About Grayson Van Horn
Experience, integrity, attentiveness.
My strengths are extensive experience, honesty, and constant communication with the client.
Lack of communication is one of the biggest failures of many attorneys, who often delegate cases to paralegals or subordinates. In contrast, I serve my clients directly—from our first phone call until your needs are resolved.
I have been a solo practitioner of law for over 25 years in the Oklahoma City and Edmond areas, and I have over 40 years of experience as an attorney.
Prior to establishing my independent practice, I worked at a globally recognized law firm (Vinson & Elkins), served as a Judge Advocate and Military Judge in the United States Air Force, was employed as an Assistant Attorney General of the State of Oklahoma, and served as an administrative Law Judge for the Oklahoma Department of Labor.

Law is more than a job for me. I believe that others should be justly and fairly treated, and that when people are wronged, they deserve a way to make it right.
I enjoy passing along the knowledge I've gained through my practice to others, and I've enjoyed opportunities to do so as an Adjunct Professor at Oklahoma City University and the University of Central Oklahoma.
On a personal level, I believe that one's family and one's faith provides the foundation for one's character and conduct. I've been married for fifty years to my lovely wife, with whom I have three sons and five beautiful (and very active) grandchildren.
