Meet Lorie

What most excites you about your work and the contribution you can make?

  • The change, as change is constant and we have a positive impact in that change. Family law is so close to the heart and people feel wounded. It is important that the role we have is effective, yet minor, as they move forward with their life.


What is your favorite meal, apart from the holidays?

  • Chicken and dumplings


Is there something you wish you could do over again?

  • Regret is no place to live.


If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?

  • An elephant. Its nature is gentle, it is very protective of its family and remains docile unless it needs to fight and then it stomps butt.

  • A daily large bouquet of assorted orchards, tiger lilies and carnations that smell of pine trees, sandalwood, lemongrass, and daffodils.

  • About 20 minutes


What is the one thing you have always wanted to do?

What “lesson from Mom” do you still live by today?

  • Take out the trash, do dishes and wash clothes because if your house smells bad, those things are the culprit.

  • Rode bicycles and cut alfalfa with a swather.


What was your first job?

  • I was a grocery clerk for Jim and Jeanette Sparks of Prairie City.


Who was the biggest influence in your career?

  • Barbara Bartlett, Attorney at Law, Tulsa, OK. I started as her legal secretary before law school. She is a family law attorney in Tulsa and I loved her style.
