They returned to his home town of Claremore, where she joined the District Attorney’s office in 1999, handling Rogers County misdemeanor, felony, and juvenile cases.
In April 2003, she and Larry formed the Steidley Law Firm in Claremore, where she handled criminal defense, deprived and delinquent juvenile cases, and guardian ad litem appointments to domestic and guardianship cases. She has always had a special place in her heart for those who need an advocate for justice.
She has been Drug Court Coordinator for Mayes and Craig counties. The court works to rehabilitate certain offenders through intense treatment and supervision.
She also served as a part-time adjunct professor at both Rogers State University and Northeastern State University, teaching courses in Torts and Litigation, Criminal Law II and Criminal Evidence.
