Top 100 Women of Impact: Robyn P. Allmendinger

Robyn P. Allmendinger

Member & Management Committee Member, Rose Law Firm

About Me: I have been practicing law with Rose Law Firm since I graduated from law school in 2002. I have a transactional practice, focusing on real estate, lending and mergers and acquisitions. I served for four years as our firm’s managing member/CEO and was the first female managing member in our firm’s 200-year history.

I was born and raised in Little Rock and have been married to my high school sweetheart Kyle for 23 years. We have two teenage boys, Grant and Davis, who keep us very busy. Outside of work, I love to travel with my family, read fiction novels every chance I get and bake sweet treats.

Best Career Advice: Always put forth your best effort in whatever you do. If you’re doing something you love and are good at and are working with people you enjoy being around, then it should be easy to give 100%. If it’s not, then it’s time to evaluate if you’re in the right place.

Proudest Moment of Impact: When I was announced as our firm’s first female managing member in our 200-year history. While I had a sense this would be important, I had no idea of the impact it would have, especially on young women. I was overwhelmed at the number of people who reached out to congratulate me and comment on the significance of this “glass-breaking” moment. Most special to me were the notes I received from a couple former classmates who wrote about how excited and encouraged their young daughters were by this news.

Call to Action: I wish people were more aware of the crisis in foster care in our state. There are over 4,000 kids in foster care and fewer than 1,700 foster homes open. While not everyone is called to foster, there are so many other ways to support these children and their foster families, such as by financial support to ministries such as The C.A.L.L. and Project Zero and giving of your time by helping with meals or child care for foster families.
