Hi. My name is Joseph Norwood. I started the Norwood Law firm to with a mission to provide access to legal services equally and fairly throughout Tulsa, Oklahoma and the surrounding areas. Since I started practicing law, I have had the honor to meet and work with a cross-section of the fine citizens of Oklahoma. My legal practice areas focus on Personal Injury, Criminal Defense, Bank Misconduct, Insurance Law and Civil Rights.
Oklahoma Trial Attorney / Personal Injury / Civil Litigation
At my office, clients trust me, with a wide variety of their very personal and confidential legal issues. I handle different types of personal injury cases, including car crashes, bank institution misconduct, wrongful death and insurance disputes. While representing clients in personal injury / civil litigation cases I always keep in mind the dramatic financial and emotional toll the situation has on the client. I also provide a wealth of resources, including investigation, medical / doctor referrals and expert retention, in the event client’s situations requires outside assistance.
Through the many years I have represented people and businesses in personal injury and civil litigation cases I have recovered hundreds of thousands of dollars for my clients. When defending clients and businesses in civil litigation and personal injury cases I have saved them from having to pay hundreds of thousands of dollars. Contact me for a free consultation.
My office, also handles a range of criminal law matters for my clients throughout Tulsa and northeast Oklahoma areas. Oklahoma criminal law statutes are designed to protect the citizens of Oklahoma from dangerous people. As a criminal defense attorney it is my job to protect people accused of criminal offenses from overzealous prosecution while securing acquittals, deferred sentences, and minimizing sentences in cases involving plea-bargains and convictions.

Criminal charges have the potential to affect people for the rest of their lives. In an effort to develop a legal strategy based on the unique circumstances of my client’s case and situation, I strive to build relationships based on trust and respect with the people throughout the criminal justice system. For people facing criminal charges it is not only their freedom that is under assault it is their dignity. I work with adults and juveniles charged with a host of misdemeanors and felonies including drug offenses, DUI (driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs) assault and battery, murder and manslaughter and white collar crimes.
I believe that part of representing a client in a criminal case is offering representation on issues stemming from the original arrest, including civil rights violations and bail bond reduction hearings. In most Oklahoma criminal cases the legal work begins prior to your hiring a lawyer. Typically, once you have been arrested the state considers you guilty and they have vast resources available to prove their case. I limit the number of cases I handle so I can concentrate my time and resources on achieving quality outcomes for my clients.
I work closely with each client and spend time working through the issues associated with their case. Many people facing criminal charges should not be charged with felonies involving significant fines and jail time. And many others who commit mere minor offenses are charged with felonies. I believe that every client deserves a zealous defense to assure that no one falls through the cracks. Contact me for a free criminal defense consultation. Or call me at 918-582-6464.
