James H. Beauchamp, Attorney at Law
Hi. I’m Jim Beauchamp, and I practice law in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I’m originally from Stillwater, where I met and married Fran. After we graduated from OSU in 1965, we moved to New Orleans where I attended Tulane Law School. In 1968 I graduated from Tulane with honors, then moved to Indianapolis to begin my two year Army career. I spent my second year in Vietnam as part of the Engineering Corps, where I worked for the commanding general, defended soldiers in various court martials – from possession to murder – and taught classes for the University of Maryland.
Following Vietnam, Fran and I moved to Dayton, Ohio, where I practiced with the law firm Bieser, Greer and Landis for seven years. While living in Ohio, Fran and I welcomed the births of our two oldest children, Greg and Colleen.
In late 1977, we relocated to Oklahoma, where I joined the firm of Miller, Dollarhide and Beauchamp. I stayed there for two years, then moved to Tulsa to become general counsel of a publicly held firm. Our youngest son, John was born in 1980, after which I decided to open my own firm.
I am listing some accolades, which are written in traditional third person language:
