About Me

I am proud to represent people who have been injured, wrongfully lost money or employment, a victim of a civil rights violation or charged with a criminal offense or DUI in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I have built my legal philosophy around the idea that all people should have an avenue to justice when injured or lost money due to the wringful act of another and that the criminal justice system only protects the right of citizens when people charged with crimes are afforded the representation necessary to zealously protect their rights and freedom. I have represented blue collar workers, business professionals, juveniles, friends and family members, those who have been injured, wrongfully lost employment or money and those charged with DUI, felonies and misdemeanors ranging from drug offenses to assault and battery and murder and manslaughter
