Micah Mahdi is a transactional lawyer whose practice encompasses a broad range of business transactions and the general representation of entrepreneurs and businesses in matters involving entity formation and structuring, mergers and acquisitions, operations and governance, formation and structuring, contract drafting and negotiations, commercial finance, and real estate.
As part of her real estate practice, she represents clients in the sale, acquisition, development, and commercial leasing of real property, including ad valorem taxation, title, survey, and other due diligence activities.
In collaborating with both clients and colleagues, Micah draws upon her strong work ethic, understanding and study of human behavior, and the valuable interpersonal skills she developed while working multiple jobs in the legal, hospitality and retail industries while still an undergraduate.
The Texas native earned her bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of North Texas in 2016 and went on to graduate with honors from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2019. While in law school, she was a member of the Oklahoma Law Review and was named to the Order of the Coif and the Order of Solicitors.

Upon graduating she was honored with the 2019 Joel Jankowsky Award, which recognizes the graduating student who exemplifies the highest standard of excellence in leadership, scholarship, and selfless service to others.
