Meet Mosie Boyd
Mosie Boyd is a proven and trusted attorney advocate serving our community. She graduated from the University of Arkansas School of Law in Little Rock and received her license in Arkansas in 2008. The following year, she began representing clients in Fort Smith. Her legal practice covers a broad range of cases, including adoptions, foster care and child protection, veterans advocacy, defense of those who have been wronged by corporations or negligent drivers, and promoting small businesses. She is also licensed to practice law in Oklahoma and serves residents throughout the Arkansas River Valley.
Attorney Boyd is an active member of the Sebastian County Bar Association, and her commitment to the service professionals, including the police, fire and EMS departments, is proven by her work with the Sebastian County Search and Rescue Team. As a founding member of the River Valley Economic Development Council, Attorney Boyd understands the importance of economic development on the future of our community.
Active in the Democratic Party of Arkansas, Mosie has served as the past Chair of the Sebastian County Democrats. She has supported numerous candidates across the state. Her particular focus is recruiting women candidates because she believes there are many issues that deserve a new perspective.
Over the past decade, Attorney Boyd has worked closely with the Sebastian and Crawford County Drug Courts to advocate for a second chance for those who are committed to reforming their lives. As part of these programs, nonviolent drug offenders can only earn a second chance if they agree to follow a clean path comprising work, school, and enhanced family support. She has witnessed firsthand the cost-effective benefit that Drug Courts and Veterans Courts provide to clients and families. If elected, she promises to give full support to these effective programs to help alleviate the current prison and jail overcrowding issues.
An Asset for Arkansas
Ranked the second worst in Arkansas for both the number of children in foster care and the number of substance abuse arrests, Sebastian County faces an imminent and substantial drug abuse threat. This massive problem impacts schools, families, law enforcement, and it clogs the Court systems.
Uniquely qualified to understand the legal system’s critical role in bringing about change to this growing crisis, Attorney Boyd will work with schools, church and community leaders, law enforcement, and local prosecutors to reduce drugs, thereby reducing crime and the number of children who flow in and out of the foster care system.
