Committed to Employment and Civil Litigation
Associate Attorney Brooke Ballard represents individuals and businesses in employment matters and a wide range of civil litigation matters. She was raised in Duncan, Oklahoma, and currently lives in Oklahoma City. Brooke joined Mazaheri Law Firm in 2018 and has since worked hard to protect the livelihood of her clients by helping in any way that she can, including waiving the initial consultation fee if a fee agreement is signed the same day.
Brooke’s diligence during law school is unmistakable, serving as Managing Editor of the Oklahoma City University Law Review while studying at Oklahoma City University School of Law. She graduated cum laude and received the CALI Award of Excellence in Legal Research and Writing II. She was selected as a Dean’s Pro Bono and Public Interest Law Fellow and was a Merit Scholar. She was a member of the Phi Delta Phi International Legal Honor Society and Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society. She also won the Judge Alfred P. Murrah Sr. Award for Outstanding Academic Performance and the Outstanding Case Comment Award for her comment titled Moore v. Warr Acres: Expansion of Oklahoma’s Public Policy Exception to the At-Will Employment Doctrine, published in the Oklahoma City University Law Review in 2017.
While pursuing her law degree, Brooke has proven herself to be hardworking in serving as legal research assistant to Oklahoma City University president and former judge for U.S. Court of Appeals 10th Circuit Robert H. Henry, and as a judicial intern for the Honorable Shon T. Erwin at the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma. Her experience working for the Oklahoma Innocence Project in Oklahoma City opened her eyes to the many injustices that can occur in our legal system when a client does not have proper representation.
Humbled to Assist Hard Working Oklahomans Protect Their Rights
Her passion for pursuing justice pushed her to become a first-generation attorney. Her mother is a registered nurse and formerly worked for the Duncan Banner, and her grandparents were a farmer and a printing press operator for the Lawton Constitution. As a testament to her humble roots and time spent in the newspaper world, she has a high respect for truth and honesty, in print and in life. A commitment to giving straightforward advice and being approachable is something that she embodies and respects with her clients.
