RICHARD BRIGHT

Meet Richard | Personal Injury Lawyer

Richard Bright returned to his hometown of Arkadelphia and joined Taylor King Law in 2005 after beginning his career in Memphis, Tennessee. Growing up in a small town profoundly shaped Richard’s career: his practice is focused on representing ordinary citizens who have been harmed by unfair business practices. He helps clients get fair compensation including Social Security, uninsured, underinsured, and wrongful death benefits. Richard now practices law in our Little Rock office.

Soon after joining Taylor King Law, Richard won a series of orders holding that an unfair tort reform law passed 2003 was unconstitutional; this helped change Arkansas’ Rules of Evidence to protect the injured. Richard has represented clients in trials ranging from small claims court to the United States Supreme Court.

While his professional work keeps him busy, Richard is also a lifelong member of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and serves as an elder at his church. Richard loves watching the Chicago Cubs and all Razorback sports. His wife, Leslie, works for the Arkansas Court of Appeals. Together they have two daughters.
