I am a good teacher. I like to teach, and I enjoy working through the kinds of problems that we face as trial lawyers in our cases, in the courtroom, and with juries. Deposition and Case strategy (along with jury research) are my specialty areas. That includes collaboratively building detailed, realistic models of the defense case, testing case facts and theories with surveys, developing and testing alternative theories, and conducting in person research, including the use of shadow juries.

I'm excited to be at TLU and have an opportunity to work with each of you. There are some personal things about me that you should know. I am a teaser. It’s hard for me to resist the temptation to tease people when the occasion arises. It’s never in meanness and I try to be considerate of other’s feelings, but I probably have some work to do in that area. I am also blunt, I blame my parents and the rest of my family. In fairness, it's possible that none of them are as blunt as I am. If we are working together and you ask me what I think, I will be as gentle as I can be. I’ve gotten better with age but sometimes a blunt answer just spills out. Sorry.

When I teach, my goal is to collaboratively move people to a different level of insight and skill. That’s fun for me. It gives me joy. Otherwise, I am an open book. I’m not including the usual stuff about schools, degrees, writings, wins/losses, certificates, ribbons, ratings, spouses, hobbies, dogs, adventures, and travel…but ask if you are interested. I look forward to meeting you.

Bailey & Oliver

I was named after Satchel Paige the baseball player. People often ask me why there is not a “t” in my name and the truth is that my parents were afraid I would be called a satchel bag at school. I was raised in the small town of Viola, Arkansas and give the credit of my success to my wonderful parents, Eddy and Jeanie Oliver.

I basically drove my mentor, Frank Bailey, nuts until he agreed to hire me. The first three phone calls to Frank’s office resulted in failure because the office manager simply told me, “Mr. Bailey was not hiring.” I brainstormed magic words with my parents and called back a 4th time asking if I could just spend “5 minutes with Mr. Bailey.” Thank goodness Frank agreed. In those 5 minutes, Frank determined I had great potential and hired me to trim the boxwoods and plant begonias in the firm’s garden. I told Frank that I would do whatever he wanted me to do for little or no money under one condition… If Frank went somewhere on a case for any reason, he must take me with him. We have been together ever since.

I am married to Codi Oliver who is a pediatric occupational therapist. We have two daughters, Reesa and Reagan. One of our favorite things to do is ride horses together on our ranch in beautiful Northwest Arkansas. I am passionate about my faith and discipling men to be their best.
