Shelby Turner

Attorney Licensed in Oklahoma

Shelby is an attorney located in northeast Oklahoma focused on serving clients in matters related to agriculture, business transactions, and estate planning, among others. Her deep knowledge in livestock transactions, pesticide and herbicide regulations, and navigating USDA and state regulations enable her to provide excellent counsel to farmers and ranchers in Oklahoma.

Prior to joining Lyda, Shelby was assistant general counsel for the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food and Forestry. In this capacity, her duties were primarily focused on pesticide and herbicide compliance, as well as food safety matters. She is currently an active member of the American Agricultural Law Association, the preeminent organization for attorneys in agriculture, and was previously nominated for the Sirloin Club's Agriculturalist Under 40 award.

Shelby grew up on a swine farm in the small rural community of Velma, Oklahoma. As the daughter of a hog producer and the granddaughter of a soybean farmer, she has deep roots in agriculture and developed a passion for the industry early in life. She decided to couple that with her innate desire to solve complex problems, a savviness for business, and a penchant for words. This led her to earning a law degree at the University of Oklahoma, where she was involved in the initial formation of the OU Agricultural Law Association and a member of the prestigious Oklahoma Law Review, where she recieved the 2019 Gene H. and Jo Ann Sharp Outstanding Appointed Editor award. An educational highlight was studying at Brasenose College at the University of Oxford, England for a summer.

Shelby is dedicated to protecting and promoting all aspects of agriculture and strives to support rural Oklahomans and business owners by providing high-quality legal advice. Outside of work, Shelby enjoys traveling with her husband and spending time with her Shih Tzu, Sassy.
