For over 40 years Robert L. Jones, III (Bobby) has dedicated his practice to advocating his clients' interests in the courtroom and more recently, at mediations. While primarily defending major corporations, he has assisted Arkansans wronged through the fault of others.
Bobby has had considerable success in the courtroom trying over 300 jury trials, as well as hundreds of nonjury trials and multiple mediations.

He has also successfully settled over 90% of all cases he has mediated during the past 10 years.

Bobby has been elected to the Academy's Board of Director's 2010-2013.
