Robert Wells

About

I attended the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. During my time there, I served as the 2007 President of Kappa Sigma Fraternity and along with numerous other organizations. I was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society upon graduation. I was then accepted into the University of Arkansas School of Law in Fayetteville. I received my Law Degree in 2011 and graduated Cum laude.

During my final year of Law School, I served as the President of the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association, Student Chapter, in 2010-11, as well as the Managing Editor of the Journal of Food Law & Policy.

My current professional memberships include the Arkansas Trial Lawyers Association, the Craighead County Bar Association, the Arkansas Bar Association, and the American Association for Justice. I was recently selected to the National Trial Lawyers Top 40 under 40 list.

In addition to formal memberships, I value the importance of community involvement. I am on the Board of Commissioners for the Jonesboro Urban Renewal & Housing Authority, as well as the Board of St. Bernard's Advocates. I also served as the Coach of the Arkansas State University Moot Court Team from 2014 through 2016.

The main reason I became an attorney was to help people. I understand that an injury due to another person or company's negligence can create significant stress in a person's life. I want to advise injured victims of their rights and aid them in making sure that their lives are not completely turned upside down. The most gratifying part of my job is helping someone in need and knowing that I give all of my effort to help them with their case.

Practicing personal injury law can be emotional, especially knowing the results of a catastrophic injury and how it has hurt a family. However, when people are shown compassion for what they have been through, and they know someone is on their side to help, it gives them comfort and hope to continue fighting.

I volunteer my time with St. Bernard’s Advocates, a fundraising arm of the St. Bernard’s Hospital Foundation. In 2015, I served as Co-Chair for the Triple Swing Event, the largest fundraising event of the year for the St. Bernard’s Advocates. The event raised over $180,000 – 100% of which will be donated to help fund the new St. Bernard’s Memory Care Center. The Memory Care Center is a residential complex for seniors that suffer from Alzheimer’s.

In 2016, I will serve as the Chair of the Triple Swing event that will take place in June of 2016.

I am married to Hilary Hubbard Wells. We attend First United Methodist Church in Jonesboro and have one daughter, Reagan Wells.
