124 year old law firm to close down

Warner Smith & Harris, a Fort Smith, Arkansas based firm founded in 1887, is set to close after a sting of defections left the firm incapable of servicing its clients. The firm had 18 lawyers in 2008, but in recent months no more than a handful of lawyers were working with the firm. The decision was made to dissolve the firm before it became financially unsound: The firm will close its doors for the last time on 31 July 2011, after all liabilities are paid and all legal matters are reassigned.
