Mark Darrah

StudioTulsa & Points-Of-View Commentator

Mark Darrah is a writer and practicing attorney based in Tulsa. Originally from Tahlequah – "the Athens of Northeastern Oklahoma" – he writes on a desk that was used by his great-grandfather to practice law in early statehood days. A picture of Woody Guthrie hangs on the wall right behind it, and a rock with sparkles from the Winding Stairs Mountains serves as a paperweight. Mark lives with his wife, Jackie, and their two dogs, Sammi and Chipper. He was identified as one of Tulsa's top attorneys in the May 2011 issue of TulsaPeople magazine.
