About Coyle Law Firm

Well-Recognized Criminal Defense Practice In Oklahoma City

Founded in 1988 by John W. Coyle III, Coyle Law Firm has earned a strong nationwide reputation for effectiveness and accomplishments in criminal defense. Mr. Coyle and the firm have been repeatedly recognized by his peers, such as when:

  • He was the recipient of the Clarence Darrow Award as Oklahoma's Outstanding Criminal Defense Lawyer in 1995.
  • He received the Barry Albert Award from the Oklahoma County Criminal Defense Lawyers Association for Excellence in Advocacy in 2005.
  • He was listed in Best Lawyers in America from 1999 to present.
  • He was listed in the Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers in criminal trial practice.
  • He has been listed as a SuperLawyer for the last ten years.

It is fair to say he is one of just a few preeminent criminal defense lawyers in Oklahoma. Lawyers at other firms often consult with him when they are in search of referrals for the best counsel to assist clients elsewhere. John Coyle was later joined in this practice by his son, J. W. "Billy" Coyle IV. Billy has developed his own clientele, as has the third attorney at the firm, W. Brett Behenna.

Focused On Delivering Results

Coyle Law Firm has helped many clients avoid prison in criminal cases ranging from misdemeanors to serious felony cases. Our attorneys regularly take on high-stakes cases on matters including DUI, murder and white collar crimes. The firm has achieved favorable outcomes in white collar and multiple-count sexual assault cases. Clients of the firm with three or more prior convictions have received "not guilty" verdicts in jury trials.

Many law firms with the stature that Coyle Law Firm has attained delegate work to junior associates while the senior attorneys stay out of the actual work of defense. This is not the case at our firm. We are very hands-on in our approach. We deal with each case and each client on a personal level with the goal of achieving maximum results. We realize our reputation is on the line with every single case. Therefore we represent each individual and tackle each criminal matter as if it were our first, last and most important.
