About Caroline

Learn Caroline’s areas of practice.

I am originally from Gurdon, Arkansas. The first person in my family to attend a four-year college, I obtained my Bachelor of Arts degree in Russian and Political Science from Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. As an undergraduate, I spent a semester abroad in Almaty, Kazakhstan, studying the Russian language and culture.  I earned my Master of Arts degree in Slavic Languages and Literatures from the University of Kansas in 1998. After taking a year-long hiatus, I enrolled in law school at the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville, Arkansas, and obtained my law degree in 2002.

 

While in law school, I served as the Research Editor of the Arkansas Law Review. I was also an active member of the moot court program and was recognized for writing and oral advocacy achievement in this program.  I served on the Board of Advocates as the Ben J. Altheimer Moot Court Competition Chair.  In 2002, I was awarded the 2002 Outstanding Service to the Law School Award and received the 2002 Appellate Advocacy Prize.

 

While in law school, I received the Vincent W. Foster, Jr., Scholarship two years in a row. During my first interview with the scholarship selection committee, I met the Honorable William R. Wilson, Jr., of the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Arkansas, who served on the committee. Through this encounter, I was given the opportunity to serve Judge Wilson as one of his law clerks from 2002 to 2004.  Following my clerkship, I have worked in the areas of insurance defense, including subrogation, workers' compensation defense, complex commercial and antitrust litigation, estate planning and probate law, and the development of business entities in Arkansas.  I have submitted appeals to the Full Commission of the Arkansas Workers' Compensation Commission, the Arkansas Court of Appeal, the Arkansas Supreme Court, and the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.

 

My goal at all times is to serve the Brad Hendricks Law Firm and its clients in any requested capacity with the ultimate goal of helping to obtain a favorable result for each client.  My primary practice areas include bankruptcy, family, estate planning, and personal injury law.  I am the Managing Bankruptcy Attorney.

 

I currently live in Little Rock, Arkansas, with my husband Stephen and our adorable daughter Catherine, and several fur friends.

Caroline Lewis: Incredible Lawyer
Caroline is one of the best attorneys I have had the pleasure of meeting. She made a fantastic visitation schedule for my ex-wife that had my stepson's best interest at heart. She cared deeply about our case and I can tell she cares greatly about all of her cases. She is extremely intelligent and if she doesn't know the answer, she will find it through research and hard work. I am about to use Caroline again for another case I have and will continue to do so for all of my legal needs in the future. Thank you Caroline, you are incredible!

This is the BEST Attorney in ARKANSAS - She was incredible and not afraid of any challenge
Caroline Curry Lewis is a tenacious, driven, smart, and accomplished lawyer. She is the ONLY attorney I will use for any case and if needed she can consult with other specialists, but she will manage the case. Her staff keep in constant contact and she makes personal calls to you herself. She is organized and briefs you well before court. She is quick to answer a question and quick to admit when she needs to do further research. She called us on the day of an important US Supreme Court decision to alert us of the decision and to congratulate us on the outcome. I cannot imagine anyone who could not be well served by her. She is open and caring and respects the equality and dignity of all persons. We immediately felt comfortable discussing very personal family matters with her, which were processed by her with our dignity as her first priority. She filed a historic case for us in an area of law that is still being sorted out. I cannot express enough our gratitude to her and her para-legal Sean Patterson. They both are amazing people. If you are looking for an attorney that will place you first and ensure that you are given factual information and present all options in an easily understood matter, then she is the one for you. Her fees are reasonable and she worked to actually find us the best options in case filings and shared the pros and cons of all matters. in court she presented herself in an above average manner and had excellent relationships with the court and court staff. There was a special request regarding the hearing of the case and she was able to work this out as requested. She met with us as needed and did not try to find every billable minute she could find, rather she set a market reasonable rate and we were pleased with that. We were very apprehensive about presenting our case to a stranger that we did not know, considering that we are a same-sex couple, however, as stated above the dignity and grace with which she addressed us made us feel welcomed and appreciated. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
