Summary

I have over 15 years in the criminal justice system in Oklahoma. However, I have experience in matters well beyond criminal law. I have experience in matters involving civil litigation, civil rights, employment law, privacy rights, and a variety of other legal issues.

As an Assistant District Attorney, I handled a substantial number of cases and was frequently in the courtroom. As General Counsel for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, the Board of Corrections, Director, and executive staff relied upon me for my legal advice, judgment, and leadership.

I operate and manage the Cincotta Law Office PLLC and am Of Counsel with Butler & Flynn. I provide a variety of legal services. I am dedicated, accomplished, and compassionate. No matter what your legal needs may be, I welcome the opportunity to assist you.

Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. In 2003 I believe an article was published in the Oklahoma Bar Journal that dealt with brief writing
A: I could be wrong, but I believe the one you are looking for was published in 2006. Don Gifford wrote an article titled: Very Appealing Ethics. Oklahoma Bar Journal, Volume 77, Issue 34, December 9, 2006. Specific article is found on page 3471. I hope that helps! -David Cincotta
Q. Do I have to register as a violent offender if I was convicted in 1997 in the state of Oklahoma
A: It depends. Registration (violent registration and sex offender registration) issues are reliant upon case-specific facts and often prior versions of statute still apply to specific individuals. Therefore, there is no way to provide a simple yes or no answer to your question. There are additional facts that would need to be known first.
Q. In Oklahoma with out a signed consent can cps/ dhs visit with my children without my permission if they are minors
A: The short answer to your question is yes. DHS can visit with a child without parental consent when a parent (or person responsible for the child's health, safety, or welfare) is not present. That interview can occur at the child's school. If they do conduct an interview with a child at the child's school without parental consent, DHS is required to notify the parent that such an interview has occurred. The answer above would be different if you were present and refused to allow the interview to occur. It is important that you meet with an attorney, and you should do so as soon as possible. Most attorneys offer a free consultation. Take advantage of that, and be open with the attorney. You may want to focus your search for an attorney who practices family law.
