Pat Mensching represents regional and local businesses in a variety of litigation areas. Those areas include bankruptcy, construction, commercial collections, contracts, fiduciary relationships and mortgage foreclosure. He is the quintessential “rubber meets the road” litigator.
Pat believes his clients are best served if he maintains constructive relationships with the Judiciary and fellow members of the Bar. Toward that end, he has been an active member of the Hudson Hall Wheaton Chapter of the American Inns of Court since 2007. He has also served as a Special Judge of the Oklahoma Court of Appeals Temporary Division.
