Biography

A full service law firm, Michael S. Vernon Attorney at Law, PLLC is primarily focused on probate, estate planning, guardianship, real property, and civil litigation, with extensive knowledge and expertise in oil, natural gas, and renewable energy.

Born and raised in Oklahoma City, with over 15 years practicing experience, I have developed estate planning strategies to assist clients with probate, wills, trusts, and asset administration.

I have appeared before the District Court dozens of counties across Oklahoma and Texas, representing parties in well over 100 cases.

Additionally, I also create and review real estate purchase and sale contracts, agreements, deeds, mortgages, and lines of credit.

And if you're looking to start a business, I work with individuals from the ground-floor - helping with entity formation, the development of operating agreements, corporate structure, and funding.

Licensed in Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, and New Mexico.
