After obtaining my law degree in 1989, my husband and I moved to Paragould, where I became a small business owner, and established my law practice. In the course of my practice, I have served as the attorney for the Child Support Enforcement Unit, as well as Human Resource Officer/In-House Counsel for Frolic Footwear. I have further been engaged in the practice of law as an attorney associated with multi-member firms, as well as my own private practice. Throughout my practice, I have assisted clients through difficult times in cases involving child custody, guardianships, social security disability, estate/probate, and financial matters. In addition to my private practice, I serve as the City Attorney for the City of Corning where I prosecute misdemeanor charges and advise the City concerning municipal law.
Over the years, I have been actively involved in the Paragould community by serving on the Boards of the Paragould/Greene County Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Paragould, and the Greene County Community Fund; and as a member of the Paragould Rotary Club. I have also been active in the legal community by serving on the Boards of the Arkansas Volunteer Lawyers for the Elderly and Legal Aid of Northeast Arkansas. I am an active member of the Greene-Clay Bar Association and the Arkansas Bar Association. I have also served on the Board of the Learning Center, a school designed for special needs individuals.
I have been married to Brad Broadaway, my law partner, for 24 years. We have three children: Jack, age 19, who has been diagnosed with Autism, and attends Project Launch in Fayetteville, Arkansas; Whit, age 13, an 8th grade student at Crowley’s Ridge Academy; and Lily, age 9, who is a 3rd grader at Baldwin Elementary.
