L. Paul Hood, III


Associate Attorney

Paul joined the firm in 2022 after graduating from Loyola University New Orleans College of Law. Paul is, as he says, “Louisiana Born and Louisiana Raised,” and grew up in the city of Mandeville located just outside of New Orleans. Paul completed his undergraduate education at Louisiana State University (LSU), where he was active in the Pi Kappa Alpha (Pike) Chapter and spent 2 years working in and around the LSU Athletics Department. After his time at LSU, Paul completed 2 years as a Graduate Assistant for the University of Oklahoma Athletics Department, where he met his wife Burkely. As his time in Norman came to a close, Paul made the decision to change directions and attain a legal education. He has never looked back, and absolutely loves the legal profession. Following their stint in New Orleans during Paul’s law school career, Paul and Burkely decided to move back to Oklahoma, where their journey originally began, and have made the Tulsa area their home.

When he is not working, Paul enjoys spending time with his family and friends and loves watching sports, traveling, and checking out local cuisine.
