Rex Travis has practiced insurance law for over 50 years. He spent his first 20 years of practice on the defense side, so he knows how they operate. Margaret Travis has practiced almost 30 years. She recently rejoined Travis Law Office’s practice, bringing her Bankruptcy Law practice (Chapter 7 and Chapter 13) under our roof.
Rex Travis taught Insurance Law and Conflicts of Law for more than 20 years. Rex and Margaret regularly present continuing legal education (CLE) seminars on insurance law to fellow attorneys. Both regularly answer questions on the Oklahoma Association for Justice Civil listserv.
We update you on your case, provide copies of everything, and answer your questions. That way you always know your case status. We base our decisions in every case on our client’s—your—best interests. See “What to Expect During Your Case” for more.
We fight for your rights! Though many cases settle before trial, we do not accept a case unless we are willing to take it to trial. Consequently, we prepare every case as though it will go to trial. As a result, we are always ready when a case goes to trial. Also, unlike many firms, our contract obligates us to appeal your case, where the case warrants appeal.
To make a recovery for you in virtually every personal injury case, your attorney must understand insurance law. Where the defendant has no insurance coverage, you can “win,” but still not get any money to pay your bills. Similarly, if the defendant has insufficient coverage, you can “win” and not make a recovery, or make an insufficient recovery. We know where to look for every possible source of recovery (insurance) that may apply to your case. In short, we know how to get the maximum amount possible out of your claim and out of your award.
Travis Law Office handles most insurance claim denials or personal injury claims.
Through Margaret Travis, we now also handle both Chapter 13 and Chapter 7 Bankruptcy proceedings. Please see our Practice Areas for the specifics.
We answer this question in our article, “7 Steps to Protect Your Rights After a Wreck.”
After a collision, focus first on getting well. We recommend getting the treatment you need to recover and get back to the life you had before the wreck.
You can probably resolve your property damage without needing to hire a lawyer. We address this subject at length in our article, “Settle Your Property Damage After a Wreck.”
When you call Travis Law Office, our knowledgeable and experienced attorneys provide a free, initial consultation. In that consultation, we ask for the facts of your claim. We need to determine who caused the incident (“liability”), evaluate your losses (“damages”) and much more. We evaluate your claim based on these and other factors and tell you if we think you have a viable case. If we do not think you have a good case, we tell you why not. If we believe you have a viable claim outside our practice, we refer you to a reputable attorney practicing in that area.
Absolutely. Attorney-client privilege protects your information, even if we do not take your case. We even get your permission before we discuss your case with another attorney if your claim falls outside our practice.
Generally, a two-year statute of limitations applies to personal injury claims in Oklahoma. However, different statutes of limitation apply to different types of claims, both less than two years (assault claims and claims against government agencies, for example) and more (uninsured and underinsured motorists claims). If you do not resolve your claim, you must file a lawsuit within the applicable statute of limitation. If you fail to file a lawsuit in time, Oklahoma law forever bars your claim.
A knowledgeable attorney looks for every statute of limitation or other time limitation that may apply to your claim. This ensures you don’t miss a statute of limitation and your claim can proceed. In short, call an experienced attorney as soon as possible after an injury or unpaid insurance claim. Make sure to protect your rights and ensure your case may proceed.
In short, yes. Oklahoma has a law requiring all drivers to have liability insurance (compulsory minimum insurance law). But many drivers do not comply. If you have an injury from a wreck, contact an experienced attorney to protect your rights.
Our experienced team of attorneys and legal assistants works hard to get you the maximum recovery possible in your case. Learn what to expect and what we need from you in our article, “What to Expect During Your Case.”
Absolutely not. Ever.
Travis Law Office handles injury claims on a “contingent” basis. This means you don’t pay a retainer or hourly fees when we agree to represent you. As our fee, we take a percentage of the final recovery. We explain our fee and expenses fully in our initial meeting with you. If you don’t make a recovery, you don’t owe us any fees or expenses.
To get an idea of the number and types of cases we have handled, look up Rex Travis on OSCN. (Note: only lists cases filed after a certain date, so does not list all cases for Rex Travis.)
Travis Law Office cannot guarantee to resolve your case favorably. Because the facts of a claim determine its merits, most cases cannot be compared. However, the vast majority of our cases result in favorable recoveries for our clients.
Everyone on Travis Law Office’s team works to help our clients resolve their cases. We have 3 lawyers, 3 legal assistants, and other staff ready to serve you. Travis Law Office is small enough to know you and the details of your case, and big enough to get results!
