Committed Employment Attorneys Fighting for Justice at Work™

Benjamin A. Stark

undefinedAtlanta Employment Lawyer

Benjamin A. Stark is an associate in the Trial Practice Group of Barrett & Farahany, LLP. A skilled employment law attorney in Atlanta, Benjamin fights to protect employees’ rights in matters such as discrimination, harassment, retaliation and overtime pay. Since joining Barrett & Farahany, LLP in June of 2012, Benjamin has served as Lead Counsel on dozens of cases in state court, federal court and arbitration. In June 2015, Benjamin successfully served as trial counsel in the case of Jack Lowe and Dennis Reynolds v. Atlas Logistics Group Retail Services (Atlanta), LLC, the first case in the nation to go to trial under the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA). The result was a jury verdict of over $2 million.

Prior to joining Barrett & Farahany, LLP, Benjamin worked five and a half years for the U.S. Department of Labor, Office of the Solicitor (SOL). Benjamin was initially hired for DOL as part of SOL’s Honors Program. He was the first attorney in that program to work in a regional office (Atlanta). In addition to protecting employee rights in matters such as discrimination and overtime pay, Benjamin enforced workplace safety laws such as the Occupational Safety and Health Act and employee benefit protections such as Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act. While employed by DOL, Benjamin drafted policy memos used by the entire agency, negotiated nationwide settlements with major corporations and won every matter that he took to trial.

Benjamin earned his J.D. in 2006 from Duke University School of Law, where he graduated magna cum laude in the top 15% of his class. While studying at Duke, Benjamin was an editor on the Journal of Law and Contemporary Problems and was a member of Phi Delta Phi, a legal ethics fraternity. Just before graduation, Benjamin’s classmates awarded him the Justin Miller Award for Integrity. Prior to law school, Benjamin graduated from Vanderbilt University summa cum laude with a B.A. in Political Science. At Vanderbilt, Benjamin was an occasional columnist for the student newspaper, a founding member of the student satire magazine and a member of Gamma Beta Phi, a fraternity dedicated to academic excellence and community service.

When he is not practicing law, Benjamin enjoys performing volunteer work through his church, North Avenue Presbyterian Church, watching movies, and spending as much time as he can with his wife, Christy, and their young sons, Jonathan (born 2014) and Joshua (born 2016).
