Kayla Applegate is a passionate advocate for her clients who has always loved the law and helping others. Since becoming a lawyer 10 years ago, Applegate has strived to represent her clients by carefully listening to their wants and needs in order to provide personalized and empathetic representation. Applegate’s clients praise her communication, as she takes time to thoroughly explain the legal process. Family law requires someone with a special personality, good instincts and patience, all of which she works hard to provide for her clients in divorce, adoption, custody/visitation, child support, alimony and high-asset divorce litigation.
Applegate has been recognized by Little Rock Soirée in the 2020 edition of Women to Watch and in 2016 as a Top Civil Litigation Attorney. Since 2017, she has been named to the Mid-South Super Lawyers as a Top Rated Civil Litigation Attorney.
When she is not practicing law, Applegate enjoys cycling, hiking and traveling with her husband, Ryan, who is also an attorney, as well as spending time with her family, friends and dogs Banjo and Bella.
