Our Team

On October 1, 2011, I formed my own firm, Bishop Law Firm.  I had long wanted to do this, and focus on just a few types of matters rather than the very broad based practice I had before.  I still handle the occasional traffic ticket, but my practice is now limited to just four areas: Real Estate, Small Business, Family Law and Personal Injury.

Matt Bishop

Owner

I have been practicing law since 1998, when I passed the bar in California. I did criminal defense for a year there, before moving to Dallas where for a couple of years I worked for a firm that did primarily insurance defense. Following that, I worked for a firm in Dallas which did asbestos defense work. In 2002, I moved home to Arkansas, and joined a firm in Eureka Springs, and the following year formed Thurman & Bishop in Eureka Springs with my longtime friend Greg Thurman. We later added Chris Flanagin and Thurman, Bishop & Flanagin was our name until this past October 1. On October 1, 2011, I formed my own firm, Bishop Law Firm. I had long wanted to do this, and focus on just a few types of matters rather than the very broad based practice I had before. I still handle the occasional traffic ticket, but my practice is now limited to just four areas: Real Estate, Small Business, Family Law and Personal Injury.
