Wish I'd met her sooner!
Atty. Golan gave me an opportunity to provide all the information necessary and then she reviewed it. I had a pressing and impromptu matter that required I speak with her ASAP, and she obliged and made the time to speak with me. Conversation was smooth and easy. SHE listened and gave her honest opinion. Although we did not establish a client-lawyer relationship at this time, she still gave me nuggets of information that will indeed help me. Please Please, if you come across this attorney, CALL her. She will be a blessing to whomever she represents. You will not always get her type of integrity these days. I am glad to have come across this attorney. Also, her assistant-Ms. Lawrence, worked diligently to make sure all information was submitted to atty and has great follow-through. They make a great team and this is what you need in any type litigation.

This Consultation Gave me Peace of Mind!
I met with Ms. Lisa Golan recently about issues related to ADA and FMLA . I went in for a consultation to better understand my legal rights as it related to my particular circumstances. Ms. Golan explained so clearly how these laws are interpreted in Georgia. She mentions on her website that she wants to give people the tools they need to advocate for themselves. After the consultation, I felt that Ms. Golan provided me with tools (in the form of accurate info) that I can use to advocate for myself in my situation. I had a list of questions for the consultation and she answered everyone of them thoroughly. In the future should I need legal representation in ADA/FMLA, she would be the first person I would call. Also, she strikes me as someone who genuinely cares about the people she represents.

"I know Lisa to be a highly competent employment lawyer, especially in the area of disability and disability discrimination law. Lisa is always my "go to" person when I have a client with needs in this area."
Employment and labor Attorney | Nov 11
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Lisa is a respected colleague in the field of employment law. She and I have served on an employment lawyers' board together. Though she is competent in employment law generally, she has a superb reputation among those of us practicing in the field for her knowledge in areas pertaining to medical issues (such as disability claims, family and medical leave, etc.) I recommend her."
