Connor Curtis is a trial lawyer who counsels and represents employers and management exclusively in all areas of labor and employment law, including litigation before state and federal courts, arbitration panels, and regulatory and administrative agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

Connor’s litigation practice involves assisting clients in resolving a broad range of disputes arising from the employer-employee relationship, including claims under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the National Labor Relations Act. As part of her counseling practice, she regularly advises clients on best practices for avoiding litigation and for complying with a myriad of state and federal laws, including those concerning wage and hour issues, anti-discrimination and anti-harassment, interviewing and hiring, discipline and discharge, approved leave, proper classification of workers, disability and religious accommodations, employee handbook policies, drug and alcohol testing, restrictive covenants, and workplace investigations.

After earning her undergraduate degree in history from the University of Oklahoma in 2017, Connor worked for two years as a high school teacher in Guymon, Oklahoma, where she taught U.S. history, world history, Oklahoma history, psychology, and financial literacy for English Second Language students was voted “favorite teacher” by the school’s ESL population. Drawing inspiration from her students, she then decided to further her own education by going to law school.

The Oklahoma native went on to graduate summa cum laude from the Oklahoma City University School of Law in 2023. While pursuing her Juris Doctor, she was named a Hatton W. Sumners Scholar, worked on the staff of the Oklahoma City University Law Review, and was the recipient of the OBA Excellence in Litigation Award and 12 CALI awards for academic excellence. She also worked as a judicial extern for the Honorable Jodi W. Dishman of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma.
