Meet Jeremy Aaron Thurman
Partner at McIntyre Law Firm
As a personal injury lawyer, Jeremy Thurman believes in making Oklahoma a safer place by holding companies and individuals responsible. Not only does he address the behavior that led to injury, he also seeks a result for his clients that will make their lives better while creating a safer Oklahoma. Jeremy’s mantra in litigating the case is to outwork the opposing attorney and always strive to let the truth come out while showing compassion for the individuals or families who have suffered because of the neglect of another. Conduct repeated is conduct rewarded.
Jeremy loves representing injured individuals. In the mid-80s, his father was severely burned in an industrial accident. A few years later his cousin, whom he was close to, sadly died in a car crash. This sparked Jeremy into wanting to help families not only pursue justice, but to provide them with an empathic lawyer.
Considered one of the top trucking lawyers and catastrophic injury lawyers in Oklahoma, Jeremy is continuously ranked by his peers as an Oklahoma Super Lawyer (among the top 5% of lawyers in the state). Since 2018, Jeremy and Noble are among a small handful of lawyers to have more than one seven figure trial verdicts in Oklahoma. Jeremy has had numerous cases resolved for more than a million dollars, 5 of them in 2021 alone. Because of his success both in and out of the courtroom, Jeremy has been asked to teach other lawyers on trucking litigation topics such as Federal Motor Carrier Regulations, Trucking Safety, and depositions in catastrophic injury cases.
Jeremy was born in Paris, Texas and raised in Valliant, Oklahoma. In high school, he participated in baseball and basketball, graduating in the top 3 percent of his class. After high school, Jeremy attended Southeastern Oklahoma State University where he obtained a degree in Biological Health Sciences with a minor in Chemistry. He was accepted into various physical therapy schools and law schools and ultimately decided to pursue a career in law at the University of Oklahoma. Growing up in the beautiful Kiamichi Mountains, Jeremy still enjoys hunting and fishing with his family, residing in southeastern Oklahoma.
Jeremy received his juris-doctorate degree in May 2002 and was admitted to practice as a lawyer in September 2002. Following this, he went to work for an insurance defense firm in Oklahoma City. Jeremy will tell you he just did not have the heart to represent people or companies who had caused injury to other people. At the suggestion of his wife, Jeremy sent a resume into Noble McIntyre and was hired a few weeks later in April 2004. Jeremy and Noble have worked consistently together since then, having a great friendship and trust that enables them both to do the best for their clients. Jeremy is a partner at McIntyre Law.
