Elaina Osteen and Brian Blackstock Named Sweet Law Partners
“Elaina has tremendous experience in insurance defense, with an emphasis on complex medical malpractice defense,” said Sweet Law Partner Curt Dewberry. “She has worked extensively in cases ranging from complex birth injury to long term care, trucking, and auto negligence, all with great success. Her first chair and second chair trial experience has made her a valued team member. Elaina’s been one of our standout mentors to younger attorneys and shares her trial experiences with the next generation of trial attorneys. She has also spent a great deal of time in teaching and presenting seminars with the firm’s health system clients.”
A graduate of Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma College of Law, Elaina lives the firm’s values of community service through her long-standing volunteer efforts. Elaina is the President of the Junior League of Tulsa, an organization partnering with non-profits such as Resonance Center for Women, Street School, and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to provide hands on education and training for women and children in transition to end the cycle of poverty. She is also involved with Tulsa Lawyers for Children.
Elaina is a member of the Oklahoma Bar Association, Tulsa County Bar Association and is admitted to practice before the United States District Courts for the Northern and Eastern Districts of Oklahoma. She will serve as the Managing Partner of the firm’s Tulsa office.
“Brian Blackstock has spent his career working with most of the largest health systems as a valued asset to daily operations,” said Sweet Law Partner Naureen Hubbard. “Brian has been involved in nearly every practice area of the firm and is a go-to lawyer for clients when there is a novel issue or a complex problem.”
Brian has been part of the catastrophic injury trial team and has progressed to the point of trying cases directly to juries. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Law, Brian served as President of Phi Alpha Delta and was an active member of the Student Bar Association. He is a member of the Defense Research Institute and the Ruth Bader Ginsburg American Inn of Court. Brian has been instrumental in leading the firm’s Covid-19 strategies, drafting executive orders and legislation and counseling clients on ethical matters, all while maintaining his busy caseload and trial commitments.
