Tracy A. Cinocca P.C. is proud to bring you, the first Oklahoma Attorney Divorce Fee Calculator! We have developed this calculator as a public service to help individuals acquire a better understanding of the factors that can increase the cost of divorce. Like most attorneys, we make no guarantees; however we hope that this calculator can educate you about: 1. The possible cost of a divorce in Tulsa and Oklahoma Counties; and most importantly, 2. Factors that can increase the cost of your divorce. Costs for attorneys vary depending on billing practices and procedures, use of legal assistants or other personnel at lower rates, and the rate of the attorney versus that law firm’s efficiency. Rates are typically lower in smaller counties and towns than Oklahoma City and Tulsa, when you choose local counsel. We hope that this tool can help expectations and management in your divorce. Before you press …Continue reading →
In almost two decades of questions from the public at large, I have determined the top five issues people have that compel them to contact an attorney, & created a video for each. 5. Injuries. The public at large is concerned as it should be about what to do if injured. The answer to this question varies greatly depending on the facts and circumstances of your injury. We created a general video to talk about the large umbrella called “tort” law. What might be a tort and what may not be a tort? Could you have a claim? We recommend before contacting an attorney, if you are unsure, think about safety. Did someone fail to keep premises safe? You may already know the area of tort such as an automobile accident or a slip and fall. But what about a child who jumps on an oil rig and his leg …Continue reading →
May 1st is National Law Day! This year’s Law Day which was Sunday, May 1, was extra special. This is because it is also the 50th anniversary of the landmark 1966 decision of Miranda v. Arizona, 384 U.S. 436 (1966). This case marks the beginning of Miranda rights required to be stated to a person under arrest. This includes rights protected by the 5th Amendment. This includes the right to remain silent; that statements by the suspect may be used in court; that the suspect may consult with a lawyer during interrogation; and that a lawyer will be provided, if the suspect cannot afford one. The Miranda rule helps balance police interrogation with an individuals rights. However, so many of us allow our individual rights to be usurped when we believe we have nothing to hide. In speaking to the police anything you say will be used against you. Nothing you say …Continue reading →

The first video I made several years ago is called “How to Choose A Lawyer.” Here is what I said which still applies. First, you want to make sure that your attorney is qualified. Second, you want to see if you like the attorney’s personality and if you think they’re a good match for you. Third, you want to look at their business practices and procedures. Fourth, you want to have a feeling you can trust your attorney to do the right thing for you when you aren’t there. ARE THEY QUALIFIED? Choosing a lawyer can be a difficult and maybe overwhelming experience. There are so many choices and so many options. Of course you want your attorney to be qualified. You need to have an attorney who is qualified in the area of law, that your issue is in. Try to know and try to understand what area of law it is …Continue reading →
