Remarked Farahany, “To be recognized by my peers and selected to the Georgia Super Lawyers list is truly an honor. Knowing that Barrett & Farahany's work toward the protection of workers' rights is the catalyst behind this recognition makes the distinction that much more gratifying. The Super Lawyers list gives us another opportunity to spotlight the issues of harassment, discrimination and wage inequality in today's workplace.”
