Wood, Schnipper & Britton has withstood the test of time and holds the impressive title as the second-oldest law firm in the state of Arkansas.

Now, with the addition of John S. Stobaugh as a partner alongside Don Schnipper and Beau Britton, the firm has changed its name to Schnipper, Britton & Stobaugh.

The firm has remained dedicated to its goal of providing their clients quality legal services while adhering to the highest ethical standards in delivering those services to each client," a news release said.

Schnipper, the senior partner in the firm, boasts over 55 years of experience. Schnipper has "enjoyed the respect of the community and his peers in the legal profession over his numerous years of practice. Notably, Mr. Schnipper is a past president of the Arkansas Bar Association."

Britton joined the firm in May 2014 as an associate and was named a partner in the firm in May 2017. Britton maintains a practice focused on the areas of estate planning and probate, property law, business law and general civil litigation. Britton is very active in the community and is a past president of the Garland County Bar Association.

The firm welcomed Stobaugh as a new partner in March 2017 after practicing for almost four years in Magnolia. Stobaugh's practice focuses on the areas of family law, criminal law, personal injury and general civil litigation.
