Troy is one of only a handful of Arkansas attorneys selected on merit as a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers. Membership in the Academy is open only to those who have at least 15 years of excellence in appellate practice.

Professional Experience

Over the 20 years since he clerked for the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit in St. Louis, Price has earned a reputation as one of Arkansas’s most experienced and highly regarded appellate lawyers. Price has handled more than 50 appeals in state and federal courts and has presented oral arguments more than 15 times in appeals before the Arkansas Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. He is also admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States.

A former journalist, Troy is especially proud of his representation of a newspaper in a case in which the Arkansas Supreme Court ruled that a circuit judge violated the First Amendment when it ordered a reporter not to write about proceedings in open court.

In addition to focusing on ERISA and other employee benefits litigation in his practice, Price is also recognized as an authority in First Amendment law.

Price is a frequent speaker on appellate and ERISA litigation matters, and he was the author of a chapter on abstracting practice in the Arkansas Bar Association’s handbook on appellate practice.
