Tulsa, Oklahoma

I have been a solo practitioner in Tulsa for 27 years. I regularly teach Continuing Legal Education classes on the subject of ethics. My practice consists of representing lawyers who have disciplinary issues by helping them navigate through formal and informal grievances, disciplinary hearings, interim suspensions, reinstatements, and the effect mental health issues could have on their license to practice.  I provide guidance to lawyers and law firms on the application of ethical rules to the day-to-day practice of law.

In my spare time:  I am a comedian that has performed at the Tulsa Loony Bin for the last few years,  and I have won several local contests and have performed out of town gigs.  I also make fine jewelry and have a design patent, D601,919 with the US Patent Office.
