Meet Chad

Chad Owens has been a Taylor King Law team member since 2024.

Chad has taken a unique path to Taylor King Law. Before becoming a lawyer, he spent three years working as an x-ray and CT tech in the emergency department of a hospital in central Arkansas, one year as a freelance journalist, and two years as an administrative assistant for the Arkansas Access to Justice Commission. Once he’d obtained his law degree, Chad worked for eight years doing insurance defense, banking, and creditor’s rights, evictions, and probate cases. According to Chad, “I decided I wanted to try something new and spent two years as a public defender in criminal court. Now I’m back to working civil cases, this time on the side of plaintiffs who have been wrongfully injured.”

Outside of the office, Chad enjoys traveling and hiking with his wife, Carman, and playing with his three children. He also enjoys reading and learning new things on YouTube.

On why he chose to become a lawyer, “Before I went to law school, I spent two years working for the Arkansas Access to Justice Commission. The AATJ Commission supports legal aid programs in Arkansas that provide attorneys for people who live in poverty, need a lawyer, but can’t afford to hire one. Through that work, I observed the unique way that an attorney can help others in so many areas of life. This inspired me to become an attorney, too, so that I can help others in their time of need.”
