Brad Broadaway

As a child, Brad Broadaway traveled door-to-door with political signs for his father, who was a campaign manager. Broadaway's father hoped his son would go into politics, but Broadaway dreamed about being an attorney instead.

After getting his law degree from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville in 1988, he went to work for the Goodwin Hamilton & Moore law firm in Paragould.

"What drew me to [being an attorney] was the litigation part, but my practice has evolved into the transactional, commercial type work," Broadaway said.

His speciality in real estate transactions has allowed him to do pro bono work for Habitat for Humanity and other nonprofit organizations.

Since becoming the firm's managing partner in 1998, Broadaway has added three attorneys, bringing the total to seven, to make the practice a more full-service law firm.

Broadaway hasn't forgotten his roots, though.

Four years ago, he was a campaign manager for a man who defeated a longtime circuit judge. This year, Broadaway helped run two other campaigns.

His philosophy is simple: "Surround yourself with good people and good things will happen."
