Fayetteville attorney Timothy Brooks has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate to serve as a U.S. District Court Judge for the Western District of Arkansas.

“The federal bench needs judges that are fair and impartial, and Timothy Brooks is a perfect fit,” U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor, D-Ark., said in a statement. “While I’m disappointed partisan gridlock delayed his confirmation, I’m pleased Senator Boozman and I were able to work with our colleagues and get him confirmed. I have no doubt that Brooks will be an asset to the federal bench and the Western District of Arkansas.”

U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., also praised Brooks’ confirmation.

“Timothy Brooks has the experience, background and temperament to unanimously qualify him for the job. I am confident that he will do an excellent job in this role and make Arkansas proud of his service,” Boozman said in the statement.

Brooks is a partner with Taylor Law Partners, LLP in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Brooks has spent his entire 24-year legal career with the firm, becoming a partner in 1993. During his legal practice, he represented individual plaintiffs and corporate clients in complex civil litigation in both federal and state courts, with an emphasis on commercial and medical malpractice cases.

Brooks earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Arkansas and a juris doctorate with honors from the University of Arkansas School of Law.
