have worked extensively in litigation based areas of the legal field.
During law school I gained valuable experience from the lawyers I was
fortunate enough to clerk for. My first clerking experience was with
James & House, P.A. in Little Rock, Arkansas. While at James &
House, I worked cases dealing with construction law, zoning law, and
white collar crimes. After James & House I became a Rule 15 Clerk
with the Pulaski County Public Defender's Office. As a Rule 15 clerk I
was allowed to represent individuals in Arkansas courts as long as I had
another member of the Public Defender's Office with me. It was during
this time that I gained valuable courtroom experience. Finally, I
clerked for J. Sky Tapp at Tapp Law Offices in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I
was fortunate enough to work on many matters ranging from researching
and writing appellate briefs, drafting correspondence to courts, and drafting numerous pleadings.
passing the bar I became an associate at Tapp Law Offices in Hot
Springs where I furthered my knowledge of litigation based practice with
the help of Mr. Tapp. After leaving Tapp Law Offices I started the Ethridge Law Firm and shared an office here in Hot Springs with Luke Graham. During that time I spent one (1) year as a part time
deputy public defender in the 16th Judicial District in nothern
Arkansas. Mr. Graham decided to move closer to family in Malvern, Arkansas and I remained in Hot Springs.
am married to my beautiful wife Bethany and we have an adorable
daughther named Sophie. When I have free time I enjoy hunting, fishing,
and playing golf. I also can be found watching the Arkansas Razorbacks
whenever and wherever they may be playing. I appreciate you taking the
time to view this website and I hope that you will allow me to help you
with your legal issue. I understand that when life causes you to need
an attorney it usually is not a happy time, but I want you to know that I
will strive to make certain that you have the best experience possible
because you allowed me to represent you in your time of need.
