H. David Blair and Robert D. Stroud founded Blair & Stroud in 1982.  Since that time, the firm has successfully litigated hundreds of cases in every level of state and federal court in Arkansas and in other states.  We have extensive experience helping people who have been seriously injured and families of persons who have been killed.  Our experience also includes representing businesses, financial institutions, and individuals in a wide range of legal matters.

 Blair & Stroud is rated “preeminent” by the leading independent attorney evaluation service in the country, and one has long been recognized in “The Best Lawyers in America.”  We work hard to provide the best possible results for our clients.  That means we take an active, personal role in their cases, letting their needs inform our course.
