Earnest Legal Representation

Helping Georgia Workers Fight For Their Legal Rights

At Henefeld & Green, P.C., we help hardworking people enforce their legal rights against discrimination, sexual harassment, and wrongful termination. As an employee, you have rights under both Georgia and federal law. Our skilled and experienced attorneys are here to help you enforce those rights and fight for rightful compensation.

Employment law is constantly changing. We keep up to date on the ever-evolving regulations related to key federal statutes like the Family and Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Fair Labor Standards Act, Equal Employment Opportunity Act, and ERISA, as well as state laws like the Georgia Whistleblower Act. Our thorough understanding of the law lets us represent you with accurate advice and strong advocacy.

We represent both employees and employers throughout metro Atlanta and the rest of Georgia. This gives us insight into how employers and their defense attorneys operate when an employee sues them, so we can anticipate their strategy and plan accordingly. We tailor our strategy to each client’s individual experience and needs. If your professional career has been impacted or outright derailed by illegal employer misconduct, we can advise you on your best options for financial recovery.

Challenging Every Type Of Workplace Misconduct

As employment law attorneys, we are prepared to represent you in any type of case, including:

  • Illegal discrimination based on your sex, age, race, religion or inclusion in another protected class
  • Sexual harassment, including demands for sexual favors, quid pro quo offers and toxic work environments
  • Whistleblower retaliation
  • Wage and overtime disputes
  • Wrongfully denied parental and medical leave
  • Wrongful termination

Founded in 1991 as Appelbaum & Associates, our firm has a long history of success fighting for workers’ rights.

Some of our biggest recent successes include:

  • Represented a mid-level worker who was wrongfully terminated from a Fortune 500 company and recovered a significant amount over six figures.
  • Successfully demanded a settlement over six figures for an executive at a large national corporation who was sexually assaulted.
  • Defended Atlanta District Attorney Paul Howard in a sexual harassment trial in federal court and won a full acquittal from the jury.

Our decades of collective experience give us a unique insight into employee rights, which helps us prepare the strongest possible claim on your behalf.
