Douglas L. Parr, A Fighter In And Out Of The Courtroom
I founded The Law Office of Douglas Parr more than 40 years ago. The kind of work that initially drew me to the legal profession involved political defense, civil disobedience and defending the rights of political activists. In 1976, I helped establish a legal clinic at the Native American Center in Oklahoma City, which allowed me to travel all over Oklahoma addressing a wide range of legal issues. That experience, combined with my criminal defense work, is what led me to focus a significant part of my practice on constitutional rights violations.

Defending Your Constitutional Rights
I continue to operate as a solo practitioner because it allows me to provide each client with the attention he or she deserves. Every client works directly with me, not with an associate or a junior partner. I take the time to explain your legal options, including the advantages and potential pitfalls that you may face. By remaining committed to educating my clients, I am able to provide them with the information they need to make informed legal decisions.
My reputation as a fighter in the courtroom who regularly handles extremely difficult cases is both strengthened and tempered by the fact that I am thorough in my work and selective in my caseload. My peers recognize that I address serious legal issues that need more than a resolution – they need strong, aggressive, determined and zealous representation.
Respect, Skill And Knowledge
With more than 40 years of experience as a practicing attorney, I have earned the respect and recognition of my peers for my skill and knowledge in constitutional issues, particularly those involving drug dogs, search and seizure, highway drug interdiction, asset forfeiture, jury selection and police misconduct. A few of the honors and awards I have received include:
- 1980 to present – Cooperating attorney with the Center for Constitutional Rights in New York City
- 1983 – Received recognition for “Outstanding Accomplishments in Criminal Defense” from the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (OCDLA)
- 3 time past President of the Oklahoma Criminal Defense Lawyers Association (OCDLA)
- 2008 to 2011; 2019 to 2020 – Selected for inclusion in Oklahoma Super Lawyers
- 2013 recipient Barry Albert Award for Excellence in Advocacy from the Oklahoma County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association
- Since 2017, a cooperating attorney with The Innocence Project
When you consult with me, you will immediately notice the difference that I can make in your case. I actively listen to all my clients before making my recommendations. If I take your case, I will move swiftly to protect your rights and find an effective solution for your legal matter. When a legal problem threatens your future, you deserve to work with an attorney who will not stop until he gets the best result for your situation.
