Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial Media

I'm attorney Elton Jenkins. Since 1999, I have practiced criminal law in Oklahoma. Growing up on the southwest side of Oklahoma City, I saw people close to me face criminal charges. I quickly learned why people accused of a crime need a lawyer on their side.

Throughout my career, I have kept those experiences in mind. While I go to trial more often than many lawyers, I also know that sometimes a reasonable solution involves negotiation. By preparing carefully and presenting my client's case, I am often able to achieve alternative resolutions such as treatment and rehabilitation instead of jail time.

I also understand how stressful this experience is for you. I will be straightforward with you at all times and will work hard to ease your worries.

For 12 years, I worked as a major crimes trial attorney for Oklahoma Indigent Defense System. During this time, I worked on 150 major crime cases a year such as sexual assault, robbery and murder. I have extensive experience defending clients against criminal charges that can result in life in prison.

In addition to criminal law, I assist clients with family law and personal injury. I recently won a $1.2 million judgment in a car accident case that went to trial.

My secretary is a critical part of the staff. She is excellent with clients, knows their cases well and helps put people at ease.

By staying current with technology, I ensure that up-to-date legal and client resources are available. For example, my firm uses online services that allow clients to log in and access information about their account.

My firm also accepts credit cards, checks and cash. You can make payments over the phone if that is convenient for you.
