Practice areas

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.

Highly recommended !
Joe Norwood was a blessing.After my car accident I knew I would need someone to fight for my rights.Dont take on the insurance company yourself they will not have your best interest inmind.He fought for my collision payoff, my medical bills ,and even scored for pain and suffering.If you are unfortunate enough to get in a car accident as I was call Joe and let him deal with the insurance company.I am Glad I did.

Couldn't ask for more
Joe went above and beyond to help me! He always seemed to have the best advice for any issues I had. When others in the court were waiting on their attorney, Joe was there before me.

Great Lawyer
I lost my faith in lawyers until I met Joe. He exceeds all the ratings above. Joe cares about his clients. Joe is great in a court room setting. I would not like to face Joe as a witness. He is a great attorney.

Joe Norwood is highly effective and efficient in the practice of criminal defense. I would recommend him.
Mr. Norwood was highly effective in the defense of my son's criminal case. He has also represented my son's best friend in a similar criminal case. Overall the defense was very comprehensive and competent. The price of representation was as quoted with no surprises. Mr. Norwood was able to negotiate very reasonable deals in both of the cases as both defendants were guilty. I would recommend him to anyone that needs competent and efficient legal advocacy at a really fair rate.

Joe has been very helpful to me and My family.
Joe showed to every court hearing, when I called ,He called back promptly, answered my questions or got back with answer ASAP. He was helpful and really listened to what I was saying. I've had Lawyers in the past that screwed up my case cause they didn't listen. Joe calmed me down when I was afraid. I've never even had a parking ticket and was scared of the outcome being wrongfully charged with DUI, He believed in me as a person. He got me cleared of DUI charge and other charges reduced. I was recomended to Joe Norwood and I am so glad. Keep up the good Work Joe!
