Atlanta Employment Attorney Amanda Farahany Recognized as a Super Lawyer for 2014

Posted by Kathy Harrington-Sullivan | Feb 28, 2014 | 0 Comments

As an attorney specializing in employment law, Amanda A. Farahany, a founding partner of Barrett & Farahany, LLP, LLP, has successfully represented individuals in employment claims, from overtime disputes to sexual harassment and racial discrimination cases. Now her work in the pursuit to protect workers' civil rights is recognized once again by a leading trade publication.

Georgia Super Lawyers Magazine has selected Farahany to the 2014 Super Lawyers list, an honor reserved for lawyers exhibiting excellence in their practice areas. Farahany was previously recognized by Super Lawyers as a Rising Star Super Lawyer in 2010, 2009 and 2005. Super Lawyersrates lawyers from 70 practice areas based on peer recognition and professional achievement. The multi-phased selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Super Lawyers reaches more than 13 million readers nationwide, including 256,000 in Georgia.

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.”

Prior to beginning her practice, Farahany clerked for the Honorable John H. Ruffin, Jr. at the Georgia Court of Appeals. Farahany serves as co-chair of the American Association of Justice Wage and Hour Litigation Group and on the Board of the Atlanta Bar Association Labor and Employment Section. She is a sought-after speaker and commentator and regularly volunteers for international relief organizations, such as Water Life Hope.
