Remaining there for twenty-four years, he chose to focus on employment law and civil rights litigation in addition to general civil litigation. It also during his time there that he helped found and then lead the employment services division of the firm, acting as both an attorney as well as a supervisor. In 2005, Priest joined another Oklahoma City-based law practice, Whitten, Burrage, Priest, Fulmer, Anderson & Eisel, where he focused on employment law and civil rights litigation.
