About Tara

Learn Tara’s areas of practice.

I’m Tara! I’ve worked here a few years; because of our growth needs and my dynamic skill set, I’ve worked in every position possible at Lion Legal Services! Litigation Attorney, Supervising Attorney, Ad Litem, Front Office, Back Office…you name it, I’ve done it. I’m great in any position, but my favorite is plain ‘ole attorney, practicing Ad Litem, estate planning, and domestic litigation work.

I spent most of my working years at Rivendell Behavioral Health and Pathfinder, Inc (before and after law school); my work experience with those less fortunate, combined with my social worker heart and love for details is the perfect skill set in high-emotion cases. Most cases should not go to trial simply because there is a reasonable resolution to preserve the relationships which exist long after the case is over…but when they do, I’m your girl! I’m the perfect blend of feisty, clever, and smart and an active member of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association. I know my way around a courtroom and I love my clients, working through their issues, cultivating a legal strategy and taking it all the way to the end in a trial, where my competitive streak completely overpowers my naturally empathetic disposition.

I grew up in Bauxite (no Saline County jokes, please), have family in Northwest Arkansas and settled in North Pulaski County. I have four daughters (yes, I know); two sets of twins. No one knows first hand the stress of child-rearing more than I do! My personal co-parenting and vast professional experiences working with behavioral disorders and developmental disabilities provide a unique understanding, which helps me help others find great, long-lasting, solutions to their legal issues.

The purpose and mission of Lion Legal Services, really speak to me. I helped develop them over the last few years and I love working here because we genuinely live this commitment to making reasonable legal advice affordable for Working Arkansans. Everyone deserves realistic, clear help and communication to know if there is a solution or if they should move on with their lives.

Sometimes people get me and Tori mixed up (Tara and Tori, I can see how that happens); when you get to know us better you won’t. Our personalities are opposite, but our strengths compliment each other perfectly! Tori talks about how she’s not good with emotions; thank goodness I am! We are great work and “not work” friends.

People talk about free time, but I’m not sure what that is! (see above: four daughters) Kidding, mostly. I spend my non-working time at home with my girls, garden, and fire pit; no surprise here: these are fairly expected past times for an introvert!

Divorce attorney
Tara is the best attorney from this firm she took over my case when Lauren Ruff didn't want to tell me exactly everything that was going on with my case not to mention the attitude I got from Lauren. Tara told me everything that was going on and what I needed to on my behalf she is easy to work with and even easier to get along with she made this divorce a little easier on me given it's my one and only divorce I will ever go through. Thanks Tara I appreciate all the help you gave me and the peace of mind too. I would definitely recommend you for anyone else looking to get a divorce or any other legal matter they need handled.

I was an absolute nervous wreck! Going in I felt like there wasn’t even a little hope in my case. But after only 30 minutes of explaining my situation. Tara had eased my mind, calmed my nerves and made me believe that I actually have a fighting chance at being able to STILL be the man and father that I know my boys deserve!! And for that I am grateful!!

touchy family case
I came to lion legal services with touchy family case. I figured i would try this law firm after being through several attorneys no answers no solutions no game plan or hope. my consultation was impressive they laid out a game plan and stuck with it. I can never thank Tara Mills enough for all she did. Tara is the only lawyer that handled everything she did a outstanding job! I can never thank Tara and Lion legals Services enough for all they if anything in future should ever come up i will always go back to Tara and Lion Legal services thankyou.

Tara is amazing
I am so glad I was able to have Tara working my case. I was so worried about what was going to happen and worried that a lawyer wasn't going to treat me like a person. That they would just want money and to get my case down as quick as possible to get me out the door. I truly was beyond amazed at how down to earth and nice Tara was. She did everything in her power to make sure that my case got nothing less than 150%. Tara was really great at making sure that I always understood everything that was going on with my case, she never 'talked down' to me or talked over my head. For sure the most easy going, laid back, yet hardcore lawyer I've ever known. When it came to the court date she absolutely crushed it! I would most definitely recommend Tara Mills to anyone that needs a superwoman lawyer. Tara is the first person I will call if I ever need a lawyer again. Thank you Tara!!

Highly recommend Tara.
Tara did an outstanding job while dealing with an uncooperative opposing counsels delays as well as pandemic conditions (and a very impatient client) to finally get my divorce settled. Would recommend highly.

Being in the LGBTQ community I couldn’t find a fair representation to remove me from an abusive marriage because it was against another woman! With Attorney Tara Mills there was no judgement but the judgement to finally end this awful connection I had with this narcissistic woman! She was professional yet realistically friendly! I learned from her and earned back my freedom! Thank you so very much!

Tara Mills with Lion Legal Services was the lawyer I hired for helping me regain custody of my children! With the help of the Lord, she won my case! I now I have have my children back with me.! She is very kind and really cares! She is always quick to respond to her clients! You could tell that she was genuinely happy that my children got to come back with their mom! Tara is awesome and I highly recommend hiring her if you have a similar case!

Highly skilled in estate planning.
Tara guided our estate plan and healthcare directives through some tricky moments. We appreciate her understanding of the law, and of our family's requirements. We are happy with the result. It's a relief to finally have our plan thoughtfully sorted out and documented.
