Our Team

William D. Thomas, Esquire

I am a dedicated and extremely motivated individual. Contrary to a common image of attorneys; I am not motivated by the shine of gold or Silver. Rather, I am dedicated and believe the language of Our Constitutions, the United States and Oklahoma, is still the Supreme Law of the Land.

I diligently fight to ensure that my clients are  treated with respect and that Judges fulfill their duties to protect the integrity, independence and impartiality of the American Judiciary and inspire the confidence of all citizens.

I want my clients to know, that before the Courts, their rights will be protected without sale, denial, delay or prejudice.
