Our practice group has what is believed to be the largest public employer defense practice in the State of Georgia. We have represented over 250 public entities throughout the State of Georgia, including cities, counties, sheriff’s offices, school districts, water authorities, housing authorities, economic development and tourism authorities, and other local governmental entities for all types of public sector employment claims and civil service disputes.
As a part of this representation, we have worked closely with and defended hundreds of city council members, county commissioners, mayors, city and county managers, sheriffs, police chiefs, and other members of the public sector in suits by employees. Our representation of public entities includes the typical discrimination claim under the federal civil rights statutes, as well as constitutional claims for deprivation of due process, denial of equal protection and free speech, and other constitutional-based claims.
