Our firm is primarily engaged in litigation of all business, professional, employment, tort and insurance matters in all state and federal courts in Oklahoma. Our goal is to examine each client’s legal problem and implement a solution that best meets the client’s objectives. That may be positioning the case for settlement or preparing the case for trial and, if necessary, an appeal. Our offices are located in downtown Oklahoma City, but our clients exist throughout the Sooner state and U.S.

The firm was founded in 1947 by Edgar Fenton, one of the authors of Oklahoma’s first workers compensation statute enacted earlier in the 20th Century. As others joined him the firm became one of the premier insurance defense firms. Since then it has maintained this core identity, but broadened its litigation experience into other areas. A team of experienced “of counsel” provide property, probate, civil rights and employment expertise to the corps of litigation attorneys who handle insurance, personal injury, business tort and workers compensation lawsuits.

The firm, originally Fenton & Fenton, was founded in 1947 by Edgar R. Fenton (1890-1977), who had established a successful law practice, and his son, Elliott C. Fenton (1914-2015). The firm’s practice was initially concentrated in the areas of suretyship, insurance coverage matters, and the defense of a wide range of personal injury and property damage matters. The Fentons were later joined by William G. Smith (1919-1993), Dale Reneau (1931-2017) and Milton Moon (1921-1988) and the firm became known by its current name in 1965. The firm has retained the name Fenton, Fenton, Smith, Reneau & Moon in honor of the long established tradition and reputation in the legal community.
