Careers

Joining our team

McAfee & Taft was founded in 1952 by Kenneth McAfee and Richard Taft, whose legal expertise was in taxation and entrepreneurial business transactions. Since then, McAfee & Taft has evolved into Oklahoma's largest law firm. Our lawyers have wide-ranging expertise and service clients throughout the United States and around the world.

Mr. McAfee and Mr. Taft were, however, more than just top-flight lawyers; they were friends and mentors to those of us entrusted with continuing their tradition of excellence.

While our number one priority is to provide outstanding legal services to our clients, we pride ourselves in being different than other "big" firms. Our goal is to maintain and foster the collegial, comfortable and friendly atmosphere institutionalized by Mr. McAfee and Mr. Taft where, despite the inevitable grind of deadlines and hard work, it remains a pleasure to practice law because of our outstanding people.

McAfee & Taft employs more than 150 non-attorney professionals to assist our lawyers in delivering the highest quality legal services in the most efficient manner possible. These dedicated individuals include paralegals, legal secretaries, technology specialists, researchers, accountants, office services staff, human resources and marketing professionals.

Periodically, we have a need for other highly motivated, capable individuals to join our team. We offer competitive salaries, a comprehensive benefits package, and a professional and friendly working environment.
