About me

Hayley Potts was born in Yeovil, a small town in southwest England. Before moving to the United States, Hayley graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University Law School with honors in 2010. While in England, Hayley worked with both barristers who worked in the criminal sector and with solicitors in drafting commercial leases, wills and land registration. In September, 2010, Hayley moved to Oklahoma City as part of a pro bono exchange program called Amicus, where English law graduates assist in American capital defense teams. Hayley was placed in the Oklahoma County Public Defenders Office where she worked as an investigator, assisting attorneys on numerous death penalty cases.

In August 2011, Hayley began attending Oklahoma City University School of Law to cross-qualify her as an attorney in Oklahoma and has received the Cali Excellence for the Future Award for Legal Profession. She graduated from an expedited course schedule which essentially converted her U.K. legal license to an American bar license, enabling her to practice in both countries. Her fast-track legal education enabled her to take the full courses required for her Juris Doctor in only two years, rather than the required three years of study, which she received in May 2013. As a Attorney Hayley has assisted with both criminal and civil litigations, including high profiled criminal trials. Hayley opened up her own practice, The Potts Law Office, PLLC in order to continuing practicing American law, which is a general law practice with emphasis on criminal defense and family law.

Hayley is also an accomplished Netball athlete, and when she has spare time, she likes to spend it working out, playing sports, and keeping active. She visits her mother, father and brother in England as often as possible.
