During law school, he was a member of the Arkansas Law Review and the Appellate Advocacy Team.

Paul has been selected as a Member of the “Nation’s Top One Percent” by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel. He was chosen for demonstrating the highest ideals of the legal profession, having been vetted by a research team, a blue ribbon panel of attorneys, and a judicial review board. Paul has also been chosen by his peers to membership in the American College of Trial Lawyers and American Board of Trial Advocates.
