Hi! I'm Heather. I've been a practicing attorney for the last 15 years, and I'd be happy to assist you for informational and educational purposes.
I don't quite understand your question. Who is the "he" that you are referring to? And what is the question that you are asking?
It sounds like you have a strong breach of contract case. I'm not located in Oklahoma or I would be happy to represent you. This website does not allow us attorneys to represent the customers we help. We are here to give information and education about specific legal questions. It does sound like he broke your written contract, and since the contract was in Lawton, OK (I lived there for a while 18 years ago), you can sue him there on your home turf. You will need to find an attorney well versed in contract law in your area.
Does that make sense?
You can research attorneys at lawyer.com or avvo.com.
If you get a judgment in Oklahoma, all you have to do is "register" your judgment in the state where he has property. Then, after a certain period of time, you are allowed to collect. One thing you can do is record a copy of the judgment against his real estate property records, and then you have to be paid if he ever tries to sell his real estate.
