Serving Rim Country Since 1985
Lloyd Law Group
After growing up in the heat and congestion of the valley, Art Lloyd decided that if he ever got the opportunity, he would move to Rim Country. That opportunity came in 1977, and Art settled in Payson with his family. In 1985, he opened the doors to his law firm after graduating from law school in Arkansas (law school was less expensive in Arkansas than Arizona). Shortly after passing the bar, Judge Barry DeRose offered Art an opportunity to provide public defender work, and after winning his first three jury trials, Gila County took notice and assigned him the most difficult and serious cases. He held that position until the mid-90’s. During that time, Art represented Gila County residents in more than a hundred different trials. In the mid-90’s, Art accepted a position as Judge Pro Tem and served on the bench for 7 years, presiding primarily over criminal cases.
In 1992, a young couple came to see Art because of the poor medical care that severely injured their infant daughter. With the help of co-counsel, Art successfully tried the case and obtained what is still the largest verdict in Gila County. Emboldened by his success, Art transitioned his focus away from criminal law to medical malpractice and serious personal injury.
Realizing the complexities of medical malpractice cases, Art went back to school – so to speak. First, he completed the American College of Advocacy Training programs, receiving their highest rank of Diplomat. In addition, he completed the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College program. Over the years, Art has attended hundreds of classes, seminars and workshops, all focused on better advocacy for his clients. Art has been invited to lecture at the National Convention of the American Association for Justice, as well as the Arizona Association for Justice. Art is currently the Vice President of the Arizona Association for Justice (formerly Arizona Trial Lawyers Association).
In 2015, Art’s son, Evan Lloyd, joined the firm. Following in his father’s footsteps, Evan graduated from the Gerry Spence Trial Lawyers College, the Arizona Association for Justice Advanced Deposition College, the Eric Oliver Jury Persuasion program, and dozens of national and regional seminars and workshops for trial lawyers. Evan has split his practice between medical malpractice and criminal law and has successfully adjudicated numerous cases, both civil and criminal.
