Gary Chubbuck (1948-2016)

We are saddened by the passing of our firm founder, Gary M. Chubbuck, on March 11, 2016.

Gary’s four-decade career saw him become the preeminent products liability litigation attorney in Oklahoma. His client list included major manufacturers, such as Honda, Kawasaki and Yamaha.

Gary graduated from Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C. in 1966, where he held many track and field records. He attended Randolph-Macon College in Ashland, Virginia on a basketball scholarship, and graduated in 1970 with a degree in Mathematics. After graduation, he worked in the space flight division of Computer Sciences Corporation in Silver Spring where he worked on programs that ran unmanned satellites. In 1972, Gary moved to Norman to attend law school at the University of Oklahoma. There he met June Lester, a fellow law student; they married on August 9, 1975.

After graduation Gary practiced law, specializing primarily in the defense of major product manufacturers in personal injury litigation. After working for firms in Alexandria, Virginia and Chicago, Gary and June returned to Oklahoma City in 1981. Gary joined the firm of Pierce Couch Hendrickson Baysinger & Green, where he became a partner. In 1992, Gary founded the firm of Chubbuck, Bullard and Hoehner. He was a partner in his own firm until his retirement in 2013, and took great joy in helping advance the careers of the younger attorneys who worked for him.

In addition to Gary’s work as a products liability litigator, he provided pro bono representation to death row inmates during the appeals process. He served on the board of the Wesley Foundation at Langston University, where he helped institute a program designed to prepare students for entering the professional work force.

Gary was an avid aviation buff and connoisseur of fine crab cake dining.  Although his family settled in Oklahoma Territory at the time of the Land Run and Gary was a genuine crimson and cream Sooner, he was also a very proud native of the great state of Maryland.

Most importantly, he loved spending time with his grandson, Mitchell, and his dogs, Boomer and Herman.
