Three long-standing law firms based in Little Rock, Arkansas merged to become what we are today. The three merging firms consisted of McDaniel, Richardson & Calhoun, PLLC, having a focus on government relations and civil litigation, Wolff & Ward PLLC, specializing in tax, business law and estate planning, and Benca & Johnston PLLC which practiced in the area of criminal law and family law. The resulting firm moved into a brand new office building in downtown Little Rock Arkansas in late 2019.
