BEING CHALLENGED IN LIFE IS INEVITABLE, BEING DEFEATED IS OPTIONAL.

FOR SOME, A CHALLENGE CAN BE AN EXCUSE TO SHY AWAY FROM CIRCUMSTANCES. IT IS ALL THE MORE REASON TO FACE THE SITUATION, AND THIS IS EXACTLY HOW I REPRESENT OUR CLIENTS, AS WE FACE CHALLENGES TOGETHER.

In Kindergarten, I walked across the stage to the middle, standing next to my teacher, telling all of my friends and their families that I wanted to be a lawyer when I grow up. I didn’t think it would actually happen until halfway through my undergraduate degree when I was accepted into law schools.

As much as I love learning, I was a doer. At the University of Tulsa College of Law, any chance I had to work outside of the class rather than sit in a room, I took it. With that, I worked for Honorable John Dowdell in the U.S. Northern District of Oklahoma for one summer where I read motions and summary judgments, researched the issues, and wrote more than 15 drafts of opinions for Judge Dowdell. I also worked for Life Church legal counsel, Tulsa County Public Defenders’ Office, Check-6, Inc., Fry & Elder law firm, and Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office. Any opportunity I have to go and do, I take it.

After graduating law school in the top of my class and passing the bar, I worked at the Tulsa County District Attorney’s office, where I tried jury trials for misdemeanor and felony cases. After gaining invaluable trial experience there, I joined my grandfather, father, and their partners here at Richardson Richardson Boudreaux. Now I have the opportunity to serve individuals in what may be one of the most challenging times in their lives. We would love the opportunity to serve you.
