“We are committed to providing the best service and results to our clients,” said Julie DeWoody Greathouse, managing member. “With these additions, we can expand the scope of services for our existing and future clients.”
Tacker focuses her practice on guiding clients through complex regulatory approvals representing public utilities including electric, telephone, gas and water providers before the Arkansas Public Service Commission. She also represents clients in utility- and energy-related litigation, enforcement actions, regulatory proceedings and offers advice on infrastructure development projects associated with public utilities.

She also was responsible for the management of the Environmental Division, Consumer Protection Division, Charities Bureau, Health Care Bureau and Tobacco Bureau while with the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office. Tacker earned her bachelor’s degree from the University of Central Arkansas and her law degree from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Bowen School of Law.

During law school, he served as a note and comment editor for the Arkansas Law Review and won Best Brief in the annual Ben J. Altheimer Moot Court Competition. Stobaugh also received the 2018 Bard Rogan Natural Resources Award, which is awarded annually to the top student in the areas of oil and gas law, public lands law, water law and energy law.
