for special needs families. At Thomas Smith Law Firm we believe each estate plan should be lifetime oriented. That means each plan should primarily center around the client during his or her life and then deal with distributing assets. Our goal is to make every estate planning client a lifelong client of the firm. To that end we typically offer a free annual “checkup” with each estate plan so that amendments can be made to reflect new law, family changes, etc.
Special Needs Planning is especially important to our firm. We dedicate a significant amount of time and effort to stay abreast of the latest developments in special needs law, special needs trusts, and government benefits. Mr. Smith regularly is engaged with corporate trustees who administer special needs trusts. He works to provide the best counsel possible regarding other special needs planning dynamics such as pooled special needs trusts, ABLE accounts, etc. Mr. Smith is a member of the Arkansas Bar Association, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys, Oaklawn Rotary Club, and a member of Saint Mary’s of the Springs Catholic Church in Hot Springs. He is licensed to practice law in the State of Arkansas and the Federal District Courts in Arkansas. Mr. Smith is presently a candidate for an L.L.M. in Elder Law and Special Needs Law at Stetson University College of Law.
