"Crowe & Dunlevy continues to serve our management clients with a full service labor and employment law practice, providing prompt and effective legal advice and litigation defense of a full range of labor and employment law issues."






Randall J. Snapp

"Whether the economy is on an upward swing or a steady swoon, the need for employment law defense remains constant. Our clients both inside and outside of Oklahoma receive practical advice that helps keep them out of litigation, and zealous trial advocacy when they find themselves in the courtroom. That is a tradition of which we are extremely proud."
