Winner, Best Law Firm


Katherine Blackmon Carroll is the owner and managing attorney at the Law Offices of Katherine E. Blackmon in Little Rock, a trauma-informed family law firm with an emphasis on helping clients navigate difficult times with empathy and expertise.


Almost three decades ago, Blackmon Carroll opened her one-room law practice in the Centre Place building downtown. “I asked God to send me clients in the area of law where I was most needed, and my first custody case walked through the door,” Blackmon Carroll said. “I now own the 11th floor in that same building, and God is still sending me amazing family-law clients.”


As proud as Blackmon Carroll is of her own accomplishments, she is even more proud of and thankful for her team, including Jalen Toms, senior associate attorney, Lydia Hicks Hamlet, associate attorney, and the newest member of the firm, Jordyn Nykaza, associate attorney. Their tenacity, work ethic and fierce advocacy enable them to guide clients through some of the most emotionally fraught times of their lives, fighting aggressively for their clients while also walking with them through the emotions that go hand in hand with a divorce or custody matter.


“I think people would be surprised to know that while we are a tough group of attorneys, we are also a very sensitive group of people,” Blackmon Carroll said. “We genuinely care not just about the case, but how our clients feel while going through it and, ultimately, how they feel when their case is over.”


From the start, Blackmon Carroll’s law firm has been built on hard work and integrity; with this dedicated team, the firm’s reputation for excellence is firmly cemented.
