    Our Founding Partner Has Helped Thousands of Oklahomans

    Gayle Troutman is a Tulsa Social Security Disability lawyer with 30 years of legal experience. She helps people facing work-ending health problems win the disability benefits they need

    She is the founder and a partner at the Troutman & Troutman disability law firm for Oklahomans. Like all of the Social Security attorneys at the firm, Gayle focuses only on disability cases, freeing her to be fully dedicated to people who need benefits.

    From initial applications for benefits to appealing denials, Gayle has helped thousands of people. She has taken multiple cases to the level of appeals in federal court and written more than 1,500 legal briefs for federal court.

    For Gayle, the law firm is a family that helps other families when medical impairments rob them of income. Her husband, Steve Troutman, is also a disability lawyer working at the firm.

    This is a truly fulfilling area of the law, Gayle says, because she gets to help real, everyday people. She gets to see the results of her work—when people secure their disability benefits and reach a better situation in their lives.

    If you’re in Tulsa and Broken Arrow, Bartlesville, Owasso, Muskogee, Tahlequah, or anywhere in Oklahoma, and you need disability benefits, call Gayle and her team.

    Disability Law Is All We Do.

    I absolutely love these people. . . . I applied and they made it so easy. Always contacted me if necessary, or if I called, they always called back by the next day. Always helpful. I received disability through their services. Now my husband is needing their services, and I feel great using them. . . . Steve and Gayle Troutman are super nice people. Both of them were my professors when I attended paralegal school in 2004. I highly recommend this law firm.”
