Alexander J. Sisemore, an associate at Franden Farris, has been named to Lawyers of Color’s Second Annual Hot List, which recognizes early- to mid-career minority attorneys working as in-house counsel, government attorneys, and law firm associates and partners. The list is comprised of attorneys from Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, and Arkansas. Franden Farris is very pleased to have Alex named to this exceptional group.
Alex works on a variety of litigation matters, including general liability, professional liability, insurance subrogation, and employment law. Alex joined Franden Farris upon graduating from the University of Oklahoma College of Law where he was a published author on the Oklahoma Law Review and was a Teaching Assistant to a Research & Writing class, the Secretary of the Asian Pacific American Law Student Association, and the Managing Editor of the Oklahoma Law Review.

Alex is also a member of Tulsa Young Professionals, an organization dedicated to attracting and retaining young talent in the Tulsa region and establishing the next generation of Tulsa’s business and community leaders.
The honorees were chosen through a two-pronged process. The selection committee spent months reviewing nominations and researching bar association publications and legal blogs in order to identify promising candidates. Nominations from mentors, peers, and colleagues were accepted. The selection committee also made editorial picks of attorneys who had noteworthy accomplishments, especially those active in legal pipeline initiatives.
