On Tuesday, January 17, 2023, the Supreme Court of the State of Oklahoma suspended Tulsa attorney Jeffrey Price Krigel over the case of malicious, reckless, and dishonest statements.

The case is entitled “Oklahoma Bar Association v. Jeffrey Price Krigel,” with case no. 7393.

The charges cited Oklahoma Rules of Professional Conduct 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 4.1,4.4, 8.2,8.4 and Rules Governing Disciplinary Proceedings 1.3.

The Rules of Professional Conduct can be found here.

Upon conducting an extensive review of the respondent’s court filings and pleadings, the Complainant alleges that the respondent asserts malicious, reckless, and dishonest statements in pleadings and in open court with the motivation to harass and intimidate the alleged rape victim, witnesses, law enforcement agents, prosecutors, and Judges. Moreover, despite several reminders from multiple courts about his temper, the respondent continues to amplify his false and incendiary attacks on the legal system and judiciary.

The filing states:

“Respondent served a subpoena duces tecum on the alleged rape victim in both the criminal and family law cases. Said subpoena was offensive, outrageous, and only could be intended to humiliate and intimidate the alleged rape victim. The subpoena was served by a process server and the service was videotaped at the direction of the Respondent. Respondent’s subpoena duces tecum requested additional documents from the alleged victim that was clearly irrelevant, privileged, and only for the purpose of harassment. These items included, but are not limited to, dating website information, credit card information, all mental health records, tax returns, and animal ownership records.”

The filing continues:

“In a civil case filed by Respondent, he accused a Tulsa County detective of driving under the influence, having unfit moral character, lies, misstatements, defamation, and targeting of individuals. Furthermore, he accused the detective of tampering with, destroying, and failing to preserve evidence in cases that he has investigated. Respondent has opined in public filings and statements that the detective has ties to the German National Socialist Party or NAZI party by virtue of the detective’s Germanic last name.”

The filing further states:

“During a criminal jury trial presided over by Judge Guten, Respondent, despite being instructed not to mention certain information in the presence of the jury, intentionally and deliberately ignored the Court’s instructions and referenced the information. During a bench conference, Respondent stated that he would do whatever he wanted and that he “strongly objected” to the Court not letting him discuss matters with the jury that he “wanted them to know about.”

Considering the alleged facts of the case, the court ordered the respondent to Show Cause. Unsatisfied with the Order, the respondent filed an Objection wherein he denied all the allegations. But upon reviewing the complaint and application for emergency suspension, the court finds that Mr. Krigel has committed conduct in violation of the abovementioned Rules of Conduct.

The Disposition states:

“IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED, ADJUDGED, AND DECREED that Respondent, Jeffrey Price Krigel, is immediately suspended from the practice of law, pursuant to Rule 6.2A of the RGDP.”

As of today, Mr. Krigel is listed on the website of the law firm Krigel Legal Law Firm as a practicing attorney. His info can be found on lawyerslegion.com. Mr. Krigel attended the University of Tulsa College of Law. He practices and is licensed in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
