1. Saving a Family’s Home

A report from 5newsonline.com reveals the city of Poteau sought to demolish a family’s home, claiming it was a safety hazard.

By showing potential unjustified permanent harm, this skilled lawyer obtained a temporary restraining order, putting the demolition on hold. The mayor plans to make a personal inspection and withdraw the order to demolish if he finds the building complies with city codes.

2. Ensuring Seized Money Returned

attorneyTulsa World reports that more than $55,000 suspected to be drug money was seized from a group of Christian musicians traveling through the area. Thanks to Attorney Minks, the Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office returned the funds to the rightful owners, and the prosecutor dismissed the civil forfeiture proceeding.
