Atlanta metro area attorneys representing employees in Georgia and throughout the United States
Employment law is a specific niche which involves representing employees in mediation, filing complaints with a number of government agencies, or filing a Federal lawsuit in District Court. Cases may revolve around issues such as employment discrimination, a worker being wrongly reprimanded, violations of the Family Medical Leave Act, and more. These types of cases tend to have particular procedures which must be followed before initiating a lawsuit. If such procedures are not followed then the employee may lose their right to recourse. Retaining legal representation, which is versed in these areas of the law, will be crucial to the outcome of your case.
Our employment lawyers are experienced in assisting employees in cases against their employers. This is true whether it is a State Court case heard in Georgia or a Federal matter heard anywhere throughout the country. Types of matters we handle include:
- Employment claims made in Federal Court
- VA claims throughout the United States on behalf of our veterans
- Cases involving discrimination against employees
- Matters involving other violations by Atlanta area employers
We work quickly to protect our clients’ interests.
