Sandra Marie Lefler has the years of experience you need in a variety of legal disciplines. Sandra was admitted to the State Bar of Texas in 1987, the Oklahoma Bar Association in 1988, and the State Bar of California in 2015.
She began her legal career as a commercial litigator with the international firm of Fulbright & Jaworski (now Norton Rose Fulbright) in Houston, Texas, where she was mentored by some of the finest litigators in the nation.
She completed the National Institute for Trial Advocacy and served such clients as the Texas Municipal Power Authority in a $7 Billion suit for cost overruns in construction of a nuclear power plant; General Motors in automotive warranty defense cases; and a medical equipment manufacturer for trademark and trade name infringement. A native Tulsan, Sandra returned to her home town and opened her own firm in the early 1990’s.
She litigated complex business disputes during the collapse of the savings & loan industry, prosecuted the infringement of an engineering patent, defeated Constitutional law defenses to obtain a successful defamation and privacy verdict against an International private organization; and litigated personal injury cases, contested probates and trust administrations.
On the transaction side, Sandra represented software development companies, assisted clients in oil and gas acquisitions totaling in the tens of millions of dollars, represented real estate builders and developers, and became an accomplished title attorney.
It was also in the early 1990’s that Sandra began her wills, probate, and trusts practice, initiated by the untimely death of a local, young businessman leaving a widow and 2 young children behind.
After spending 18 months administering his trust, setting up guardianships for his children, and transitioning his business to his widow, Sandra knew there had to be a better way and developed an estate planning practice, helping hundreds of families design plans to suit their needs.
In service to the Bar, Sandra performs generous pro bono services to those in need and provides reduced fee representation for low income clients. Sandra was also an instructor for the Oklahoma Bar Review in the subjects of Corporations, Agency and Partnerships, and Torts.
