John P. Talbot

Practice Focus
Jack Talbot's practice is concentrated in business law and litigation, often with a focus on the rural economy. In the traditional business area, he has extensive experience representing individual and corporate clients in commercial, real estate, contract and bankruptcy disputes, as well as disputes involving probate estates, wills and trusts. In the agribusiness area, he regularly represents local and absentee landowners, farming partnerships, input suppliers and crop lenders in both litigated and non-litigated operational matters. Representation has included contested farm program matters before USDA. Early in his career, before concentrating in these areas, Mr. Talbot assisted with the firm's insurance defense practice, and he still represents some longtime, self-insured clients in the area of workers compensation defense.
Professional Background
Mr. Talbot joined the Bridges firm upon completion of law school in 1997. He is a member of the American Bar Association and its Litigation section; the Arkansas Bar Association and its Real Estate and Agricultural Law sections; the American Agricultural Law Association; and the Arkansas Self Insured Association. He is also a chapter author and contributor to Handling Appeals in Arkansas.
A lifelong resident of Pine Bluff, Mr. Talbot has served as president of the Pine Bluff Rotary Club; as a director of the Pine Bluff Chamber of Commerce, Fifty for the Future of Pine Bluff and Pine Bluff Downtown Development; and as a warden, vestry member, usher and lay reader at his church, Grace Episcopal. He is married with three children.
