About Our Firm
Fighting for the injured in Oklahoma for over 40 years
Since 1974, Lawter & Associates, PLLC has been dedicated to helping injury victims throughout Oklahoma get the justice they deserve. When you or a loved one is hurt in an accident due to negligence and you need help getting appropriate compensation for your damages, you can trust our attorneys to protect your rights and fight for every dollar that you’re entitled to.
Founding attorney J. Mike Lawter believes in treating everyone the same, but that doesn't mean he and the rest of his dedicated legal team treat every case like they are same. Through a personalized and detail-orientated approach, our law firm has a strong track record of winning cases for clients and delivering justice.
With offices located in Oklahoma City and Tulsa, we handle a wide range of cases throughout the state, including car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, personal injury, and workers' compensation.
Our law firm is dedicated to serving the community and helping people in their time of need. When we work on a case, we know a successful result can have a direct impact on an injured individual or a family that lost a loved one. A successful outcome also can help create a safer community.
A large verdict in a drunk driving case, for example, can send a message that drinking and driving is unacceptable on our roads. The same idea applies for any type of careless or reckless behavior that causes injury or death. We don’t just work in Oklahoma. We live here and believe in doing what we can to improve the quality of life for our neighbors.
Our firm’s commitment to the community goes beyond our legal work. We are proud to sponsor local community events, such as the Last Bass fishing tournament every November. Each spring, we also sponsor the Labor Golf tournament.
How can Lawter & Associates help with my case?
If you or someone you love was injured in an accident that was not your fault, you may be able to recover compensation from the at-fault party for all your accident-related expenses. While you may think the process of getting compensated for your losses will be straightforward, that’s often not the case.
The bottom line is that some insurance companies give injury victims a hard time when filing a claim. They may try to get you to accept a lowball settlement offer, question the severity of your injuries, or deny your claim altogether – all in an effort to keep their costs low and company profits high. That’s when hiring an experienced lawyer for help might be a good idea.
An attorney can:
- Ensure you get the medical treatment you need and deserve
- Launch a comprehensive investigation into your accident
- Gather and preserve key pieces of evidence
- Track down and interview eyewitnesses
- Consult with experts, such as medical professionals or accident reconstruction experts
- Negotiate an appropriate settlement with the insurance company
- File a lawsuit on your behalf
- Take your case to trial and represent you in court, if necessary
At Lawter & Associates, we take pride in handling cases in a professional, efficient, and effective way. We keep in close contact with our clients throughout the entire legal process and work diligently to get the best possible outcome in your case.
