Additional Information: Mr. Capron received his undergraduate degree in Psychology with honors from the University of California at Santa Barbara, and received his Juris Doctorate degree with highest honors from the University of Oklahoma. He is a member of the Phi Delta Phi Legal Fraternity, the Order of the Coif and is a former editor of the Oklahoma Law Review.
Early in his career, Mr. Capron discovered a "knack" for trial work. Rejecting much of the advice of the so called "experts," Capron opted for, what he considers, a more honest and candid approach to trial work. "First you have to recognize that jurors are just people. If you can talk to them like people and stop trying to deceive them with the latest trial gimmick you read about in some journal, you are two steps ahead of the game."
This approach to trial work has proved very successful. Mr. Capron has achieved substantial success in defending a variety of cases, and has obtained verdicts totaling more than fifty million dollars in cases in which he has represented plaintiffs.
Unlike many trial lawyers, Mr. Capron has extensive experience as an appellate practitioner at both the state and federal levels. Mr. Capronís appellate practice includes both bringing and defending appeals, as well as seeking extraordinary writs from the Supreme Court of Oklahoma. On multiple occasions, Mr. Capron has successfully engaged in oral arguments before the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
Mr. Capron has published articles and taught seminars on a variety of topics involving nursing home litigation, tort reform, insurance bad faith, and pharmaceutical manufacturer liability under Oklahoma state law. Mr. Capron has a broad civil practice which includes personal involvement at all stages of the case from first contact through the appeal process.
