Address: Rogers, Arkansas
Josie Graves decided on her career path as an attorney at the young age of 14. Having spent many of her childhood years involved with the judicial system as an abuse victim, she knew early on that she wanted to advocate for others just as others had advocated on her behalf as a child.
A Northwest Arkansas native, Josie graduated from Gentry High School in 2012. In order to stay close to her five younger siblings, she chose to attend the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, where she earned her B.A. in Psychology, along with minors in Spanish and Arabic. She then headed straight to law school on the same campus, graduating from the University of Arkansas School of Law in 2019.
Josie is driven by her desire “to fight for those who aren’t in a position to fight for themselves and to speak for those who would otherwise be silenced.” This passion for advocacy meant there was no better role for her than that of a plaintiff’s attorney. She now focuses on civil litigation, in all its various forms. If you’ve been hurt, she wants to help.
Beyond the job, Josie enjoys family, faith, and all forms of art. She is a published poet and plays multiple instruments. Outside the office, you’ll likely find her somewhere on her family farm, writing or playing guitar under the open skies.
