April Cotton is an Associate Attorney in our Little Rock office. She focuses her practice on family law and domestic relations, wills, trusts, estate planning, and administration, aging services, medical malpractice, insurance coverage, products liability, labor and employment and education matters.

Prior to joining the firm, April worked at a full-service corporate defense firm where she worked primarily in the areas of products liability, premises liability, general liability, medical malpractice, labor and employment and education matters. Earlier in her career, she worked as an internal products liability litigation paralegal for one of the largest retail chains in the United States. While serving as a paralegal, April provided support during one of Arkansas’ historic desegregation cases where plaintiffs sought unitary status, decades after the Court determined school districts were unconstitutionally segregated and placed under court supervision since 1982. She also participated in the representation of several institutions of higher learning in Title VII and Title IX litigation. In addition, she has assisted in the defense of civil rights claims against correctional health care professionals.

As an active and long-time member of the Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church in Little Rock, April has spoken throughout the United States about the important relationship between the United Methodist Church and Historically Black Colleges and Universities and has fundraised on behalf of these institutions.

April earned a J.D. from the University of Arkansas Little Rock, William H. Bowen School of Law, and also holds a B.S. from Philander Smith College, where she is now an Adjunct Professor teaching Constitutional Law, Judicial Process, Women in Politics, and Intro to Political Science courses.
