REX W. THOMPSON

Attorney at Law

Mr. Thompson has represented hard-working employees of the State of Oklahoma who have employment claims of discrimination or retaliation or who sustained an injury while performing their job. Additionally, Mr. Thompson was the firm contact and handled most of the representation of the Oklahoma Public Employees Association and its members, which at times was more than 20,000 members. Public servants of this State do not receive the credit they are due, and Mr. Thompson always enjoyed trying to right a wrongful employment action taken against them.

Mr. Thompson has also represented several employers, including banks, charter schools and several small businesses.

Outside of the firm, Mr. Thompson volunteered at Iron Gate with his 87-year old mother, Thelma; has coached baseball, football and softball in the Owasso community and spent several years on the Owasso Track and Cross Country Booster Club raising scholarship funds to help less fortunate student athletes.

Mr. Thompson earned his Juris Doctor from the University of Tulsa College of Law in 1989. He is a member of the Tulsa County Bar Association and Oklahoma Bar Association, and is admitted to practice law in all Federal District Courts in Oklahoma, including the U.S. Tax Court, and all the Courts in the State of Oklahoma.
