Tulsa Divorce Attorney Colby Pearce

Prior to exclusively practicing family law, Tulsa divorce attorney Colby C. Pearce spent a large portion of his career defending large insurance companies and corporations in civil lawsuits, but he didn’t feel he was making a positive impact in the lives of everyday people. That’s why he made the switch to family law.

“The practice of family law allows me to connect with individual clients on a personal level while also guiding them through one of the most difficult times in their lives,” Mr. Pearce said.

By nature, Mr. Pearce is a very honest person, and he feels this carries over into the way he practices law.

“I feel this allows me to gain the rapport of others, including judges and other professionals in the legal community, which, in turn, can have a positive outcome in my client’s case,” he said.

Mr. Pearce urges his clients to remain patient and to stay focused on the objectives in the case. Unfortunately, the judicial process is not always as fast as one might prefer. Sometimes, delays occur which are outside of anyone’s control, which can be frustrating for those who have never experienced the legal process in action.

“With a little patience and understanding, my clients and I will get through this process together and I will work to achieve the most beneficial outcome for my client,” he said.
