Very skilled litigator
Regina has done an excellent job in representing me in all of my legal matters. She is a very skilled litigator in the courtroom and is always prepared. She and her partner are always professional and have represented me for both personal and business needs. She is fair and I trust her judgement.

Responsive, Engaging and Knowlegable
Attorney Molden came highly recommend from a colleague of mine. It didn't take long for me to see why. I solicited her expertise in negotiating a medical partnership contract. She was able to help me understand and advocate what was important to my family and I. Her knowledge and communication skills were priceless. I highly recommend Attorney Molden without reservations.

Excellent Employment Lawyer, She Gets Things Done!
I am so grateful for attorney Regina Molden. Regina was gracious enough to take my case on contingency. She settled my employment lawsuit in a timely manner and helped me negotiate the settlement I deserved. Thank you again to Attorney Molden, Joan, and the other members of the team for taking care of my case.

Great outcome
I would like to start this review by stating that Molden and Associates has been a God send in my situation. I know everyone situation is different. After consulting several lawyers, Molden and Associates stood out. Regina Molden was honest and candid about my legal situation. I handed them the ball with my situation and they took off running. They were able to get my case to Federal court. She laid out my options and explained the outcomes of each option so that I was able to make a clear and informed decision. Due to COVID-19 my case was stalled in the court system. Regina was able to bring all parties together in the virtual realm for a favorable resolution. I am very happy with the law firms' integrity, honesty, professionalism and knowledge of law. I highly recommend their law services.

A TRUE GODSEND
The 5 star rating is much too low. This AMAZING attorney deserves 10 stars if not more! My previous attorney withdrew from my case (Thank you Lord) and my boyfriend who is on special assignment at Pearl Harbor ran into an old Navy buddy on base and as they were catching up on the last 12 years over lunch...long story short I was referred to Regina. Literally 2 hours after hiring her she called to say the defendants want to settle. Regina did in 2 hours what my former attorney could not do in 3 years! Not only is Regina super talented, incredibly knowledgeable, and highly respected among her peers, but she is one of the most friendliest, kind-hearted attorney you will find anywhere. It was my profound pleasure and privilege to work with Regina.

A Miracle Working Attorney
I was wrongfully terminated from an employer in South GA; for implementing and standing firm on HR Laws for a pregnant worker; who was wrongfully terminated because she could not lift up a box. My heart was broken when I was terminated for doing what was right as a Site Coordinator. I "googled" Attorney's in Atlanta, and read a review on Attorney Molden , stating she was a "super attorney"---and felt strongly to call her. To make a long story short, no only did she take the case, but she took it with grit and such knowledge and professionalism and a promise to deliver results of victory; and SHE DID. She is truly a miracle working attorney. I am forever grateful for the hard work she did on my behalf.

"An exceptional firm of great integrity!!!"
"Attorney. Molden is a very professional, straightforward, knowledgeable, informative, intentional, passionate & conscientious advocate for the employees rights that I would recommend to anyone who's rights are being violated due to the unjust indiscretions of their employers." My experience from the very beginning of the establishment of my case has been well-streamlined due to the level of professionalism her entire team of legal associates, consistent communication & patience while educating me about the enlightenment of the process as well as the importance of having a realistic level of expectation during the process of the resolution of my case. All while ensuring that I maintained accountability while presenting the facts of my case on my behalf in a prompt & timely manner to the appropriate jurisdiction, negotiated, as well as concluded with compassion, dignity & respect. "This firm has blessed me beyond measure & I am very comfortable with making a recommendation to anyone who is in need of representation to seek assistance via 'Molden & Associates' as they will get the job done."

Regina is the best
I reached out to Regina in July of 2019 regarding sexual harassment and discrimination I was facing at work. She quickly reached out and listened to my concerns and offered to represent me. Regina and her paralegals kept me updated frequently without me having to call or email, I definitely felt as though I was important. Shortly after reaching out to my previous employer, we were able to settle for an offer that I felt comfortable with. Regina definitely knows her stuff, she’s sharp!

Attorney Regina Molden and her staff did a marvelous job in handling my case. She was an excellent lawyer and very easy to talk too, pleasant and professional during the entire process.

Accomplished, Educated and Best Proficient Attorney
I spent weeks researching and speaking with several attorneys before finding the right firm with whom I felt comfortable. Attorney Molden's firm surpassed all of my fears and expectations as I not only knew after my case completed I had hired the best attorney to represent my emploment concerns but she also had the most efficient office staff. Attorney Molden listened, research and litigated my case in a way which made the outcome desirable for me. She provided honest and valuable feedback which allowed me to move forward with the best useful and accurate information. This also enabled my case to resolve very quickly ....in fact within as little as six months. I recommmended Attorney Molden to a friend prior to the completion of my case as I was overwhelmed with her step by step analysis of what I could expect. She provided unprompted updates and re-assurance every step of the way. This was vey comforting. If you're looking for a skilled, proficient, and accomplished labor attorney- don't look any further.

Post Representation Review
The professionalism and intellect of this Attorney is breathtaking. From the moment I contacted her, through hiring her to the settlement of my case, she easily understood me and made me felt like she had known me for many years. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a smart, dependable, loyal and fierce legal advocate to fight a legal battle.

i would give a six starts review
Attorney Molden helped me settle an employment case, and it was a great success! With her excellent work, I am able to get a good settlement, and move on without worries. When she called me back for the first time, I can sense her high level of energy and confidence, and her care for people. I am so thankful for her to take my case, and I told me family it is like a Godsend. When we met in person for the first time in her office, she was very pleasant with nice smiles, paying close attention to all details I described. After the meeting, I could tell she has a winning strategy already based on my situation and her knowledge of law. The process to get settlement was stressful, but knowing I am working with Rigina, the best employment Attorney in town, I had piece in mind, and the guidance from Regina were tremendously helpful. She was able to build up a good working relationship with the opposite Attorney, and that just shows her expertise in law and superior people skills. For each step of progress, she called me and explained to me in details. She always speak very positively, with a lot of warmth in her voice. We had good laughs, and she encouraged me to get my confidence back. So, besides the working relationship, we are becoming good friends. Her staff is wonderful too. I would recommend Attorney Molden and her firm to anyone who needs help.
