Kathleen M. McDonald

Managing Partner

Beacon Legal Group PLLC

At 17, the main reason I was in Little Rock was my family; plus a full scholarship, including study abroad, from the Donaghey Scholars Program at UA Little Rock, and an awesome job at Aristotle Inc., where I got any geek cred I have. Twenty years later, I’m still here mainly because of my family, but also because of my awesome job helping businesses and individuals in Arkansas and around the globe navigate the labyrinth that is immigration law, and my involvement in my community through groups like the Little Rock Police Foundation, the Chamber’s Hispanic Business Committee and Think Big Little Rock.
