The Oklahoma law firm of Fry & Elder enjoyed one of its most memorable weeks in firm history this past week. The firm moved into its new Tulsa office at 1616 S. Main Street and was named to the U.S. News & World Report’s Best Law Firms list for a fifth consecutive year before the week culminated with Fry & Elder partners M. Shane Henry and Aaron D. Bundy receiving the 2017 Earl Sneed Award for their significant contributions in Continuing Legal Education during the general assembly of the Oklahoma Bar Association Annual Meeting.
Not to be outdone by last week’s dynamic set of events was Amy Page’s acceptance of two leadership positions during the OBA Annual Meeting Family Law Section day. The experienced Oklahoma child support attorney was formally announced as the 2018 Tulsa County Bar Association Family FLS Chair in 2018, and the 2018 and 2019 OBA FLS CLE Chair.
“I have always believed in the importance of being able to give back to the Tulsa and Oklahoma legal community,” Page said. “There have been numerous attorneys, judges and other legal personnel who have helped me throughout my legal career when they certainly had no obligation to do so. I am very grateful to them. One of the things that really influenced my decision to join Fry & Elder (in February of 2017) was the firm and its attorneys commitment to continuing legal education and professional development.”
Oklahoma Child Support Attorney Page Gained Experience with DHS
Before joining Fry & Elder, Page worked as an attorney with the Child Support Services Division of Oklahoma’s DHS. While with DHS, Page gained valuable insight and experience into child support (establishment, enforcement, and defense) and paternity/parentage issues. It was during her tenure at DHS when Page held her first OBA leadership position. The experienced Oklahoma child support attorney also served as the OBA FLS CLE Chair in both 2008 and 2009.
“I definitely believe that I learned a lot during those two years,” Page said. “I don’t think there’s any doubt that it will help me be more efficient and effective this time around (as OBA FLS CLE Chair).”
Leadership Positions Nothing New for Fry & Elder Attorneys
Page is just the latest in a long line of Fry & Elder trial lawyers to tackle a leadership position with the OBA and TCBA.
Fry & Elder Oklahoma City divorce attorney Allyson Dow is the current OBA FLS Chair and third attorney from the vaunted Oklahoma law firm to hold the post in the past four years, following Henry (2014) and T. Luke Barteaux (2016). Dow, who also is one of five Fry & Elder attorneys to garner Super Lawyers® accolades, was in charge of the FLS day during the OBA Annual Meeting this past week. Several attorneys and personnel with the firm also have been active in the further development of the OBA FLS TAI.
