About Arkansas Employment Law


My hope is that this site provides practical information regarding the latest developments in employment law.  Because I have the privilege of living and practicing law in Arkansas, this site will focus on the development of employment law in Arkansas. Additionally, I’m also interested in employment issues as they develop in other parts of the country.

I have practiced employment law for fifteen years, and I currently spend most of my time working on employment litigation.  I also worked in-house for eight years as employment counsel at Alltel Communications, Inc., a Fortune 500 company.  As in-house counsel, I learned the importance of providing legal services in a cost-effective manner.  I developed my employment litigation skills as a Senior Associate in the Employment Law Group of Davis Wright Tremaine, a 400-attorney firm headquartered in Seattle, Washington.

The employment law services Cox, Sterling & McClure can provide include:
  • Representation of employees and employers in all aspects of employment litigation, mediation, and arbitration, including EEOC and DOL charges and investigations.
  • Negotiation and drafting of employment agreements, including executive compensation agreements, employee separation agreements, bonus and retention plans, intellectual property agreements, and confidentiality/non-competition agreements.
  • Providing employment-related due diligence for business acquisitions, including review of employment policies and practices, existing litigation, and charges of discrimination.
  • Enforcing and challenging non-competition agreements.

I practice law with my friends and partners, Cade Cox and David Sterling. We attended law school together and have each been practicing since 1997.  We often work together to provide the best solution for our business clients. You can learn more about our practice at Cox, Sterling & McClure, PLLC.
