Practice Areas

Protecting the civil rights and liberties of families throughout each area of our practice.

Administrative Law

Administrative law is perhaps one of the most important areas of our practice in terms of the social impact it can have on our clients.  Our attorneys are deeply educated on not only the history of this branch of law, but also the latest developments and court decisions, in order to ensure our clients are treated fairly and justly by the systems that govern them.  It is one of the more powerful ways we can live out our firm’s core value of defending the interests of individuals and families in our community, whether that be through helping you defend your unemployment claim or arguing that an abuse of an agency’s power has taken place.

Cannabis law

Despite only having legalized marijuana in 2018, Oklahoma has quickly risen to be one of the nation’s leaders in the medical marijuana industry.  As a result, we have seen an influx of entrepreneurs who want to get in on the ground floor of this relatively new industry and establish their business, but who don’t fully grasp the complexity of the overlapping local, state, and federal laws that govern the industry.  Our team is here to help you cut through the red tape and understand exactly what laws will affect the location in which you wish to start your business, allowing you to focus on your business without fear of legal repercussions.

Civil & business litigation

Being charged with a crime does not define you; neither is it an automatic assurance of a negative outcome in court. Regardless of the circumstances behind your case, you can look to us for a personalized and respectful defense aimed at protecting your rights and telling your side of the story. Our goal is to provide you with an honest look at your situation to allow you to understand the options that are available to you and help you feel more confident about your defense and your future.

Estate Planning

Aging, injury, incapacity and death are all tough subjects that we prefer to avoid, but the fallout that can occur if plans are not put in place can be far more damaging than the pain of having the hard discussions.  In these situations, it’s natural to want to rush through the conversation or make decisions based on emotion; it’s part of being human.  However, in order to make the decisions that are best for your family and your legacy, you need to take the time to think through each action and plan for the future.  Let us help you with the legal nuances and work with you to create a plan that ensures your family’s well-being will be protected in the event of a tragedy.

We are here to help remove the confusion that often surrounds the legal process and ensure that the welfare of your family is represented in court.

For an educated, no nonsense lawyer who will fight for you and win for you, call Rachel! She was well prepared and made even our small legal issue a priority! Highly recommend!

I could not have been more satisfied with the professional service I received. Every single individual that I had contact with throughout my custody issue went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable, confident and appreciated. This quality is what set the Bussett Legal Group heads and shoulders above other attorneys I had dealt with in the past.

Rachel is by far one of the best attorney's in OKC area. She helped with my wife's case and has always been there when I have had any questions, Hopefully very soon she will be helping me with my adoption. I know she is always there when needed and will work very hard on anything you may need.

Can't say enough good things about Rachel and her firm. Will take care of your needs and will make you rethink all the lawyer jokes you passed along to your friends. She is very detailed oriented, and will be honest with you. If you want someone that will fight with you and believes in your case then you found the right person. Never seen someone with so much passion for their job and for the people's lives she is fighting for! Give up that lawyer search now, you've found your lady!

Having to seek legal assistance was scary, stressful, difficult, and emotional. I could not imagine going through my situation alone knowing all the possible outcomes when it came to my children, my life, career, and my home. They took the time to listen and explain my rights, the legal process, discuss all of my options and answer my questions. They prepared me for the possible outcomes and have stood by me through some very trying times. I cannot thank them enough for what they have done for me and my family.
