Michelle L. Wein is the owner and founder of Michelle Wein Law.
Whether counseling business owners on everyday management issues or litigating complex cases, Michelle is passionate about representing employers and employees in Georgia. She has extensive experience assisting individuals and businesses with issues unique to the employment law field, including litigating wage and hour disputes, wrongful termination, retaliation, non-compete agreements, and violations of the ADA, FMLA, and ADEA in state, federal, and administrative forums like the EEOC and the Department of Labor.
