Dr. Nick Oberheiden, co-founder of Dallas-based law firm Oberheiden & McMurrey, LLP announced today that he has taken over the defense of Daniel Holtzclaw in the federal civil cases currently pending in the United States District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma.
Daniel Holtzclaw is a former Oklahoma City police officer that was accused and ultimately convicted of various crimes committed while on duty as a police officer. Pending Daniel’s appeal of a 263-year prison sentence, several victims from the criminal case have filed lawsuits against the municipality of Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma City Police Department, and various individuals in the department, including Daniel individually. The lawsuits claim violations of the victim’s civil rights. Daniel’s case has been featured by media stations across the country and it is considered one of the most controversial investigations in recent Oklahoma history.
“If you believe in justice, you sometimes have to act and take the lead. I do believe in Daniel’s innocence and this sincere belief prompts me to serve as Daniel’s federal civil defense counsel. Daniel is entitled to a fair trial and we will make sure that his constitutional rights remain protected,” says Daniel’s lead federal attorney Dr. Nick Oberheiden.
Attorney Nick Oberheiden is no stranger to representing high-profile clients in federal cases. His federal defense practice encompasses cases around the country, and he has a long history of representing active law enforcement personnel. Dr. Oberheiden has been featured on media stations in all 50 states, most recently as Fox 4 legal expert in the federal corruption trial of John Wiley Price in Dallas. Elizabeth Stepp, a twenty- year litigation veteran that comes with the highest pedigree from Yale Law School, is part of the team and has years of experience in defending police departments and individual officers in civil rights cases.
