Daman Cantrell District Judge

Northeastern Oklahoma is a remarkable place to live, an exceptional place to work, and an ideal area in which to raise a family.

It has been my honor to have spent over 25 years serving the people of Oklahoma as an Assistant Attorney General, a law clerk to a federal judge, an Assistant Public Defender for Oklahoma and Tulsa Counties, a Special District Judge, and finally as District Judge for the 14th Judicial District of Oklahoma, serving Tulsa and Pawnee Counties.
