Before 2010, the Tulsa family law firm of Fry & Elder had just two attorneys on staff, but in five short years the firm has tripled in size to where it now has six lawyers on staff. Kathleen M. Egan is the newest addition to the legal team. She recently began working at Fry & Elder as an associate attorney, and, in doing so, has become the first female attorney to ever work for the highly-reputable Tulsa law firm.
“I think the firm knew it was time to bring in a woman,” Egan said. “They are growing and are taking on more clients and cases. I think that it sometimes helps to have that (female) perspective because you know what they (female clients) are going through and can sometimes lend an ear a little easier.”
While the firm now takes on personal injury and criminal law cases, Fry & Elder is still considered to be an elite Tulsa family law firm, and Egan should only enhance the firm’s reputation in the legal realm of family law. She brings in over eight years of family law experience through her work on many high-asset family law cases and also has experience handling high stakes personal-injury cases.
Not only is Egan the first female attorney at Fry & Elder, she is the first lawyer at the Tulsa family law firm who is licensed to practice law in three states. In addition to being able to practice law in Oklahoma, Egan also can practice law in New York and Connecticut.
After graduating with her Juris Doctorate from the Touro College Jacob D. Fuchsberg Law Center in Central Islip , N.Y., Egan work for multiple New York based law firms – one of which was also a high-profile family law firm.
Originally from Tulsa, she moved back to the area in 2014 and spent one year working for a local firm before joining Fry & Elder.
“I’m really impressed with the intensity and the desire to get better that I see out of the attorneys here,” Egan said. “I like working with the best and learning from them. I wanted to get back into family law, and I wanted to work with the people at the top of their game.”
