"As a Christian family law attorney, I resolve to help clients transition through events in their lives with a minimum of emotional, psychological, and financial trauma. I will act through Christ, in deed and in truth, personally and professionally, to help assure our civic rights to further the gospel." -Noel Tucker
Noel recognizes that clients experiencing divorce are fundamentally good people who are temporarily in a bad situation and likely making poor choices. The poor choices are typically a result of stress, fear, pain and emotional fatigue. Her goal is to empower the client with education and confidence to make smart choices throughout the process and consider a holistic approach to a divorce. Why? Because there is more to life than dividing up personal property and extracting a “pound of flesh” from the opposing party. The reality is there will be some measure of interaction required post divorce, especially if children are involved.
Guardian Ad Litem representation is another aspect of family law in which Noel has been passionate about long before she had her full license to practice. As an intern at Oklahoma City University School of Law, Noel published a national Guardian Ad Litem survey that resulted in her being instrumental in passing Guardian Ad Litem legislation. At the time, there was no legal authority in the state of Oklahoma for Guardian Ad Litem representation. As a legal intern, practicing with, Phil Tucker, who was appointed in the precedent setting case of
Kahre v. Kahre, Noel’s research was instrumental in furthering the appeal and area of law. These efforts also resulted in the Oklahoma Bar Association Family Law Section creating “The Tucker Award,” an award which is given to one attorney each year for his or her outstanding Guardian Ad Litem work throughout the year.
