An Oklahoma City criminal defense firm providing personal, conscientious, and compassionate representation to all our clients and their families.

It is important to hire knowledgable and skilled attorneys who will respond to the client’s needs.  At the Blau Law Firm, we will always return phone calls, meet with family members, visit clients in custody, and help answer every question.  Our goal is to make each of our clients feel that they can contact us, day or night, and that they are fully and completely informed of everything about their case.  We ensure that each client walks away feeling like he or she was taken care of in the best possible way.

Your case is likely the most important thing in your life.  We work closely with our clients to give them the high-level service and knowledgable representation they need.  The Firm’s size allows it to give each client individualized attention from a team of uniquely creative and skilled legal counsel.  We pride ourselves on achieving rare results.

The Firm was founded on the principle that a boutique litigation practice is capable of providing the best legal representation in court at any time.  Will you pay more for the firm to represent you?  Of course.  But it comes back to the fundamental question of how important it is to win your case.  While our rates are competitive for the level of service we provide, it is a fact that the highest quality representation takes time, commitment, and passion.

It’s your future. It’s your freedom. Contact us.

Dustin Hopson

Experience
Dustin is an experienced litigation attorney, specializing in civil rights, employment law, tort litigation, and criminal law, having practiced in the state and federal courts of Oklahoma and Texas for fourteen years. A graduate of Westmoore High School in South Oklahoma City, he first attended the University of Oklahoma and later the Texas Tech University School of Law, where he was a decorated member of the Board of Barristers. While there, he participated in the school’s criminal justice clinic, involving the prosecution of criminal cases in association with the Lubbock County District Attorney’s office. It was then that he first became exposed to the complications and requirements placed upon those faced with charges within the criminal justice system, and the needs of criminal defendants in navigating that system. Upon graduation, he returned home to Oklahoma, where he has gained extensive experience handling claims, from beginning through trial, featuring allegations of excessive force, violations of free speech, unreasonable searches and seizures, and other rights guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States
