Bio overview

Paige Hoster Good is a trial attorney who represents employers in all phases of labor and employment law, including litigation before state and federal courts, regulatory and administrative agencies, and arbitration panels. In addition to defending lawsuits filed under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Family and Medical Leave Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Fair Labor Standards Act, she also represents clients by defending charges of discrimination investigated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and other state agencies.

Moreover, Paige counsels clients on various employment-related issues, including: preventing wrongful discharge claims; implementing anti-discrimination, anti-harassment and anti-retaliation policies and practices; drafting and auditing employment, non-solicitation and confidentiality agreements; defending state wage and hour claims; drug and alcohol testing; employee handbook and policy development; advising on hiring, discipline, and termination decisions; as well as litigation avoidance and compliance with other federal and state laws. She also advises employers on drafting and enforcing confidentiality, non-solicitation and non-competition agreements and has represented clients in trade secret litigation and related common law claims for misappropriation of confidential information.

A portion of her practice is devoted to general civil and business litigation.

Paige’s achievements have earned her inclusion in Oklahoma Super Lawyers’ list of “Oklahoma Rising Stars,” which recognizes the state’s top up-and-coming attorneys.

While pursuing her law degree, she served as a legal extern for the Honorable Michael Tupper of the District Court of Cleveland County, worked as a legal intern for the Oklahoma Attorney General Office’s Victims Services and Criminal Appeals Units, and served as Chief Counsel of the OU Legal Clinic.
