Amy Page expands Fry & Elder’s already-impressive practice area of Appeals. As a highly-regarded Oklahoma appellate attorney, Amy’s practice at Fry & Elder will focus on appellate-level litigation in family law cases, as well as child support (establishment, enforcement, and defense) and paternity/parentage issues. Amy’s experience in these areas is extensive, with sixteen years of practice in child support and parentage matters at every level of state court and over ten years of practice in family law appeals litigation.
Amy joins the firm after more than sixteen years as an attorney for the Child Support Services Division of Oklahoma’s DHS. While there, she litigated countless child support and parentage matters in administrative, district, and appellate courts statewide. In 2007, she became the Division’s Appellate Counsel, representing the Division in all of its appellate litigation. In addition to representing the Division in ongoing cases, Amy drafted numerous state statutes related to child support and parentage and drafted many of the Division’s subchapters of the Oklahoma Administrative Code. Amy also provided legal guidance, trial strategy and motion practice assistance, and legal research assistance for 75-plus State’s Attorneys within the Division. She also provided legal research and guidance for Division and agency leadership.
In addition to her prowess as a proven Oklahoma appellate attorney, Amy brings a wealth of experience as a public speaker on a variety of family law and litigation topics, including “The Litigator’s Guide to the Uniform Parentage Act,” “Standards of Review in Administrative Appeals,” and “The New Child Support Guidelines.” She has provided legal training within the CSS Division as well as numerous presentations to private attorneys in Oklahoma and at a national level.
Amy is an active member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, particularly the Family Law Section, where she has held numerous executive positions, include Chair of Continuing Legal Education (2008) and Chair of the Section (2009). She continues to serve as a member of the Executive Board, Annual Meeting Planning Committee, and Social Committee. She has been a mentor at the OBA FLS Trial Advocacy Institute and is the author of several chapters of the OBA FLS Practice Manual. Amy has also served two terms on the OBA’s Access to Justice Committee. She completed the OBA’s Leadership Academy in April 2010.
A native Oklahoman and third-generation Tulsan, Amy attended the University of Tulsa, receiving a B.A. in German in 1997 and a Juris Doctor in 2000. While in law school, she received the CALI© Excellence for the Future Awards for the highest grade in Criminal Law and Administration, Real Estate Transactions, and Advanced Legal Writing: Writing in Appellate Courts Seminar.
Amy is excited to join the team of established excellence and rising stars at Fry & Elder:
“The attorneys at Fry & Elder have consistently impressed me with their expertise, dedication, and professionalism. The firm’s focus on teamwork and cooperation among its attorneys virtually guarantees the excellence in client service that is so valuable to me professionally. I’m excited about the opportunity to bring my experience to that kind of team.”
