F. Mattison Thomas, III

Since graduating from law school in 2001, F. Mattison Thomas, III has practiced law throughout South Arkansas, proudly representing both individual and corporate clients in State and Federal Courthouses as well as many various administrative law settings. 

Matt began his law practice in a firm setting and in 2010 decided to open his own office in an attempt to eliminate many of the various conflicts which occur in a firm setting. Matt has chosen to dedicate a large part of his practice several fields of law which many other lawyers in the area do not handle. 

Since being elected to the El Dorado City Council at age 29 as an Alderman, Matt has served his community gaining valuable experience in the operation of municipal government and gaining insight to the unique legal issues which arise in the government setting. 

Additionally, for the last two years Matt has served the Town of Felsenthal as its hired City Attorney, gaining additional insight into the operations and legal issues presented when dealing with Local and State Government.
