SELLERS: Real estate contracts should be taken with the same level of seriousness and commitment as any other contract. If you “change your mind” after signing on the dotted line, you will open yourself up to serious legal and financial consequences. In other words, don’t expect any represented party to simply walk away.
If you find yourself facing a DUI charge, call us ASAP.
Landlords, when your tenant doesn’t pay, disrespects you, and believes you owe HIM the gift of free rent, call our office. We believe in fairness. Many tenants are entitled to financial assistance, especially in light of economic distress during the COVID pandemic; HOWEVER, there are those who simply “work the system” in an effort to avoid paying rent. If you are pulling your hair out, call us at (405) 696-0721.
This was in my memories feed, and I loved what we were able to do here.
Contract disputes are among the most common cases we encounter. We’ve recently been able to “undo” thousands of dollars in potential damages, but the clients would’ve saved even more thousands (not to mention added stress and anxiety) if they had enlisted legal assistance on the front end.
Many times, clients wait until a crisis has overtaken them before contacting an attorney. Please don’t make that mistake. Most problems are easier solved (or even circumvented) when presented to us before the devastating impact has been absorbed. Watch for the warning signs. Retaining an attorney when the storm is on the horizon is far better than waiting until it’s on top of you.
Advocate, Negotiate, Mediate, Litigate—This firm is dedicated to deciding the best pathway for your case. We really like to keep people out of court when at all possible, and we do a very good job of considering the practical and financial implications involved in making the proper determination. No two cases are identical.

You are unique, and so is your situation.

Tailoring and crafting—these are our strong points.

The practice of law without creativity is a “one size fits all” construct—one which we reject.

If you want a “think outside the box” attorney, call us.

Homebuyers: If I could give only one free tidbit of legal advice, it would be this—If you’re considering a home with an HOA, insist upon a copy of the CCRs prior to making an offer. Read them carefully. If the restrictions are too cumbersome, do not proceed. My office is bombarded with calls about overly intrusive and restrictive HOAs. Trust me: They can be your best friend or your worst enemy. Consequences of failure to comply range from penalties to foreclosure. Life is too short to deal with stressful and rigid demands. Sure, you might slow down or even forgo the purchase, but an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

If you do not understand the verbiage in the document, contact this firm or another one for assistance.
There are many reasons our firm does not offer free legal advice over the phone to non-clients. First and foremost, it would be negligent and unethical. We must be able to set aside the time to hear the facts, see the pertinent docs, and analyze the situation. This will best ensure that viable options can be offered. No two cases are the same, and there are no cookie cutter answers. A consultation is important and can be conducted in person or socially distanced.
We Mediate Business and Civil Disputes
Prospective Clients: I will be away from the office in January. I will return and will be able to consult with you after 2/1/21.

Sheila is a strong advocate for you and will vigorously work to defend your legal rights. Most issues can be resolved without going to trial, and her strong negotiation skills will often play an important role in your conflict or case.

The most common form of elder abuse is financial exploitation. It’s not always easy to spot. Be observant. Protect and report.

Please don’t sign a contract without consulting an attorney. It could make the difference between minor discomfort and expense upfront vs. extreme suffering and financial devastation in the end. We see this every day. Contract attorneys are trained to see not only what IS there, but also what ISN’T there. A misplaced comma, an unreasonable term, a missing clause—these can all be detrimental to your interests. No matter how simple it seems, it’s not. Be smart. Protect yourself.
