After nearly a decade of workplace experience, Colby decided to attend law school to give a voice to individuals fighting their current or former employers. His decision came easy after witnessing numerous employers violate the legal rights of everyday hard-working Oklahomans. Colby graduated from the University of Oklahoma with both his Bachelors of Science degree and his juris doctorate. During law school, he received numerous academic accolades and was selected as a member of the Oklahoma Law Review.

Prior to founding his own firm, Colby gained years of litigation and trial experience with an Oklahoma City law firm. Recently, Colby earned recognition by Super Lawyers as one of the top-rated attorneys in the nation. Colby is also a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association and the Oklahoma Employment Lawyers Association.

An avid supporter of our local communities, Colby has spent countless hours volunteering his time. Since 2008, Colby has volunteered as a big brother with Big Brothers Big Sisters. When the May 2013 tornadoes struck, he was a project manager with the American Red Cross working to ensure shelters and volunteers were set up and strategically placed. Additionally, Colby spent hundreds of hours in the past decade working with local first responders, public schools, and the American Red Cross to enhance the public’s education on disaster preparedness.

Great Service and Friendly
Colby goes above and beyond without overwhelming you with legal terminology or a stuffy legal atmosphere. He was responsive and very helpful. It’s hard to find great legal help like Colby.

The perfect lawyer!
David was wonderful! I was going through a very hard time, and he made me feel comfortable in expressing the situation and took care of everything. He checked on me through the whole process, and made sure I was doing the best that I could be. He is very personable, and made trusting him very easy. I would recommend him to anyone needing legal help! 10/10 for sure.

Personable and Hard-Working
Colby was able to get me exactly what I wanted.... justice. He fought hard for me to obtain a favorable result in the case. He helped me understand everything along the way. Whenever someone says they need a lawyer, I always recommend him. I've been through many lawyers and none seemed to care like him. Thanks!

Personable Attorney with fantastic work ethic
I have hired Colby for multiple issues. I sold a car and the person I sold it to got into a wreck. The person I had sold it to did not transfer the title into their name, and I kept receiving calls and letters from collection agencies requiring me too pay for the damage caused since I was the owner of record. Colby was able to quickly resolve this issue. Colby has also helped me work on resolving a personal injury case and has answered all of my questions and kept me informed along the way.

Outstanding Attorney
Colby has been handling a case for me for almost 5 years now. It has been drug put as long as possible by the other party, but Colby has stayed true and has been right by my side through it all. I would recommend his services to anyone needing an attorney or just some legal advise.
