Robert G Fry Jr. plays a little more golf, travels a bit more, and arrives at the office a little later these days, but the well-known Tulsa family law attorney continues to perform at a high level. In fact, the veteran attorney with more than 50 years experience still garners the highest accolades one can receive in his profession.
Best Lawyers® recently released its milestone 30th edition of The Best Lawyers in America® and not surprisingly Robert Fry was included among the best attorneys in America.
The selection of Fry for the 2024 edition of The Best Lawyers in America® marks the 14th consecutive year the distinguished attorney has been selected for inclusion by Best Lawyers®.
“It is a great honor that I certainly don’t take for granted, particularly at this time of my career,” Robert Fry Jr. said. “I have been very fortunate to have had the longevity that I have enjoyed over the years, but I remain very passionate. I really enjoy consulting with clients and working with our attorneys and legal personnel to provide the best course of action we can moving forward.”
A Dynamic Tulsa Family Law Attorney
Not surprisingly, Fry was listed in Best Lawyers® for his prowess in family law. Fry was named a Tier 1 attorney for family law. He was one of only seven Tulsa family law attorneys to make the list.
Robert Fry has racked up numerous awards and honors for his work in family law over the years. He was named Best Lawyers® Lawyer of the Year for Family Law in 2016. He is a Fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and a past president of the Oklahoma Chapter.
Fry also has been named to SuperLawyers® multiple times and also carries an AV Preeminent rating by Martindale-Hubble, which is the highest recognition possible in the legal industry for professionalism and ethics.
“He’s just one of a kind,” longtime partner James Elder said. “I marvel at his energy and longevity. Most people don’t enjoy stress, but he thrives on it.”
The Methodology Behind Best Lawyers® Selection Process
Best Lawyers® is widely viewed as the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession.
Much of this has to do with the rigorous selection process Best Lawyers® employs. Lawyers are not permitted to pay any fee to participate in or be recognized by Best Lawyers.
Simply put: one cannot just be named one of the best attorneys in America.
As the website states:
“Recognition by Best Lawyers® is based entirely on peer review. Our methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.
“Best Lawyers employs a sophisticated, conscientious, rational, and transparent survey process designed to elicit meaningful and substantive evaluations of the quality of legal services. Our belief has always been that the quality of a peer-review survey is directly related to the quality of the voters.
“Inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® is based on a comprehensive peer-review survey, which this year, comprised of more than 13.7 million confidential evaluations from your peers. This year alone, almost 25,000 voters responded to our survey. Our purely peer review methodology is at the core of our company’s credo, as we truly believe the best lawyers know who the best lawyers are.”
Although Fry is not in the office as frequently as he once was, the venerable attorney still makes it a point to stop by the Fry & Elder offices at 1630 S. Main Street in Tulsa every day, and, of course, Fry makes it a priority to promptly reply to any message he receives from a client.
“That’s the only way I know how to operate,” Robert Fry Jr. said.
