    I've known Brandon Burton for many years, having sent cases to him to handle in Oklahoma, and he in turn, to me in Missouri. Brandon is at the "tip of the spear", fighting the disastrous changes in the Oklahoma workers' compensation system, and protecting the rights of every working Oklahoman. Not only is he an outstanding advocate in every sense of the word, he's also an avid outdoorsman, deer hunter, and generally the sort of guy you can sit down with and enjoy a cold beer. I can personally vouch for the latter. Outstanding lawyer!
