PPGMR Law attorneys and staff volunteered in partnership with the Arkansas Foodbank and the Geyer Springs United Methodist on December 2, 2020 as part of a firmwide service project. The PPGMR team was able to help package more than 250 meal boxes in just three hours. PPGMR Law is committed to giving back to the community that has given so much to us and looks forward to volunteering with the Arkansas Foodbank again.
Congratulations to managing partner Julie DeWoody Greathouse and partner Jamie Fugitt for being recognized by Arkansas Business as two of the state’s most influential leaders for their legal and economic development expertise.
