As the chief appellate lawyer for the State of Oklahoma, the Solicitor General leads the Federalism Unit and supervises appellate litigation on behalf of the Office of the Attorney General. The Federalism Unit directly handles those appeals determined to be most significant to Oklahoma and to the development of federal and state jurisprudence and appears on occasion in federal and state trial courts on matters implicating the state's most critical interests.
In addition, the Federalism Unit regularly authors amicus curiae briefs for submission to the U.S. Supreme Court and other courts across the nation.
The Solicitor General also serves as a top legal adviser to the attorney general and advises other agency lawyers and state officials on complex constitutional and other legal matters.
