A. Ainslie Stanford II


Direct line: (405) 445-5226


Ainslie's practice focuses on representing and serving his clients primarily in litigation matters. He has broad litigation experience and has tried numerous cases to verdict in both jury and non-jury trial cases, and he has tried numerous arbitration cases across the country. He also frequently represents clients in contested administrative and regulatory matters. Ainslie's background has provided him with a unique blend of both civil and government litigation experience.  

Ainslie’s spent the first six years of his career in the Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office, where he successfully tried more than thirty cases to a jury verdict. In addition to his state and federal court litigation experience in all three Oklahoma federal district courts as well as multiple federal courts across the country, he has successfully represented clients in numerous arbitration hearings across the country, ranging from construction industry providers, to multinational financial services corporations, to small broker-dealers, to medical professionals, to private individuals.  While most litigated matters resolve before trial or hearing, it is Ainslie's extensive trial experience that enables him to provide his clients with a realistic perspective on the particular issues in their cases and challenges that they will face, which many other lawyers simply do not have.

Ainslie received his law degree from the University of Oklahoma College Of Law and his Bachelor of Business Administration in Finance from the Price College of Business at the University of Oklahoma. While in law school, Ainslie attended the University of Oxford Summer law program in Oxford, England at The Queen's College, and worked his way through law school as a licensed legal intern in the Oklahoma County District Attorney's Office White Collar Crime Division for the legendary Robert H. Macy. Upon graduating from law school, he was hired by Mr. Macy as an Assistant District Attorney. During his tenure as an Assistant District Attorney, Ainslie was selected to be a part of the Special Victim's Unit, handling the highest profile and often most difficult cases, where he successfully tried numerous SVU cases to jury verdict.

In 2004, Ainslie left the D.A.'s office to join a prestigious securities litigation firm, where he represented some of the biggest financial institutions in the world in a nationwide securities arbitration and employment litigation practice. In 2009, he became a partner with the firm of Corbyn Hampton, where he continued to represent his clients as well as firm clients in a broad range of litigated matters. In early 2013, after years of working collaboratively with Michael Crooks representing various corporate and individual clients, Ainslie and Michael decided they could best serve their clients by joining their practices.

Ainslie is admitted to practice in all Oklahoma courts, including the United States Federal District Courts for the Western, Eastern and Northern Districts of Oklahoma. Martindale-Hubbell, the most respected legal database in the world, has on an annual basis since 2011 recognized Ainslie as an "AV Preeminent" rated attorney, which is the highest possible rating available to a lawyer, and is an achievement indicating that judges he appears in front of as well as fellow lawyers rank him at the highest possible level of professional excellence. He was repeatedly honored by his fellow lawyers in Super Lawyers Magazine as a "Rising Star" in every year from 2007 to 2013. Beginning in 2014, and in every year since, Ainslie's peers have selected him as a "Super Lawyer" in the areas of construction litigation, business litigation and general civil litigation.
