WORKPLACE DISPUTE? FIGHT BACK! CALL TODAY FOR A FREE CASE EVALUATION

Outstanding results at a fair price! We specialize in resolving workplace disputes in the most cost-effective manner. Our experienced team handles virtually all issues involving the employment relationship, including cases involving wrongful termination, discrimination, wage/hour and overtime pay, sexual harassment/hostile work environment, employment agreements, non-compete agreements, disability and medical leave, retaliation/whistleblower protection, workplace violence, health and safety regulations, breach of contract, misappropriation of trade secrets, breach of fiduciary duty, and other business torts. 

 

We frequently advise and represent employees who have been offered severance packages. We review the proposed severance agreement, provide our feedback on the fairness and reasonableness of its terms, and handle negotiations with the employer. We are very experienced in the fast-growing area of wage/hour and overtime disputes under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Unlike most Atlanta employment law firms, we represent federal government employees in connection with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) complaints and also have a niche practice of representing physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals in employment matters. 

 

We understand that litigation is a long and costly process that may be unattractive to many. Accordingly, when possible, we utilize efficient, cost-effective alternatives to litigation, such as settlement negotiations, mediation and arbitration. We also represent employees in civil service board appeals and unemployment appeal hearings before the Georgia Department of Labor. 

 

Our philosophy is simple—provide the highest quality of legal services at a fair price. Mr. Fidlon graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Law School in 1998 and has been practicing exclusively in labor and employment law since. He is also a licensed CPA. Mr. Fidlon and the lawyers at Fidlon Legal bring a wealth of knowledge, experience and practical know-how to the table. We are tireless advocates for our clients, both inside and outside of the courtroom. We understand that finding a lawyer is not an easy process.

Outstanding Employment Attorney in the Atlanta Area
OUTSTANDING! Don't look anywhere else for an exceptional attorney to represent you in an employment related claim. I had an extremely complex issue to navigate, and Greg took the time and made the effort required to fully understand the circumstances, my position, and all of the underlying details. He was very straightforward with our agreement, billing, and I knew exactly what to expect. Let's face it - none of us want to have to retain an attorney... but if you do, I can't recommend a better one - Greg Fidlon exceeded my expectations in all respects - very well done.

Greg Fidlon is an excellent attorney and advocate.
I first met with Greg Fidlon years ago for an employment matter. He worked very diligently on my case. It got to the point that he remembered the details of the case even better than I did. He was an exceptional advocate and had an amazing tenacity. He was really professional at all times, and saw the matter through to the very end. We settled the case in the end which was amazing. I very much highly recommend Mr. Greg Fidlon.

Excellent!
I had a rush deadline and double-checked with Greg on a phone call first, and I knew immediately he was going to be the perfect employment lawyer for me. He read my long emails and answered all my questions in a detailed fashion, and I felt at ease. I browsed around online for a good lawyer, and his website was very helpful and provided great resources and information. I highly recommend Greg to everyone; he is an exceptional employment attorney. I appreciated Greg's wealth of knowledge; he responds very quickly and is level-headed. He represented my legal needs in a professional and strategic manner, with very successful results. Please look no further; he is the best! I can move on with my life now and am so happy to have worked with him.

RESPONSIVE AND SUPER HELPFUL!
I contacted Greg Fidlon to provide me with guidance on unemployment benefits issues. Greg promptly responded and was beyond helpful. He answered all of my questions - and I had many! But I didn't feel rushed by him. He listened and provided great feedback and insight. I would highly recommend Greg to anyone for assistance with unemployment issues, as well as any other employment matter. He knows what he's doing! Thanks, Greg!

Excellent attorney!!
My wife and I called in and got a consultation. Not only was Greg 100% knowledgeable, but he also gave real advice rather than just saying hire me. He helped us understand the situation my wife was in and gave us the best shot to resolution moving forward. His expertise is very appreciated, and we are very hopeful that things will go in our favor. Employer issues are never never easy, especially when you feel like you’re being hustled from all sides. I applaud excellent service, and he is our go-to guy in the future as well.

