Nope. Do not trust thos judge. He favors attorneys he knows and uses the good ol boy system. He has failed my daughter and i, and parental alienation is alive and well. If you see him on your docket. Prepare for lots of fighting in court. And thousands gone out of your pocket. Because after 5 years of fighting. Im up over 15k in cost. He will belittle you and not even listen to your side.

Takes a captive audience and pontificates about how ignorant the world is, terrible in criminal cases, if you have a criminal case with him, bend over and grab your ankles because the prosecution is going to have some fun.

i really dont have too many positive things to say about Judge Thygesen. He needs to remember that even the poor and uneducated are people too. he is a very arrogant person.

Civil Litigation - Private

Comment #: OK700
You can tell he has tried a great number of cases and is very comfortable making decisions. Not hesitant to rule but respectful when he does. Reasonable, prompt and fair. My case before him is over and I will likely not have another one in Muskogee, something I regret.
