Protecting the Rights of Injury Victims

At Devinney Law Firm, P.C., our mission is simple: we are dedicated to protecting the rights of injured people and their families. If you have been injured at work, a loved one was killed in a car accident or your Social Security Disability claim was denied, we will work hard to help you obtain justice.

Our firm was founded in 2003 by Jim Devinney and Lee Turner. Together with associate Christopher W. Landes, our attorneys have more than 50 years of combined experience. As a full-service law firm, we represent people throughout northern Oklahoma in a wide range of legal practice areas.

A Full-Service Law Firm
Whether you have been injured or need legal counsel for another legal matter, we will do whatever it takes to help you protect your rights and interests. Look to us for experienced representation in comprehensive range of legal matters, including:

  • Workers’ compensation
  • Social Security Disability
  • Personal injury
  • Criminal law
  • Family law

Our Kay County attorneys have extensive trial experience, which gives us a significant advantage in all aspects of your case. Because our opponents know that we will not back down from a fight in the courtroom, we are often able to obtain reasonable settlements at the negotiation table. However, if your case calls for litigation, you can rely on us for skilled and aggressive representation. Additionally, we will never pass your case off to an assistant — the attorney you work with at the beginning of your case will be standing by your side throughout every step of the legal process.

Social Security Disability Lawyers

Social Security Disability benefits such as Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Supplemental Security Insurance (SSI) provide a monthly cash payment to people who are disabled and unable to work. Unfortunately, the Social Security Administration (SSA) denies more than 60 percent of initial claims. If you are in this difficult position, do not give up hope. Devinney Law Firm, P.C., is here to help.

With more than 50 years of combined experience, our lawyers are well equipped to help you navigate the complex appeals process.

SSDI Benefits Attorneys
Both SSDI and SSI require a claimant to meet the statutory definition of disability. To qualify for SSDI, you must also have worked and paid into the system for a certain period of time. Most SSI and SSDI claims are denied because the applicant did not provide sufficient documentation proving that he or she is totally disabled.

If your initial claim has been denied, you have 60 days from the date of the denial letter to file a written appeal with the SSA. Working with a lawyer to file your appeal can greatly increase the chances your claim will be accepted.

Our attorneys will review your claim and determine why it was denied. If you did not provide sufficient proof of your disability, we will work with your medical providers to ensure you have the appropriate documentation and medical records. We will represent you throughout every step of the appeals process, including reconsideration, hearing by an administrative law judge (ALJ), review by the appeals counsel and, if necessary, in federal court.

Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

If you have been injured at work, you are entitled to receive medical and financial benefits through workers’ compensation system. If your workers’ comp claim has been denied or you are not getting the medical care you need, Devinney Law Firm, P.C., will provide the aggressive legal advocacy you need.

Our workers’ compensation attorney Jim Devinney has settled more than 30,000 workers’ comp cases. He will help you take care of your medical needs and fight to ensure you get all of the benefits you are entitled to receive.

If you have been injured at work, first tell your employer. Then, call an experienced lawyer. To schedule a free consultation with attorney Devinney, call 580-765-9660 or contact us online.

Work Injury Attorneys
Under Oklahoma’s workers’ compensation laws, injured workers are entitled to medical treatment, temporary total disability benefits, temporary partial disability benefits, permanent partial disability benefits, permanent total disability benefits, ongoing medical maintenance and vocational rehabilitation. Additionally, death benefits are available for workers who have been killed on the job. However, some employers will go to great lengths to deny employees the benefits they need and deserve.

Whether you have suffered a traumatic injury in a car accident or a cumulative injury, our first concern is making sure you are receiving appropriate medical care. If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied or you are not receiving the compensation you deserve, we will fight for your rights. From the negotiation table to the negotiation table, you can count on us for vigorous representation.

If your workplace accident was caused by a person other than a co-worker, you may have a third-party personal injury claim in addition to your workers’ comp claim. We will complete a thorough evaluation of your case and help you pursue every available avenue of compensation.
