Home Practice Areas Criminal Law

Criminal law is the body of law that relates to crime. It regulates social conduct and proscribes whatever is threatening, harmful, or otherwise endangering to the property, health, safety, and moral welfare of people. It includes the punishment of people who violate these laws. Criminal law varies according to jurisdiction, and differs from civil law, where emphasis is more on dispute resolution and victim compensation than on punishment.

Unfortunately, Cash Counts! The BEST Criminal Defense can be expensive!

We are proud to have tried 39 HOMICIDE CASES [the killing of one person by another] with only one conviction resulting in prison, and a light sentence at that! 

Another noteworthy accomplishment was the First Degree Murder defense of a woman who shotgunned her husband to death while camping at Blue Hole, near Lake Hudson, in front of more than 15 of his relatives at a holiday reunion. My defense was believed to be the first successful “Battered Wife Syndrome Defense” in Oklahoma. My client had been terribly physically and mentally abused by her husband, over a period of years. The Jury found her to be “temporarily insane” at the time of the shooting, but “sane at the time of trial”! She walked out of the courtroom a free woman, after being held in the County Jail for almost a year without bond.
