Serving Our Community for a Better Tomorrow

Misty Fields is dedicated to improving District 12.  In addition to her work as an indigent defense attorney, she volunteers her services as an accredited CLEET instructor to provide continuing legal education to local law enforcement. Misty also donates her time through Legal Aid Services of Oklahoma to give pro bono legal representation for under privileged families in District 12

Working Hard for What is Right Not What is Easy

Misty Fields is self-made.  She did not come from wealth, privilege or power. Misty’s family was not able to give her material things or money.  Instead, her parents instilled within her determination, fortitude and a strong work ethic.  Misty works hard everyday and has since she made the decision to put herself through law school as a single mother.

Standing Her Ground for Justice

Misty Fields does not back down from a challenge.  She is a passionate advocate for the Constitutions of the United States and the State of Oklahoma. Misty has successfully challenged unconstitutional laws in Oklahoma and ultimately forced their repeal. She has also challenged the local powers that be in her continuing battle to uphold the Oklahoma and United States Constitutions.

Judge Gary J Dean

I have practiced law in Pryor (Creek), Oklahoma, since graduation from the Oklahoma University College of Law, and remain in my active law practice. I served as a District Court Judge serving Mayes, Rogers, and Craig Counties until my retirement in 2010. Since my retirement I have served as a Mediator, and engaged in the private practice of law. My wife Tracey, and I have both been very active in civic affairs all of our lives. I had to cut back on this activity while on the bench. Tracey is very active in Rotary, and has served as an Assistant District Governor in Rotary International District 6110, and is a Past President of our Pryor club. We are both Rotary Paul Harris Foundation Fellows. I started this Blog because of serious wrongdoing in the community which I see. I would have had to keep quiet on these matters while a Judge. The purpose of these sites is to provide information on my law practice, and provide a forum for discussion of community issues. Comments on my blog will remain uncensored, and unedited, except for unreasonably improper language. Your comments and suggestions are welcome. I sincerely hope all enjoy visiting this blog, and that it will provide a good forum for community issues.
