Atlanta Employment & Civil Rights Attorneys
Fighting for workplace equality for employees in Georgia
Everyone deserves a fair shake, they say. Here, you can be what you want, do what you want, and live the life that you want. This is the core tenet of our nation – that here, you have every opportunity to become the best version of yourself.
Buckley Bala Wilson Mew LLP is committed to this cause. And because we believe that equality in the workplace matters, our team fights to hold employers accountable when their actions or policies put your civil rights in jeopardy. From factory floors to C-Suite offices, from executive contract negotiations to winning a landmark anti-discrimination case before the United States Supreme Court, our attorneys in Atlanta are unwavering in our commitment to our clients. We earned our reputation as leaders in employment law and civil rights litigation – not only from the cases we’ve won, but from the cases we take. When you need help, we are your advocates.
Litigation is never an easy choice when you believe you have been wronged and overcoming the emotion of the situation is often the greatest battle. Throughout the process, I felt as though they remained mindful of my investment in their services, while maintaining prompt responsiveness. In conclusion they were able to negotiate a very acceptable settlement on my behalf and I would highly recommend the firm. – Google review
Our Atlanta employment lawyers want to protect your rights
“We must respect the dignity and worth of every human being.” – John Lewis
At Buckley Bala Wilson Mew LLP, some of the hardest working people we have ever met are the clients who come to our law firm with an employment law issue. Opposing workplace discrimination, retaliation, and other civil rights violations is personal for us. Founding Partner, Ed Buckley’s father, Ferdinand Buckley, was inspired to fight for equality after flying missions in WWII under the cover of the valiant Tuskegee Airmen. That fighting spirit was passed down to Ed Buckley and is the foundation from which our firm was built. We will fight for you.
We all know that there are laws in place meant to protect employees from workplace misconduct. Yet, all too often, this misconduct goes unreported. According to a recent Gallup study, employees identified waste of time, fear, and unclear reporting procedures as the top reasons why they don’t share their experience with workplace misconduct with others. Our team of talented attorneys is here to help you analyze your legal claims, navigate corporate procedures, and apply our expert knowledge of laws and regulations. You don’t have to go suffer in silence. We will advocate for you.

Georgia attorneys handling civil rights violations
Civil rights, in the language of the law, are our personal rights as protected by the Constitution and through legislation at the federal and state level. Most folks associate civil rights and civil justice as the fight against discrimination in all forms, but it’s a much bigger issue than that.

- It is our lawyers who hold employers and other organizations and entities accountable for sexual assault.
- It is our team of Atlanta litigators who will fight back against cases of police shootings and brutality.
- It was our Atlanta lawyers who took Bostock v. Clayton County, GA all the way to the Supreme Court to ensure workplace protections from discrimination for LGBTQ+ individuals under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
