Committed Employment Attorneys Fighting for Justice at Work™

V. Severin Roberts

undefinedDedicated Atlanta Employment Lawyer

Severin Roberts is a Partner at Barrett & Farahany, LLP and the head of the Wage and Hour group. Severin’s practice is devoted to representing clients in employment law matters, with a particular focus in wage and hour litigation, including individual FLSA claims and large collective actions. An equally significant portion of Severin’s practice is dedicated to representing clients in traditional employment litigation, including claims of sexual harassment, violations of the Family Medical Leave Act (“FMLA”), and gender, pregnancy, race, age, and disability discrimination.

Prior to joining Barrett & Farahany, LLP, Severin worked at a boutique litigation firm, where he gained extensive experience representing plaintiffs and defendants in employment, tort, and commercial litigation cases, including actions brought under The Fair Labor Standards Act, Title VII race, gender, retaliation, and religious discrimination, 42 U.S .C. § 1981, 42 U.S.C § 1983 (claims brought under the 1st, 4th, 5th and 14th Amendments to the United States Constitution), the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and the Equal Pay Act.

One of Severin’s recent successes was achieved at trial in an overtime case that was highlighted on the front page of The Daily Report. The judge pointed out that the experience, reputation, and the ability of the plaintiff’s attorneys were among the factors supporting his finding that the company had to pay the plaintiff’s attorney’s fees.

Severin is a graduate of Tulane University Law School and a member of the Georgia Bar. While in law school, Severin was selected to serve in Tulane’s Domestic Violence Litigation Clinic, through which he represented victims of domestic violence in a variety of civil litigation matters. Severin is admitted to practice in the Northern and Middle Federal District Courts of Georgia, the 11th Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, the State of Georgia Court of Appeals, and the Georgia Supreme Court. Severin is an Atlanta native, an avid fan of the Atlanta Falcons, and spends his free time playing sports, watching movies, and trying new restaurants around the city.
