About Us

Get to Know Our Firm

In 2006, attorneys Don Elliott and Tim Smith founded the Elliott & Smith Law Firm in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Prior to that, they were partners at the law firm of Odom & Elliott, where they worked together on personal injury cases for many years. They have focused their careers on personal injury law, providing clients with exemplary legal representation in cases ranging from nursing home neglect to wrongful death.

Rick M. Elliott is an associate who has been with the firm since graduating from law school in August of 2011. Rick primarily focuses his practice on personal injury and motor vehicle accident cases.

In January of 2013, Retired Circuit Court Judge Kim M. Smith became a member of law firm in an Of Counsel position.  Judge Smith served Washington County, Arkansas as a Circuit Court judge for 26 years prior to his retirement from the bench on December 31st, 2012.  During his time on the bench, Judge Smith primarily handled civil cases, and his knowledge of the ins and outs of civil litigation is a huge asset to the firm.  He will primarily focus on the following types of cases:  Civil litigation, Criminal law, including felony and misdemeanor cases, DWI cases, and Expungement matters, and Breach of Contract and Condemnation claims.
