A contemporary firm from the beginning.
Founded in Indian Territory in 1896, our law firm predates statehood by more than a decade – and from the beginning, Doerner lawyers were leaders who were helping to shape our region. The role that our rich history plays in today’s contemporary society and business world is evident in the depth of experience and get-it-done attitude that every lawyer brings to the table. We have always had the vision and know-how to make things happen for our clients.
Doerner lawyers build on the foundation of strong client relationships established by our predecessors. We have represented many clients for decades, helping them grow, survive economic and other hardships, and thrive during boom times regardless of where their business interests take them. Throughout our history, we have been servant leaders. For many years, Doerner lawyers have been tapped for high profile appointments in regional and national government agencies, many to later become judges, serve in a governmental capacity or take top representative positions in major businesses and industries. A service ethic permeates our firm today and is evidenced by our lawyers’ passionate commitment to civic and charitable boards and organizations.
Doerner was selected to be a member of Meritas, a global alliance of independent, full-service law firms. The alliance provides clients the ability to connect to the best local counsel possible, whether in the United States or abroad. Selection to participate as a Meritas affiliate does not come easy, as the organization only invites its members to join after a rigorous evaluation of the firm's high standards of quality and excellence. We are proud to have met Meritas’ exceptional qualifications and serve as one of the two Meritas affiliates in Oklahoma.
