Robert G Fry Jr. is showing no signs of slowing down. Although the popular Tulsa divorce and child custody attorney no longer handles the day-to-day operations he once did at Fry & Elder, Robert G Fry Jr. continues to operate his legal practice at a very high level.
So high in fact, that the popular Tulsa divorce and child custody attorney was selected by Best Lawyers® for inclusion in its 2022 directory. This year’s selection marks the 12th consecutive year that Fry Jr. has been selected, which exceeds that of many other family law attorneys in the Tulsa area.
“He’s a machine,” Fry & Elder managing attorney Simon Harwood said. “It’s really an honor to work with him and be under his tutelage. The fact that he continues to operate and work at such a high level after 50 years really speaks volumes about the passion he has for his clients and the legal process in general. I’ve learned quite a lot from him”
Fry’s passion for his work has been well documented and has not gone unnoticed for some time. He was proactive in embracing and advancing the changes in child support guidelines in the 1980s, which drew national attention.
He was interviewed on CBS The Early Show in a divorce series entitled, “What About the Kids?”
Still, that Fry has been listed by The Best Lawyers in America© every year since 2011 is no small feat. The publication 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. 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.”
Even though this year’s selection marks the 12th consecutive year Fry has been tabbed by Best Lawyers® for his family law prowess in the Tulsa area, Fry remains very thankful for honors such as these and doesn’t take anything for granted
“It’s a tremendous honor for me to be recognized by peers,” Fry said. “Best Lawyers® has such a good reputation in our legal industry, and deservedly so. They’ve done an excellent job of reporting on and evaluating our industry trends over the years.”