Excellent Service
Greg Fidlon’s name was given to me by my sister-in-law. Contacting him was one of the best decisions I ever made. He was thorough, got all the information he would need to help me with my case; even ones I didn’t think about. He was efficient, professional and brilliant. He represented me during my interview, asking all the right questions. I really appreciate all the help I received. I would not have won my case if it wasn’t for Greg Fidlon. I would definitely recommend him.

Thorough objective counsel
Greg was great throughout the entire process. He is thorough, honest, and great in communicating your position and the possible position of the accused party. This helps to manage your expectations and prepare for what could possibly come next. I appreciate the fact that he plays devils advocate when building your case, to ensure that you have a solid ground to stand on and you aren’t just overzealously chasing a case off emotion. We got a better than expected result from my case and I would emphatically recommend him to future clients.

Honest, Highly Ethical and Prohessional
I found myself in a situation while not illegal was very unethical. Greg’s manner in walking me through my situation and what was and was not achievable made the difference. I found Greg to be highly ethical, professional, responsive and too the point

Honest, Methodical, and Thorough
When I started my search for an attorney I had hoped I would find one who made me feel like my issue was as important to them as it was for me. I needed them to be thorough, gain full understanding of my needs, and act in a manner that best represented who I was and what I stood for. I was so lucky in finding Greg and could not have asked for more. Not only was he thorough and methodical, but really spent the time necessary to understand my needs and represent me in an honest manner. His follow-up was impeccable, I knew that I would receive an email or follow-up as we approached and passed a key point in the process. Thank you Greg for exceeding my expectations.

Successful Outcome
I recently hired Attorney Greg Fridlon to represent me on a Department of Labor appeal case. I had concerns about which attorney to hire but glad I chose Fridlon's law firm. Mr. Fridlon conducts business professionally and is exact (to the point) and he was successful in winning the case.

Honest and Great results!
Greg is extremely professional and to the point. He is well versed in employment law and took the time to explain things. He was prompt in returning my emails. My first phone interview I felt like he was going against me with every answer I gave. Simply because Greg questioned every answer I gave and ask even more questions from that answer. But I later realized that is his job and I would want any lawyer that was going to represent me to do that. Greg wants to make sure he has all the facts on the case and fairly represent you. My case had a great outcome!

Employment Law Representation
Greg Fidlon was recommended to me by a close friend who recently separated from his employer. I hired Greg to similarly advise me on my separation agreement. Greg is n extremely knowledgeable employment lawyer who has reviewed hundreds of severance agreements. I engaged Greg to negotiate the separation agreement initially presented by my former employer as their "standard aggrement". I engage Greg to negotiate on my behalf because the initial offer appeared to be a "low ball", and I wanted to send a message that the company needed to take me seriously. I highly recommend Greg Fidlon. I found him to be a skilled negotiator, experienced in the "give and take" pressure points. For example, he knew to ask for compensation elements such as the employer paying my COBRA premiums during the severance period. Additionally, he managed my expectations by mapping out the negotiating plan in advance, keepimg me informed of our progreas, and providing real-time advice and options in response to the employer's evolving negotiating tactics. The final result was a big win that far surpassed my expectations.

Honesty
After having so many bad experiences with lawyers in different practices and in many counties, I have learned that honesty and ethics are the main values that a lawyer need to embrace and I found these two values in the practice of attorney Fidlon. When I contacted attorney Greg I thought I had the biggest discrimination Case in the country against my former employer, but attorney Greg was honest and clear to instruct me on the facts of what in reality my case represented. I appreciate that he was professional enough to not make me lose time and money and he represented me well in front of my former employer to review the Severance package that I was offer, during the communications with my former employer I was copied and informed. I will recommend attorney Greg Fidlon to anyone that is looking to hire an honest and knowledgeable professional.

Exceptional Federal Employment Attorney
I have had the pleasure to work with Mr. Greg Fidlon on my federal EEO retaliation case, which lasted for 2.5 yrs. I find him very knowledgeable, hardworking and thorough in his areas of expertise. Although my case was a difficult one, Mr. Fidlon successfully negotiated a settlement with the Agency through EEOC mediation. I am very happy with his services and I highly recommend him for federal EEO cases. He is very professional, highly responsive, and above all, a true gentleman.
