Ed Blau began his legal career in the Oklahoma County Public Defender’s Office, where he saw first-hand the devastating effects of drug addiction and mental illness in his clients. After the public defender’s office, Mr. Blau moved to the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s office, where he prosecuted every type of felony charge, including First Degree Murder. In addition, Ed Blau served as the chief prosecutor of Oklahoma County’s Drug Court and Mental Health Court, working with Oklahomans in their struggle to overcome those issues which invariably led to their involvement in the criminal justice system.
