Walt Coleman, “the dean of NFL officials” who served for 30 seasons and retired from officiating in January of 2019, will speak at the PCBA’s December Monthly Luncheon. Coleman is one of seven officials who have worked in the NFL for 30 or more years. Coleman — number 65 on the officiating roster — was hired by the league in 1989 from the Southwest Conference as a line judge when some of the current NFL officials were in middle school. After the Southwest Conference required native Arkansans to officiate University of Arkansas games, he applied for work in the NFL. Walt is the brother of Charlie Coleman, who is a partner at Wright, Lindsey & Jennings LLP, and on the PCBA Board of Directors.

A message from the President:

The Pulaski County Bar Association 2022-2023 bar year is upon us, and I am honored to serve as your president. I am proud to say that the Pulaski County Bar Association is continuing to monitor the COVID-19 numbers and has reconfigured its Continuing Legal Education and monthly luncheons model to address concerns brought on by COVID-19. We have been resilient and imaginative in our effort to move forward, and I cannot thank each of you enough for your continued support.

The PCBA is a very active bar association with over 1,000 members who participate in monthly luncheons, CLE programs, socials, and service. Together we foster a strong community of lawyers, from all areas of practice and this means we often see a familiar face when we walk into a courtroom, deposition, mediation, or now Zoom meetings and webinars. Friends, I know you value this as much as I do, and I thank you for your membership and contributions to our community.

The official PCBA bar year begins July 1st and will end June 30th, 2023. Now more than ever, the PCBA needs your continued financial support to guarantee that we can continue our efforts to provide excellent CLE, webinars, luncheons, and socials to all the attorneys.

We welcome online payments by credit card by clicking: In order to effectively budget, we would appreciate receiving your membership payment by October 1st.

We will continue our in-person monthly membership luncheons. This year’s luncheons will be held at Red & Blue Events Venue. Additionally, with each monthly meeting, our goal is to provide you with an hour of CLE.

As we gear up for the upcoming bar year, please contact me, our Executive Director, Carol King, or any member of our board if you would like to share your thoughts or become more involved. I look forward to seeing you all again soon!


Shana Woodard Graves, President
Pulaski County Bar Association
