Mary Huckabee Named Partner
Conner & Winters today announced Mary P. Huckabee as the firm’s newest partner. Huckabee is a highly skilled transactional lawyer who handles zoning and land use, real estate, and banking and business acquisition deals in industries including construction, oil and gas, healthcare, and nonprofits.
“I am so proud of the land use and zoning practice I have developed at Conner & Winters. Every day, I help my clients navigate around the many hurdles in real estate development. Whether it’s a new business bringing jobs to downtown Tulsa, a nonprofit building affordable housing for seniors, or a restaurant welcoming customers to their patio, my greatest reward is to see their success reflected in the landscape of our community.”
Recently, Huckabee received the Best Lawyers in America®: Ones to Watch award that honors lawyers who have been in private practice for less than 10 years, and who have exhibited outstanding professional excellence. Her other achievements include being named as an Achiever Under 40 in 2018 by The Journal Record, serving as the editor-in-chief of the American Indian Law Review, and completing a federal judicial clerkship for Chief Judge James H. Payne with the Eastern District of Oklahoma.
“Mary’s list of accolades is just one of many reasons the firm named her to partnership. We’ve witnessed over the past decade how dedicated she is to improving the Tulsa and Oklahoma communities through her practice, the firm committees she serves on, and the community organizations she belongs to. We are so proud of her,” said Scott Hathaway, president of Conner & Winters.
Huckabee joined Conner & Winters in 2010 as a summer associate and then began her practice with the firm in 2012 after passing the bar exam. She currently serves on the firm’s small marketing, business development and recruitment committees, and is involved with the firm’s Connecting Women initiative. Additionally, she maintains an active membership with the American Bar Association, Oklahoma Bar Association, and Tulsa County Bar Association.
In her spare time, Huckabee serves on the OU Law Young Alumni Board and as a board member of the Tulsa Debate League. She also enjoys fixing up her 1924 Craftsman Bungalow and working in the garden.
Huckabee earned her Juris Doctor degree from the University of Oklahoma College of Law in 2012 and her Bachelor of Arts in 2008 from Columbia University where she studied environmental science.
