In July, three Edmond lawyers at the firm Crowe and Dunlevy were recognized in the “Employment Law” issue by the Best Lawyers publication. Cynthia L. Andrews, Tanya S. Bryant, and Arlen E. Fielden were named to the list, which is created each year by surveying leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.

Best Lawyers asserts it is the oldest and most respected peer-review publication in the legal profession. Attorneys are not allowed to pay a fee to be listed, and those who receive high peer reviews undergo a thorough verification process.

Award categories

Andrews was named in the Employee Benefits Law category. She is a director in Crowe & Dunlevy’s Oklahoma City office. Andrews is a graduate of Oklahoma City University School of Law and received her Master of Laws in Taxation from the New York University School of Law. She received her undergraduate degree from the University of Oklahoma.

Bryant was recognized in the Employment Law – Management and Labor and Employment categories. She is a graduate of Oklahoma City University School of Law and received her undergraduate degree from Oklahoma City University. She serves as a director in Crowe & Dunlevy’s Oklahoma City office and also serves on the board of directors of the Oklahoma City Human Resources Society as general counsel.

“I am proud of the work we do for our clients,” she said. “It’s a team effort to provide the best guidance we can to every client in every situation. I’m honored to be included on this list with so many accomplished attorneys.”

Fielden was honored in three categories: Employee Benefits Law, Employment Law – Management, and Labor and Employment. Fieldon, a director at Crowe & Dunlevy, is a graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Law and received his undergraduate degree from Oklahoma State University.
