Partner Patrick B. Feilke oversees our office in Little Rock, Arkansas, where he specializes in all aspects of agricultural law for large and small landowners and related businesses.

He also has extensive experience in oil and gas, including title examination, agreement drafting, drilling and division order title opinions for small and large operators, and complex oil and gas litigation.

Patrick also handles regulatory and administrative matters for clients with federal and state agencies including the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality, the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission and the Arkansas Oil & Gas Commission.

Earlier in his career, Patrick worked as a staff attorney at the National Agricultural Law Center, and he has served as legal counsel for his own family’s farm operations for nearly 15 years.

Patrick earned a Master of Laws degree in agricultural and food law from the University of Arkansas Robert A. Leflar School of Law, where he wrote his thesis on hydraulic fracking and water use. He earned a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Arkansas Robert A.
