About Oath Law

Oath Law’s mission is to help 1 million families create their ideal estate plan.

Oath Law is different from traditional law firms, because we utilize technology to provide estate planning typically reserved for millionaires to all families.

Oath Law the trade name of the estate planning law firm RTY Law, P.C. and has offices throughout the United States.

About Rod

I grew up in Owasso, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I went to the University of Oklahoma on an academic and leadership scholarship.

I have always had a deep curiosity about a lot subjects. In undergrad I was a double major in Philosophy and Political Science. I took most of my electives in Psychology and received a Psychology minor as well.

After undergrad none of the big Philosophy firms were hiring (I’m kidding, there are no big Philosophy firms, ha). I decided that I wanted to further my education and I attended the University of Oklahoma College of Law on an academic scholarship.

During my second year of law school my grandmother passed away. Since I am the only lawyer in my family, my mother called and asked what she should do. Since I was only in my second year of law school, and I didn’t want to make a mistake working on a case for my family, I told her to call an attorney.

My grandmother’s estate should have been simple to administer. She didn’t have millions of dollars. She did have people that she loved and she wanted the best for them. Unfortunately, my grandmother’s estate ended up in a messy probate. To make matters worse, because my grandmother had an out-of-date estate plan, my mother and her brothers were confused and left wondering what to do.

I learned from my grandmother’s estate that any person who has people that they love and assets that they value will benefit from an estate plan.

Sometimes people who don’t have a lot of assets have even more to lose if they don’t have a good estate plan.

I started Oath Law to provide obtainable estate planning to every family.

In the old days, only millionaires had estate plans. At Oath Law we use technology and a proven process to create estate plans that work for every person who has things they value and people that they cherish and want to protect.

What We Stand For


Each of our clients and their families are unique. Forms don’t work. We provide customized, personal estate planning.


An incomplete estate plan is a plan that will fail. We take the time to identify all the things you care most about in this world, to protect them for the people you love the most.


We understand how your assets fit together and the best way to ensure they benefit the people you cherish.


We give you advice with your best interest in mind. We treat you like we would want to be treated.
