When Jordan isn't in the courtroom or spending time with his family, he takes time to aid the impoverished and encourage the youth of Arkansas.

Attorney Jordan Tinsley

Jordan takes cases pro bono, especially when he sees the scales of justice tipping too far against those less fortunate. He has been selected to serve on the Criminal Justice Act panel for the Eastern District of Arkansas, and the Arkansas Public Defender Commission has certified Jordan to represent indigent defendants charged with all crimes up to Y felonies in courts across the state.

Jordan also enjoys helping high school kids in Arkansas through his work with the Arkansas Bar Association's Mock Trial Committee. Jordan has been a coach, a judge, and a tournament coordinator for the Arkansas High School Mock Trial Competition. In 2013, the President of the Arkansas Bar Association appointed Jordan as Chair of the Mock Trial Committee and Jordan hopes to use his leadership to make the Arkansas High School Mock Trial Competition bigger and better.
