Andy Vines

Growing up with a father who had multiple sclerosis, Andy Vines, 36, developed a perspective on life different from that of many children.

"I think that's helped develop in me a sense of compassion that I think has really helped me be more sensitive to things in the world," Vines said.

Vines went on to study at the University of Arkansas School of Law at Fayetteville, where he graduated in 1998.

Vines said the greatest challenge that he faces regularly is balancing community work while managing a law practice. The Little Rock native called his promotion to partner at Wright Lindsey & Jennings in 2005 his greatest accomplishment.

He serves on the foundation board for Little Rock Catholic High School and the leadership board of the Arkansas chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Vines, whose mother was recently diagnosed with cancer, also serves with the Central Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute's Auxiliary, a volunteer organization.
From 2006 through 2008, Vines was named a Chambers USA Leader in the field of litigation.

Vines said his motto is plain and simple: work hard.

"It's important to me to work hard here at the firm, but also to give back and serve the community and try to work hard in all of those pursuits," Vines said.
