Doerner Saunders Adds Employment Attorney in OKC Office
Tod J. Barrett will be joining the Firm on January 15, 2012. His practice is concentrated in employment law and employment litigation, and he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience.
Early in his career, Tod served as a Trial Attorney and then Senior Trial Attorney for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in Dallas, Texas, where he prosecuted employment discrimination cases against some of the nation's largest companies and largest law firms, including a nationwide statistical class action case against a Fortune 500 company. He went on to serve as a federal Administrative Judge with the EEOC.
He then returned to Oklahoma to join a large law firm where he practiced exclusively employment defense work, successfully defending an array of clients in employment cases, including Fortune 500 companies, a large Oklahoma school district, and a State agency and its Director in a political retaliation case.
Tod subsequently left the full time practice of law to pursue other business and personal interests, returning in 2011 to join Oklahoma's Attorney General as an Assistant Attorney General, where he has successfully defended numerous State agencies and State officials in employment and constitutional cases.
In addition to practicing law, Tod is a small business owner and has served on numerous boards, both civic and arts related, in Norman and Oklahoma City. He lives in Norman with his wife of 26 years. They have two children, ages 20 and 18.
With Doerner Saunders, Tod will be representing and defending employers in various employment matters such as charges before the EEOC or Oklahoma Human Rights Commission as well as discrimination and retaliation lawsuits in state and federal court.
