About Elizabeth

Learn Elizabeth’s areas of practice.

After graduating near the top of my law school class, I returned to my hometown to begin practicing law at the Fulcher Law Firm. I honed my litigation skills defending individuals and businesses in a variety of disputes.  My practice evolved to include complex cases, such as the defense of class action lawsuits and high stakes transportation litigation.

 

I have experience in many aspects of employment law, including the ADA, ADEA, and Title VII.  I have helped employers navigate through the minefields of the FMLA and FLSA and have provided advice regarding discipline and termination of employees.  I have drafted employee handbooks for a number of local businesses and also have defended against EEOC charges and unemployment claims.

 

 

Outside of my professional career, I have been actively involved in the community.  Over the years, I have volunteered locally with the Children’s Hospital at MCG, Trinity Hospice, and the Family Y as well as with the Missionaries of Charity Gift of Grace AIDS home in Atlanta.  I have also been involved with the American Cancer Society Relay for Life.  In 1999, I was nominated for the Alvin W. Vogtle CSRA Volunteer of the Year Award.

Medical Malpractice Case
Mrs. McLeod represented me in a medical malpractice case I was involved in. It was my first time being sued and so I had no clue what to expect. From the time of our initial contact, Mrs. McLeod not only did an amazing job representing me, but also explaining the "process" and helping me navigate through this immensely stressful situation for the first time. Her professionalism was exceptional, but what really surprised me was her empathy and compassion. I could truly tell she wanted a good outcome for me almost as a friend would hope things went well for me. She did amazing and helped me get a great outcome in my case. I would have no problem strongly recommending Mrs. Mcleod.

Client Review
Beth and her team have always proven that the purpose and goal is to take care of the client. My experiences working with her have always been pleasurable. She is always available for a call and provides answers quickly. She is able to jump in feet first and handle all my needs. She is very knowledgeable in the area of workers compensation and I would highly recommend her to all of my colleagues. In addition to her work ethic, she has a fabulous personality, speaks confidently and is forthright with her advice!

Excellent Attorney
In the area of employment law, I highly recommend Beth McLeod. On occasion I will engage Beth to review an employment matter for our company. I have found every situation to be different and she works very hard to determine the best approach in handling the various matters.

Professional, Warm, Thorough,
Beth was the perfect choice in a defense attorney for me. She was friendly, non-judgemental, and professional. She was also tenacious in court.
