Attorney Profile

S. Rachel Pappy is the vice president and managing attorney of The Law Offices of Roderick H. Polston, P.C., an Oklahoma firm with offices in Norman, Edmond, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Yukon and Lawton. She focuses her practice exclusively on income tax matters and represents clients throughout the state.

After completing her undergraduate studies at Wayne State University, Ms. Pappy went on to attend Oklahoma City University School of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor in 2008. She works hard to reach successful resolutions to her clients' tax and IRS issues. She has reached good dispositions for her clients who owe back taxes, often with agreements to settle for much less than is owed. Ms. Pappy also brings a background in accounting to her legal practice. This helps her to better identify areas in which her clients can resolve their tax issues.

A well-respected attorney with an excellent reputation, Ms. Pappy was named in 2014 to the annual okc.BIZ magazine list of Forty Under 40 and has been a nominee for the Oklahoma Bar Association Outstanding Young Lawyer Award. She regularly appears on the radio to answer tax questions and has been featured in numerous magazines for her work.

Ms. Pappy is admitted to practice in Oklahoma and has been with her current firm since 2010. She is an active participant in both the Taxation Law Section and the Bankruptcy and Reorganization Section of the Oklahoma Bar Association. She is also a member of The Ruth Bader Ginsburg American Inn of Court and is often asked to speak before groups of fellow attorneys and accountants on federal income tax topics.
