Kingfisher native Sally Hasenfratz originally thought she would enter business after college, so she majored in finance. Her early business experience convinced her to pursue post-graduate education.
Instead of a master’s in business administration, she decided to go the law school route and earned her juris doctorate from the University of Oklahoma in 1986. The following year, she obtained a master’s degree in tax at Southern Methodist University to strengthen her business acumen.
Hasenfratz began her legal career as an associate with McDivitt & Casey before working five years with Gooding, Mulinix & Hardin. In 1997, she joined Andrews Davis Legg Bixler Milstein & Price and was shareholder and director. She joined Phillips McFall McCaffrey McVay & Murrah in 2001 and today serves as shareholder and director of the Oklahoma City law firm.
Her practice focuses on transactional law with specialties in real estate law, mergers and acquisitions, law related to business organizations, and estate planning. She has a wide range of experience in all phases of real estate development including acquisitions, financing, sales, leasing and management of real estate projects. She has been involved in complex public-private development projects including Bricktown.
Hasenfratz is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, American Bar Association and Commercial Real Estate Women. She has lectured for continuing legal education in matters of estate planning and real estate. She is admitted to practice in Oklahoma, U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma and the U.S. Tax Court.
She currently serves on the board of Oklahoma City Beautiful and is a former board member of Ballet Oklahoma, Cimarron Alliance Foundation and AIDS Support Program Inc. During her tenure as president of AIDS Support Program, she facilitated the purchase of an additional residential facility for families living with HIV/AIDS.
She has been named to Oklahoma Super Lawyers in real estate for two years in a row and ranked in the Top 25 Female Lawyers in Oklahoma.
