Crowe & Dunlevy



Labor and employment

Crowe & Dunlevy maintains one of the largest groups dedicated to labor and employment in the state. Adam Childers is one of the most active lawyers in the labor and employment group. In a single-plaintiff matter, Childers defended The Salvation Army against alleged disability discrimination, gender discrimination and retaliation claims, along with an additional claim for misclassification under the FLSA. Childers prevailed against the FLSA claim after a major cross-examination finding led to its voluntarily dismissal by the plaintiff. The case is ongoing with the other claims.

He and Allen Hutson represented two doctors individually and acted as co-counsel for Oklahoma State University Center for Health Services. The lawsuit was filed by a former resident in the school’s residency program who alleged numerous claims against the doctors and the school. Last year, the team was granted summary judgment in a 121-page order from the Western District of Oklahoma.

Mary Snyder partnered with Childers to defend Lowe’s Home Centers in a FMLA matter. Snyder and Childers filed a motion to dismiss which was granted by the Northern District of Oklahoma.
