EXCELLENT ATTORNEY
I highly recommend Mr. Louden and his services. Mr. Louden was very helpful, professional and attentive about my concerns about his experience with Father’s Right’s (I was researching attorneys before filing again). I called him and communicated my concerns about his advocacy for father’s rights. I felt comfortable after our conversation. He was patient with me as I asked many questions before I even met for my initial consultation. He treated my divorce with unprejudiced service. He is very reasonable with his fees.

Honest, dependable and also a fellow Vet!
I have hired Mr Lounden2 times. The first time l hired Mr Louden 20 years ago was on an appeal in Lawton and l felt like l was in court with the Lone Ranger. He corrected the judge multiple times on what the Oklahoma Law actually said. 2nd time l hired him l desperately needed his help. He guided me almost daily for months and was always available to answer questions when l needed honest answers! I honestly feel if l had hired another attorney my bill would of been 2 or 3 times as high but, because Mr Louden does not charge by the hour l didnt worry about being charged 150 dollars for him to answer a question!

Child Custody
He was very prompt on getting back to me. He was very knowledgeable of the law and how it works. I respect his opinion even if it wasnt what I wanted to hear. He was not just looking for money.

Father
Pete, is the premier father's rights attorney in the Oklahoma City area! If you'r a father and you are dealing with a divorce/custody issue, then you need to retain Pete as your attorney. The legal system has no love for fathers and Pete will help you navigate the legal minefields. Pete's sage legal counsel along with his experience as a combat veteran give him the tenacity to fight for what little rights fathers are entitled to. I have known Pete for around 13 years and am honored not only to call him my Attorney, but also my friend! Give Pete a call, he will take care of you!

Joint Custody,
We contacted Pete with questions and he was able to meet with us the next day. We hired him to handle our joint custody case and he was so easy to talk too and walked us through every step. We were extremely pleased with the outcome. He was always easy to reach and quick to respond to any questions we had. We would recommend him highly to anyone needing his services.
