Our #MoreThanALawyer campaign highlights all the ways Arkansas Bar Association lawyers impact lives within and outside of their profession. ArkBar lawyers are volunteers, mentors, authors, musicians, church leaders, and committed advocates for their communities outside of the practice of law and we want to spread the good word. In all of these roles, they make a difference in their community. We will share a #MoreThanALawyer story on ArkBar’s FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages.

ArkBar’s first #MoreThanALawyer is Judge Laurie Bridewell Steele. In addition to being elected to serve on the bench for the 10th District, Division 2 for Ashley, Bradley, Chicot, Desha and Drew Counties starting this year, she was recently ordained an Episcopal Priest. She is pictured here with her husband Gibb Steele, and her sister and brother in law, Elizabeth and Kyle Smith.

Judge Steele is also currently serving on ArkBar Board of Trustees. Thank you to Judge Steele for all you do for the profession and your community!
