BJ graduated from TU Law School in 2008 where he was involved in the Native American Law Student Association and was the CALI Award Winner in Advanced Legal Writing. He went to work out of law school with the District 27 District Attorneys Office in Wagoner. While in Wagoner, BJ worked on the Child Abuse Task Force, the Domestic Violence Coordinated Community Response Team and got his first jury trial experience. From Wagoner, he was transferred within the district to Stilwell for about a year, then to Tahlequah. While in the Tahlequah District Attorney’s Office, BJ worked on the Child Abuse Task Force prior to taking on his role as the attorney-adviser to the Drug Task Force in Cherokee County. In addition to prosecuting all drug crimes in Cherokee County during the height of shake and bake meth labs, he was also traveling the four-county district to handle any and all DUI’s within the district that we're going to trial.
BJ opened his private office in 2013 and has been in private practice ever since. He has extensive knowledge and experience doing jury trials on DUI, domestics, child abuse, sex crimes, drug crimes, weapons crimes, and murder. He had the honor and privilege to work his early years of private practice under the guidance of mentor attorneys Tim K. Baker, Donn F. Baker, and Rex Earl Starr who were all available with their priceless advice and direction.
