I am a trial lawyer with offices in Tulsa, Sapulpa and Muskogee. I am board certified by the National Board of Trial Advocacy as a family law trial lawyer, and I am a fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.
My process for legal work is goal-oriented: to obtain the best result possible for each client in any given situation. I tell anyone who asks how I handle cases and why I do things differently than other attorneys. My methods are objectively supported by skills training and by cutting-edge psychological research. You can read about them in the AAML's "Bounds of Advocacy," Federal Judge Claire Eagan's trial rules, and Stephen Susman's "Trial by Agreement."
All the attorneys at my law firm are especially focused on work involving complex financial issues. In 2021, I completed a year-long certificate program at SMU for financial planning, covering taxation, investments, insurance, retirement and estate planning courses, all to better my knowledge and hone my skills for advising and representing people about their life's work and savings.
I work with my clients to resolve important matters privately and by agreement when possible. When the other side is unreasonable or will not agree, I have the training and trial experience to provide skilled advocacy and representation in court for my clients.
