We aggressively litigate cases involving personal injury, wrongful death, nursing home (neglect, injury, or death), trucking accidents, oil field accidents, products liability, medical device, drug medical malpractice, professional negligence, and criminal defense.

The 1887 Rozelle-Murphy House
One of Little Rock’s leading ladies, the Rozelle-Murphy House is nestled in the heart of the historic Quapaw District. Serving as the Little Rock offices of Emerson Scott, LLP, the home is a feature of many historic tours of Little Rock and is a Registered Historic National Landmark.
Built in 1887 and originally constructed in the Queen Anne style by George Rozelle, the home has undergone a number of face lifts in both the Colonial Revival and Craftsman styles. The house served as Arkansas Attorney General George Murphy’s home from 1901 to 1905.
The home is deeded to the State of Arkansas under a conservation easement and has been on the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program’s public tours. Next door is the Villa Marre, well known for being featured on the television show, Designing Women.
