According to Best Lawyers, its methodology is based entirely on peer review and captures the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical and legal practice area. Since its first publishing in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence.
“Each day we work hard to minimize the abuses of power, discrimination and injustice that employees at all levels endure,” said Farahany. “This recognition from our peers shows us that the work we do — through diligent employment law practices — has made an impact. We will continue to be a strong voice and presence in helping our clients establish a secure future for themselves and their families.”
Farahany exclusively represents employees, from minimum wage workers to lawyers to executives, with a strong emphasis on sexual harassment and sexual assault litigation. Farahany has received numerous other accolades, such as helping the firm attain Best Law Firm status in U.S. News & World Report, and being named as one of National Advocates Top 100 Lawyers in Employment Law, a Super Lawyer and a Georgia Trend Legal Elite. She has also received an AV rating by the judiciary and her peers, which recognizes the highest level of professional excellence among attorneys. Additionally, she has served as president or chair of multiple bar organizations, including the Atlanta Bar Labor & Employment section, the Georgia Chapter of the National Employment Law Association and multiple women’s rights groups. Known as an attorney who handles high-profile and important cases, the media regularly follows Farahany’s work.
Roberts is devoted to representing clients in employment law matters, with a particular focus on wage and hour litigation, including individual Fair Labor Standards Act claims and large collective actions. He also dedicates his time to representing clients in traditional employment litigation.
