L. Ray Maples II

Founding Attorney

Ray Maples is a dedicated trial lawyer and skilled accident attorney in Edmond, OK. For more than 13 years, he has dedicated his entire practice to helping injured victims fight back against negligent corporations and massive insurance companies. Amongst other areas, he focuses primarily on truck accidents and catastrophic injuries, assisting clients throughout the state of Oklahoma, Arkansas, Georgia, and Tennessee. He regularly handles a wide range of highly complex cases, always fighting for the full, fair compensation his clients are owed.

Ray was born in Albany, Georgia in 1971. He attended Valdosta State University where he earned a degree in marketing before going on to Oklahoma State University School of Law. He began his legal career on the other side of personal injury, litigating on behalf of insurance companies and other corporations at a large Atlanta firm. Soon, Ray decided to instead help the individuals that these companies were taking advantage of as they worked to put “profits over people.” In 2002, he opened Maples Law Firm and began devoting his practice to helping ordinary individuals who had suffered serious accidents as a result of someone else’s negligence.

By 2015, after growing by more than three times in size, Maples & Associates joined with another firm with a similar mission to help injured individuals and their families, Nix Law Group. Together, as Maples, Nix & Diesselhorst, they have helped numerous individuals fight for the justice and recovery they deserved.

Throughout his extensive career, Ray has successfully obtained a number of million and multi-million dollar jury verdicts for his clients. Recently, he successfully recovered a verdict of $3 million in a nursing home abuse case against both the home and its owner. At the time of judgment, this was the third largest personal injury verdict to be awarded in that county in Oklahoma.

Ray’s skill and dedication to his clients have earned him recognition from an array of prestigious, nationwide organizations and professional publications. He has received the highest rating possible, an AV® Rating from Martindale-Hubbell®, and was included in the Super Lawyers® list, an honor reserved for the top 5% of lawyers. He is also a lifetime member of both the Million Dollar Advocates Forum and the Multi-Million Dollar Advocates Forum. Membership in these prestigious organizations is limited to attorneys that have successfully achieved million and multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements.

Outside of the courtroom, Ray is a published author of two books, Restore the Dignity and Don’t Wreck Twice. He has also appeared and/or been discussed on a number of local and national TV shows, including ABC News, The Dr. Phil Show, 20/20, and more.

Together, Ray and his wife of more than 16 years have two children.
