At Ironside Law Firm, we represent clients with legal needs involving Private Employment, Federal Employment, Employment Compliance and Litigation, Union Member Representation, Title IX Litigation, Workers' Compensation, and Personal Injury. For an in-depth description, please see the practice categories below.

PRIVATE EMPLOYMENT



Anti-discrimination laws protect Oklahomans who are working for a private employer (not part of the government). It can feel overwhelming to face discrimination at work and fight against unjust consequences or termination. Christina is ready to protect employees’ rights and provide victims of discrimination, retaliation and unjust dismissal with the most effective legal tools available. 


FEDERAL EMPLOYMENT



Christina is determined to keep her clients’ rights protected when they face workplace harassment or adverse events. She defends federal sector employees in matters including workplace discrimination, harassment, discipline, removal, retaliation, whistleblowing, and more. Christina has navigated matters for federal civilian personnel against the Veterans Administration, the Air Force, the FAA, and the Army.

EMPLOYMENT COMPLIANCE & LITIGATION


Christina represents clients in employment advice and counseling, before administrative tribunals, and in civil litigation. Her experience includes matters brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, Oklahoma’s non-compete and non-solicitation statutes, and Oklahoma’s workers’ compensation laws. She assists with in-house investigations, audits, and claims, including those involving the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Department of Labor, Workers’ Compensation Commission, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Christina represents federal employees before the Merit Systems Protection Board, grievance proceedings, and arbitration. 

WORKERS' COMPENSATION



Christina is ready to mount a strong defense strategy for employers facing Workers’ Compensation claims in Oklahoma. She works with small businesses, insurance companies, third-party administrators, government entities, and larger corporations across multiple industries. No matter the employer, her goal is the same: to reduce exposure, costs, and time tied up in costly litigation.

Christina’s clients include local employers and carriers as well as those with a national presence. With 15 years of experience in the field, she has conducted internal investigations, negotiated settlements, provided review of claims for mass closure in other states, and taken lawsuits through the appellate process. Matters include subrogation claims for negligent third-party injuries and retaliatory discharge complaints. She regularly appears before the Court of Existing Claims (CEC) and the Workers’ Compensation Commission (WCC).

Christina is available to educate workplace leaders regarding Oklahoma’s Administrative Workers’ Compensation Act and the best employment practices to guard against liability.
