About Me

Larry grew up in Springdale, Arkansas and graduated from Springdale High School in 1979.  He then attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville and graduated with high honors with a BS in Public Administration.  He then studied at the University Of Arkansas School Of Law and obtained his Juris Doctorate in 1986.


Larry  began his legal career working for the firm of Cypert, Crouch, Cark and Harwell in Springdale, Arkansas and thoroughly enjoyed his first four years in a general practice of law there.  However, because he and his wife have always made their home in Rogers, Arkansas, when he was offered a position with Matthews, Campbell & Rhoads in 1989, he gladly accepted. He and Ed McClure were law school friends. He became a partner with the Law Firm in 1994.


Larry’s main areas of practice are domestic relations, family law, mediation, and Social Security work. 


Larry is a certified mediator with the Arkansas Circuit Courts in civil, domestic relations and probate cases.  He became a certified mediator in 2006 and has successfully mediated hundreds of cases since then.  Whether he is involved in a case as an attorney or as a mediator, Larry attempts to use his dry sense of humor to defuse what can otherwise be a tense situation and uses his gifts of persuasion and conciliation to help people through what is one of the most difficult times of their life.


Larry is a skilled trial lawyer and will zealously represent your interests but will keep in mind that the person you are doing battle with is probably the mother or father of your children and hopefully you two will still be able to be at the same table at your kid’s wedding rehearsal dinner.

  • Joshua S. Bryant

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Larry is a fair-minded attorney who remains a tough advocate while understanding any weaknesses his case may have. He works in the details to pull out every possible fact that could alter the outcome of a case. I highly recommend this great attorney.
