Foreign nationals and residents of other jurisdictions who have Oklahoma-based legal matters need the following:
- An Oklahoma-licensed law firm with both local and global connections
- Attorneys and staff who are available to communicate across time zones, responsive, and technologically-sophisticated
- Results-oriented experts who operate with clinical efficiency and precision
If you live outside of Oklahoma, the last thing you need is an attorney who doesn't use email or who needs someone to help them log on to Zoom.
Our law firm combines these strengths and offers information, resources, and advocacy for non-residents in Oklahoma litigation. We have achieved extraordinary outcomes for clients in Europe, Australia, and South America, none of whom ever entered Oklahoma during our representation. When in-person appearances are necessary, we carefully coordinate events with third parties, including opposing counsel, to minimize client disruption and inefficiency.
The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted the legal industry and forced reluctant courts and legal professionals to adopt some technologies. By contrast, before 2019, our law firm was already using end-to-end encrypted conferencing technology to advise clients in the United Kingdom and beyond. We were involved in some of the earliest virtual trials that took place during lockdowns, and we have been consulted for input on white papers and resolutions concerning best practices for video depositions and trials.
Our relationships and involvement in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers give us an advantage in locating and working with qualified family law and criminal defense attorneys across the United States. We are experienced in efficient, secure information-sharing and strategizing with our foreign clients and counsel outside our jurisdiction. Our attorneys are members of the "Attorney Network" managed by the U.S. State Department's Office of Children's Issues and represent foreign national parents in Hague Abduction Convention proceedings on request.
