PROCESSES NECESSARY WHEN CATASTROPHIC INJURY, OR SADLY SOMETIMES DEATH, OCCURS AS THE RESULT OF ANOTHER’S NEGLIGENT ACTIONS. In this piece, you'll ready about the emphasis McIntyre Law P.C. president and managing partner Noble McIntyre places on hiring women interested in law careers. Three of these attorneys took part in a recent fashion photo shoot that showcases their personal style flair. In another story, you'll learn how a local nonprofit, Suited for Success, is helping low-income women prepare for that all-important job interview, as well as offering other means to help them achieve self-sufficiency. Other stories focus on a range of topics, including a student-run food pantry that is providing free food and other goods to members of the University of Oklahoma community who are in need of assistance and a local clinic that helps

therapy and medical weight loss. Make sure you also look for the column inside on how a financial adviser can help to ensure you don't outlive your money, a concern for many. Longtime area residents also may get a kick out of our piece on the old Schwab Mansion in Moore and the beautiful sculpture that used to grace its grounds. The building, sadly, is no more, but the "Naked Ladies" (see associated photo on this page) sculpture still stands. Of course, those are just some of the highlights of what you will find inside.

SHOULD BE, YOU CAN FIND IT ALL AT THE WEAVER CLINICS’ CENTRAL LOCATION IN MOORE. Owned and operated by Dr. Kim Weaver, the clinic, at 2125 Riverwalk Drive, recently celebrated its 10th birthday, and is offering a wide variety of state-of-theart procedures designed to help patients improve their health and age gracefully. Services available at the four Weaver Clinics include bioidentical hormone therapy, medical weight loss and a variety of aesthetics procedures, including body sculpting, vaginal rejuvenation, lasers, micro-needling and hormone injections. “Our primary service is bioidentical hormone therapy for women and men over age 40,” Weaver said. “Our medical team has advanced clinical training in customizing and optimizing hormones, including estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone, thyroid and vitamin D. We have years of experience and knowledge of the best and safest treatment options to treat symptoms of hormone imbalance and low testosterone. We listen to our patients and provide them with education on customized treatment options.” Bioidentical hormones are simply hormones that are identical at the molecular level to those produced by the human body. The bioidentical hormone therapy offered at the Weaver Clinics helps many patients eliminate or reduce hormone-related symptoms like hot flashes, insomnia, anxiety, depression, low energy, low sex drive and painful intercourse.

“It’s unfortunate there is so much misinformation on hormones from so many sources,” Weaver said. “We have over 50 years of scientific evidence proving the safety and efficacy of bioidentical hormones for men and women. My favorite part of the job is educating my patients. It is so gratifying to see them transform from the first visit, where they often feel like they are at bottom, without hope, and after a thorough evaluation including lab work and starting a plan together, they return for their follow-up visits with a smile and a spring in their step.”

“I have a mother and three sisters and a wife and three daughters and I’m very aware there are times where they must work twice as hard just to be granted the same opportunities as others,” he says. “I don’t like that for my sisters, daughters or employees. The women I’ve hired are incredibly intelligent, extremely hard-working and very loyal to the firm. I have some absolute rock stars working for me, and I would take my team over anyone.”

BEYOND THE POWER SUIT When you think about trial lawyers, you probably think crisp, custom, well-tailored, dark blue or black power suits. There are times that is true. But the life as a trial lawyer isn’t reserved just for the trials. While they may don such power suits for the courtroom and other formal settings, three attorneys at McIntyre Law recently revealed a flair for more expressive clothing and accessories. The McIntyre Law ladies wore clothes generously provided by LIBERTÉ in Oklahoma City, CK & CO. in Nichols Hill Plaza, and Lucca, located at the Campus Corner in Norman.

