Juvenile Law

Your children are the most important people in your life. Unfortunately, sometimes they have legal issues of their own. Children who commit crimes in Oklahoma are charged as delinquents. There is a separate and unique process for handling these types of cases. The penalties can range from probation to confinement in special facilities run by the Oklahoma Office of Juvenile Affairs. In certain situations, it’s even possible to avoid prosecution altogether through timely negotiations. Because our attorneys have knowledge and experience with the juvenile justice system, you can feel confident entrusting them to defend your children.

Expungements

Even though it has been years since you completed probation, your arrest might still be available for the world to see. Maybe that dismissed Victim Protective Order still pops up on a background check. Just because your case is dismissed doesn’t mean that it was removed from your record. The legal process for removing items from your background report is called an expungement. In Oklahoma there are two different kinds of expungements that apply to criminal cases. We have experience with both types and can even help you expunge a Victim Protective Order. Don’t let your past dictate your future. Call us today to see if you qualify for an expungement.

  • Section 991(c)
  • Section 18/19 (full expungement)
Personal Injury

Personal injury cases are unique in multiple ways—one of the best is that you don’t pay until you win. This means you get the full services of the Duncan and Hill Team without paying a penny. When we take on a personal injury case we do an intensive interview with our client about what happened and then review the documents, including any police reports, medical bills, insurance claims, and whatever else is relevant. At Duncan and Hill, we are prepared to take your case to trial and will fight those responsible for causing your injuries, as well as insurance companies that lowball or reject legitimate claims. We are also prepared to settle your case in a meaningful way if it means getting you the best outcome possible—We will thoughtfully go over every option and let you, the client, decide the strategy the team should pursue. And we will always fight to get you the biggest recovery possible.

Car Crash

Car crashes occur every day. Sometimes we are lucky enough to escape injury and are back on the road in a few days. Other times, injuries are severe enough to ruin your career and livelihood. When you and your family’s future is on the line, it’s important to hire an attorney to be in your corner. We love meeting with potential clients in person whether that be over coffee or at our office. We never want our clients to hesitate to consult with us about their accident and injuries so we always offer free consultations. We will discuss how to get your bills paid and future secured. The decisions are in your hands, but we are prepared to guide and advise you all along the journey to help you move forward with your life.

DUI

Many don’t know what the legal limit is, or how many drinks it takes to get above it. As a result, DUIs are incredibly common. Criminal charges associated with DUI can range from Actual Physical Control, Driving While Intoxicated, Driving Under the influence, to Aggravated DUI. If you’ve been charged with DUI (or one of its variations), you need to hire an attorney as soon as possible from the date of arrest—not only to address the criminal charge but also the civil action brought by the Department of Public Safety (“DPS”) to take away your driver’s license. Certain legal deadlines to contest the DPS action come and go within just 15 days from arrest. When you hire Duncan & Hill quickly after a DUI arrest, we are able to request a hearing with DPS to prevent the automatic suspension of your license. We are experienced in DUI law and can handle both the criminal action, as well as the civil DPS case so that you don’t have to worry.

Divorce

The process of getting divorced is the lowest point in many of our client’s lives. We understand. We know that having someone fight for you during this process is imperative. We want each and every divorce client to get a new start on their terms. Every divorce case is different. We always start with a face-to-face meeting to discuss how we can help maximize your financial security. If children are involved, we will fight for your time with your children. We are experienced in cutting ties with the old and starting anew—in a way that sets our client up for success. Make sure that when you divorce, you do so in a strategic and intelligent way.
