Our Story

Ronnie Echols founded our firm in 1977, locating his offices on the Clark County Courthouse square. In 1980, Don Thompson returned to Arkadelphia and joined Echols to form Echols & Thompson, LTD, and the pair relocated to our current location three years later. In the firm’s more than 30 years, it has welcomed a number of partners to enhance its service to the community, most recently Andrew Kneebone in 2009. In early 2011, Echols stepped into semi-retirement, leaving the firm to Thompson and Kneebone for the next chapter.

The firm has grown by building relationships with entrepreneurial clients providing services that offer clients the knowledge and resources of a larger company along with the personalized attention of a smaller organization. With an unwavering dedication to providing clients with customized solutions that add value to their business.
