About Me

 


I am the managing attorney of the Hot Springs and Hot Springs Village offices of Baim, Gunti, Mouser & Worsham, PLC. I focuse my practice on elder law and related matters including estate planning and administration, trusts, wills, guardianships, uncontested adoptions, powers of attorney, and corporate law. I am admitted to practice in Arkansas, Tennessee and Missouri. I earned my B.A. (religion) degree from Duke University and my M.A. (Near Eastern Studies) and J.D. (law) degrees from Washington University.  I completed my LL.M. (masters of law) in Elder Law and Estate Planning at Western New England University. 


 


I clerked for the Honorable Stephen N. Limbaugh, Jr. of the Missouri Supreme Court.  I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA), Wealthcounsel, and the Arkansas Bar Association (Elder Law, Tax, and Probate Sections).  My article Come Hell or High Water: a Water Regime for the Jordan River Basin was published in the Washington University Law Quarterly.


 


I am married to David Reagler and together we have two sets of twins ages 8.5 and 10.  When not working or playing with the kids, I enjoy baking, reading, and exploring Hot Springs and its wonderful offerings.  In my remaining time, I serve on the boards of the Leo N. Levi Hospital and Fifty for the Future. I am the auction chair for the local American Heart Association Heart Ball.
