Why do you want to get involved at 36°N?

I am a young attorney, and I am not from the Tulsa area. I wanted to meet people that will one day be movers and shakers in Tulsa.

What are you most proud of in your career?

I have successfully litigated cases in front of the Oklahoma Supreme Court and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Why would someone want to meet with you?

It is important to meet with an attorney to discuss all aspects of a business as there are many legal issues entrepreneurs face. Many times, people do not meet with an attorney early enough and do not realize the importance of an attorney until it is too late.

What are you working on right now that excites you?

I am currently advising multiple large oil and gas clients with respect to various bankruptcies that have been filed throughout the United States. The issues I get to work on and advise our clients on are stimulating and quite challenging.

What do you want to get out of helping at 36°N?

I would like to help Tulsa become an incubator for great startup ideas. I would like to hopefully advise someone that one day becomes incredibly successful.
