Clients I'm Seeking:


I'm seeking clients who are looking for an attorney to appeal their civil cases to an appellate court and clients who are looking for an attorney to handle their personal injury, business, and insurance cases. I also wrote the Oklahoma Supreme Court's main opinion concerning class certification in class actions while a staff lawyer at the Court, KMC Leasing, Inc. et al. v. Rockwell-Standard Corp., et al., 2000 OK 51, 9 P.3d 683, and enjoy handling class actions, either as lead or as local counsel. I have served as co-counsel in several oil and gas class actions and am available to handle any type of civil class action.

About My Business:


I have a unique perspective on civil trials, class actions, and appeals, gleaned from over 26 years of experience as a federal law clerk, Oklahoma Supreme Court staff lawyer, and civil litigator. One of the cases that I tried in 2006 in the District Court of Oklahoma County resulted in an $18 million verdict for my clients, which ultimately was upheld on appeal to the Oklahoma Supreme Court and to the U.S. Supreme Court. Shortly after that trial, I obtained a defense verdict for a corporate client in a negligence (personal injury) case, tried in the District Court of Oklahoma County. I am a graduate of the University of Oklahoma and hold a B.A. in Letters, Summa Cum Laude, Phi Beta Kappa. My senior year at OU, I was awarded the Silver Letzeiser Medal for Outstanding Senior and was a Rhodes Scholarship Gulf Region Finalist. A third generation graduate of the OU College of Law, I hold the highest rating, AV, by the Martindale-Hubbell National Lawyer Database. I am licensed to practice in Oklahoma and Texas and am admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, and the U. S. District Courts for the Western, Northern, and Eastern Districts of Oklahoma. My articles have been published in The Federal Lawyer and the American Bar Association’s Tort Trial & Insurance Practice Law Journal. I would appreciate referrals in the areas of appeals (state and federal), class actions (as local counsel or lead counsel), and civil litigation. I am currently expanding my appellate and class action practices. Sarah Lee Gossett Parrish, Esq. State and Federal Appeals; Litigation; Insurance Coverage Of Counsel, Derryberry & Naifeh LLP 4800 N.
