Michael Bargas

Associate Attorney

Oklahoma City divorce lawyer Michael BargasOklahoma City divorce lawyer Michael Bargas knew he wanted to do three things when he decided to become an attorney: Make a difference, be in a courtroom rather than behind a desk, and help real people resolve real problems.

“I found that practicing family law allowed me to do all three of them,” Mr. Bargas said.

Throughout just about every family law case, there are often unpleasant events and circumstances that unexpectedly arise. Those events can often lead a case down a path that can become a costly hindrance to the client’s ultimate goal.

“I believe that one of my best traits as a family law attorney is my ability to see and remain focused on the bigger picture, while still taking care of the bumps in the road along the way,” Mr. Bargas said.

While he can’t guarantee that the process will ever be easy, Mr. Bargas does assure each of his clients that he will do whatever he can to help them reach their goals in court.

“The wheels of the court always seem to turn much slower than one thinks they should,” Mr. Bargas said. “Just know that you are in good hands with me, and I will get behind the bus and push if it will help your case.”
