Giving Back

Smith Hurst and its lawyers and support personnel believe that giving back to the community is a benevolent obligation. We are pleased and proud to devote a significant amount of our time and resources to advance the goals and objectives of our nonprofit, charitable, educational and philanthropic organizations on a local and state-wide basis.  

Whether it be the service of our lawyers and personnel on local boards such as the Northwest Arkansas Council, Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, Morgan Nick Foundation, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the Fayetteville Community Foundation, the Walton Arts Center Corporate Leadership Council, the University of Arkansas Technology Development Foundation, the University of Arkansas Fort Smith Foundation, the MANA Foundation, LifeSource, and the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks, among others, our service on state-wide boards and committees, such as chairing the Arkansas Venture Capital Forum, co-chairing Arkansas’s Federal Tax Institute, serving as President of the Tax Section of the Arkansas Bar Association and serving on the Board of the Arkansas State Chamber of Commerce, or serving as adjunct professors at the University of Arkansas School of Law, each year our people devote a significant amount of time and financial resources to the betterment of the region and state and to advance the arts and sciences and to help those who help the less fortunate.

We strongly believe that pro bono work makes our lawyers better citizens and better lawyers. It sharpens their legal expertise, and makes them more well-rounded, mature, sophisticated individuals.

From a financial perspective, in addition to the funds given by Smith Hurst on its own behalf, we are proud to participate in matching charitable contributions of our attorneys and personnel pursuant to our charitable gift matching policy.

Our team shares an attitude of excellence while
helping our clients achieve their business and personal goals.
