Biography

Hammons Hepner joined Sharp Law as the firm’s first intern in June 2020 and continued to intern throughout his last year of law school at the University of Oklahoma College of Law and during bar preparation. Hammons’ practice at Sharp Law involves all aspects of the firm’s class action and complex litigation lawsuits. Before attending law school, Hammons received degrees in agricultural economics and finance from Oklahoma State University. As a student at Oklahoma State, Hammons interned as a student assistant to then-President V. Burns Hargis, researched consumer preferences in meat consumption and high-frequency commodity trading, and worked as a legislative assistant and lobbyist during the 2018 Regular Session in Oklahoma. 

Hammons graduated from OU Law in May 2021. During law school, Hammons served as the Executive Articles Editor of the Oklahoma Law Review, where he oversaw outside article submissions and managed a team of eight substantive editors. His article examining the definition of “waters of the United States” under the Clean Water Act and its impact on agriculture was published in January 2021 in the Oklahoma Law Review. Hammons also co-founded the Agricultural Law Association and served on the executive board of several student organizations, including the Federal Bar Association, the Student Bar Association, and the Oil & Gas, Natural Resources & Energy Law Society (ONE-S).
