October 11, 2018

Hall Estill, Oklahoma’s leading law firm, with offices in Tulsa, Oklahoma City, Denver and Northwest Arkansas, is pleased to announce 45 of its attorneys were selected by their peers for inclusion in Oklahoma Super Lawyer’s annual list of the state’s top attorneys. Of the attorneys selected, 13 attorneys were named as Rising Stars, a prestigious recognition for up-and-coming attorneys. 

“We feel honored to once again have so many of our attorneys included on this esteemed list,” said Mike Cooke, managing partner for Hall Estill. “Being acknowledged by your peers for your expertise and skill is as meaningful of an endorsement as one could imagine. Our attorneys are always laser-focused on providing our clients with the highest level of counsel, and we are so proud of their dedication to their clients and the community.” 

One Hall Estill attorney was named a top attorney in the state: Elaine R. Turner was named a Top 25 Female attorney in Oklahoma.

Attorneys are selected using a rigorous, multi-phase rating process including peer nominations and evaluations combined with third party research.