THE WOMEN TRIAL LAWYERS OF MCINTYRE LAW Jordan Klingler is a partner at McIntyre Law and is a key part of the firm’s future plans. Jordan made partner on a fast-track and by virtue of becoming a crucial component to the firm’s marketing plans (she is the voice and face of multiple television, radio and billboard campaigns). She has significantly broadened the firm’s litigation capabilities and market presence. Jordan joined McIntyre Law after working for a major insurance company handling insurance defense litigation. Her background in defense work has provided a unique perspective in case evaluation and prosecution as she has inside knowledge into the defense playbook. She has parlayed these insights into first chair trial experience and results for her clients. “The defense bar has more diversity than we do because their corporate clients demand it,” says Jordan. “On the plaintiff side, opportunities are harder to come by, which makes it more difficult to gain the experience and confidence needed to advance your career.” Jordan describes the challenges faced by women trial lawyers. “Women have to master a balancing act. We need to be competent and confident handling the cases entrusted to us, while still being ourselves and without abandoning the positive traits associated with being female. With Oklahoma clients and in our courtrooms, that balance is a sweet steeliness.” Jordan earned her law degree from the Oklahoma City University School of Law and her undergraduate degree in business administration from the University of Central Oklahoma. She was awarded Oklahoma’s 2019 Class of the Top Young Professionals Under the Age of 40, Lawyers of Distinction in 2019 and Outstanding New Lawyer of OAJ in 2018. Monica Kuykendall Schweighart is an associate attorney at McIntyre Law who focuses primarily on automobile injury cases and vicious dog attacks. She is committed to keeping her clients informed throughout every step of the legal process and always strives to obtain the best results for her injured clients. She joined the firm immediately after law school. In reality, her initial interview with Noble McIntyre wasn’t really an interview at all.  It was simply a meeting she had requested at the suggestion of a attorney MONICA KUYKENDALL SCHWEIGHART, modeling a Badgley Mischka black neoprene dress ($395) from CK & CO.

ARTICLE LINDSEY DAVIES

SUITED FOR SUCCESS ORGANIZATION HELPS WOMEN ACHIEVE SELF-SUFFICIENCY BY PROVIDING THEM WITH PROFESSIONAL ATTIRE

MANY WOMEN FACE OBSTACLES WHEN LOOKING FOR EMPLOYMENT. An unfortunate, but all-too-common barrier for low-income women is a lack of professional attire to wear to interviews and jobs. Improperly fitting clothes, extremely dated outfits and otherwise nonprofessional options can result in an inability to get hired, regardless of qualifications or determination. For more than two decades, Suited for Success Inc. has been helping women to look and feel professional when entering the work force. Here, Susan Walton, founder and executive director with SFS, shares  how their organization functions and how Cleveland County Lifestyle readers can help them succeed. COULD YOU GIVE A BRIEF HISTORY OF YOUR ORGANIZATION? I founded Suited for Success, Inc., a nonprofit organization, in 1995. I knew I wanted to start a clothes closet for women in need after being inspired by a news program featuring a similar organization in Chicago. But before I could move forward with Suited for Success, I was severely injured in the Oklahoma City Murrah Building bombing. I spent the next two years recovering from injuries before I was able to serve my first client. Suited for Success has provided more than 9,900 women with business attire for their job search. 38

Matt Marks, graduate director of the OU Food Pantry

WHEN FUNDS GET LOW, ALMOST EVERY STUDENT HAS HAD TO DO IT. Resorting to Ramen or peanut butter has been a rite of passage for many college students. However, when struggling to just find enough food to scrape by, grades and health can start to suffer. And it isn’t just students who feel the tightness in their food and hygiene budget. Some staff and faculty also often struggle to meet

OU FOOD PANTRY

their day-to-day sustenance needs. In March 2017, University of Oklahoma Student Government Association students stepped in and formed a food pantry. Entirely student run, the OU Food Pantry continues to serve the campus’s entire community. All that’s required to access the food pantry is an OU ID. I spoke with Matt Marks, graduate director of the OU Food Pantry, about the organization’s history, how it works and what you can do to help. CAN YOU GIVE ME A BRIEF HISTORY OF YOUR ORGANIZATION? This was an initiative that the university had wanted for a few years prior, and after a year’s work, with students and staff working together, the pantry was able to open. The pantry is all student-run and operated. Since opening, students have built up vol-

during our operation hours or they have the option to order from our online shopping list. If they choose the latter, our staff will box up their orders and have them ready for pickup. The purpose for that is to make it as easy and stress free as possible for our customers. WHAT UNIQUE OBSTACLES DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION FACE? We are very unique in the sense that we operate like a student organization but are also conducting business as a nonprofit. Many people don’t think of college students, let alone staff and faculty, as needing assistance, but since opening our numbers continue to climb as people find out about us. One of our biggest challenges is keeping the shelves stocked with certain items. We rely on our partnerships and donors. Additionally, down the road we will be looking to grow in space, as currently we tend to pack out our small room during our busiest times. WHAT CAN READERS DO TO HELP? We are always looking for donations, whether that be monetary or food/toiletry items. Our support from the community since we opened has been fantastic. We have grown in our partnerships with local businesses in the last six months. But, the fight against hunger is far from over. We have students and staff who need your help. One of the greatest fundamental values of the state of Oklahoma is the sense of community. Our pantry has been a benefactor of that community, and we want that to continue to grow. From serving families of five to students who need help getting through the weekend, our pantry is committed to making sure everyone is taken care of. We want Oklahomans to be a part of this process with us. Anyone who wants to volunteer or donate, we would gladly appreciate the help!
