Chip Gross

Attorney At Law

Serving Bryant, Fayetteville, Hot Springs Village, and Bentonville

Geoffrey “Chip” Gross is a familiar face at The Elrod Firm. He trained with us during his last semester of law school, and upon passing the bar, he practiced in our Bentonville and Fayetteville locations until the summer of 2023. After that, he stepped away briefly to act as Judicial Law Clerk for Associate Justice Cody Hiland of the Supreme Court of Arkansas for the Court’s 2023/2024 term. He then returned to our firm to specialize in probate, trust administration, and guardianship. Operating out of Bryant, Chip manages the firm’s cases statewide.

Chip came to law a little later than usual because, aside from being a talented attorney, he is also an exceptionally talented musician. And it is his love for music that initially led him down a different path: After studying music composition in his native California and spending some time discovering the meaning of “starving artist,” Chip met the woman he would eventually marry and realized that this new chapter in his personal life also meant changes to his professional one. He moved to Arkansas, earned a Masters in Education at UALR, directed choirs, gave private music lessons, and taught music and English in public and charter schools for seven years. Finally, he attended UALR’s William H. Bowen School of Law, where he served as Executive Editor of the UA Little Rock Law Review and graduated with honors in 2022.

Chip and his wife Susanne have four children (as of August of 2024), a spoiled cat, and a neighbor’s dog that seems to believe she is also theirs. He still teaches private lessons and plans to return to composing someday.
