Please let me introduce myself. My name is Brent D. Coldiron and I am a lawyer in the Oklahoma City, Edmond and Midwest City areas. Over the last 39 years I have been helping many people like you with their legal matters.
I have been serving the central Oklahoma area since 1976. My law practice is focused in Elder Law, but other legal matters can be handled by attorneys associated with my practice. In this way I provide to individuals and businesses a full range of legal representation. I am a native of Oklahoma City, graduated from the University of Oklahoma School of Law with a Juris Doctorate and was licensed to practice law in 1976. I am the founding member of my law firm. The firm focuses its practice in Elder law: estate planning, trusts, wills, guardianship law, for adults and minors, probate, Medicaid planning for long term nursing home costs, estate and trust closings, will contests, and trust litigation.
I am a member of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and the Oklahoma County Bar Associations. I am licensed to practice law in the State of Oklahoma (including Administrative Agencies – Dept. of Human Services), the Federal District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma, the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Oklahoma, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the United States Court of Veteran Appeals. I presently serve as one of the judgesfor the Municipal Court of the City of Midwest City.
I began my law practice in 1976. I have practiced for over 33 years. I have a broad background of experience. Fresh out of law school,I pledged to never sell out a client. I have handled municipal prosecution of misdemeanors, criminal defense of felonies and misdemeanors, bodily injury, product liability cases, medical malpractice, workers compensation, Social Security disability, divorces, child custody, adoptions, real estate title examination, real estate closing, evictions, small claims, preparation of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, nominations of guardians, guardianships, probates, annual accounting, closing of estates, revocable trusts, irrevocable trusts, Medicaid protective trusts, administrative fair hearings, administrative appeals, District Court non-jury and jury trials and appeals to the Oklahoma Supreme Court. Mr. Coldiron has focused on Elder Law for the last 10 years.
I am a frequent speaker at Continuing Education Seminars for fellow attorneys and other related professionals. I also speak to civic groups and churches. If you have a group that would benefit from such a presentation, you may request that a presentation be scheduled.
Clients are best served by the prevention of legal problems through careful and thorough advice given prior to their entering into transactions and business arrangements. When a legal problem does arise, clients will be assisted in finding the most practical and cost-effective solution, which may or may not include litigation.
Standards of Practice
All work is done timely and skillfully. Clients are kept informed at various stages by copies of relevant correspondence, documents, and pleadings that we produce, send, or receive on their behalf. Telephone calls are answered as promptly as possible. Information given by clients is held in strict confidence. Our goal is to see that clients receive quality legal services.
Fees and Costs
I charge a reasonable fee. In most cases I can quote a fixed set fee for the service to be rendered. My fee is based on the amount of time spent, the complexity of the case, skill required, and similar factors. The fee will be discussed and agreed to in writing before work starts. Personal injury and similar cases are accepted on a contingency fee basis.
