Atlanta Georgia Employment-and Consumer Law Attorneys

Consumers and employees have rights under both federal and state laws that cannot be violated. If you believe that your employer has withheld overtime or minimum wages that are owed to you, a credit reporting agency reported inaccurate information about you, a bank/creditor/debt collector provided information on your credit report that was inaccurate, or a background reporting company violated your rights with respect to a background report, please contact us.

For more than two decades, our practice has focused exclusively on Employment and Consumer Rights law. We are committed to our clients and we strive to provide the most effective representation possible. If you have concerns about a credit report, a background report, a tenant screening report, or an issue in your workplace, we are happy to discuss them with you. Call us or reach out to us using our online form.

There are very few lawyers in the U.S. who handle the kinds of cases we take on. Many lawyers say they handle credit report cases, but in actuality, very few do. We are one of the “go-to” firms in the country for credit report and employment background report cases.

Credit and background reports

In today’s digital age, companies regularly purchase background and credit reports from third-party companies to evaluate individuals for any number of purposes. These reports can affect your access to employment, loans, credit cards, mortgages, apartment rentals, and other things. Unfortunately, background reports often contain erroneous, inaccurate, incomplete, or outdated information. The Fair Credit Reporting Act attorneys at Weiner & Sand LLC have extensive experience litigating background and credit report cases and helping individuals correct the information in their background and credit reports.

Employment and wage law

Employment laws protect employees from unlawful conduct, including wage issues, discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. Additionally, many employment laws provide employees with rights for protected leave and accommodations for medical issues. The employment and wage attorneys at Weiner & Sand LLC have extensive experience litigating nearly all employment laws. Reach out to a Weiner & Sand LLC employment attorney if you believe your rights have been violated.

Frequently Asked Questions

I CAN’T PAY FOR A LAWYER. WHAT CAN I DO?

There are several options. First, consultations are free. In other words, it does not cost you anything to discuss your legal issues to understand whether you have a viable legal claim. Second, we often represent clients on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that we only receive payment of our attorneys’ fees if you recover on your legal claims.

GOING TO COURT IS GOING TO BE TIME-CONSUMING AND I’M NERVOUS. WHAT CAN I DO?

In this day and age, much of what we do as lawyers is done electronically. While you may need to go to court for a trial, there are many, many steps before that point. It actually is statistically rare for a case to go to trial. Many times, a case settles, a plaintiff wins, or a defendant wins before the case even gets to trial. The legal process is daunting, but it is our job as lawyers to explain everything to you and to make sure you understand what is happening.

MY LEGAL RIGHTS WERE VIOLATED, BUT I DON’T HAVE A LOT OF THE DOCUMENTS TO SHOW IT. WHAT CAN I DO?

To succeed in any case, you need evidence. Evidence can consist of documents, but it also can consist of testimony from witnesses. Documents are important and it would be helpful to have them. For example, it would be helpful to have your paystubs if you contend that an employer did not pay you overtime. But, if you don’t have the documents now, there are ways to obtain them during a lawsuit.

“We provide free consultation for as much time as is needed to determine whether there are viable legal claims to pursue, and we take most cases on a contingency fee basis, which means our clients do not pay attorneys’ fees unless and until they obtain a recovery.”

I AM AFRAID TO REACH OUT TO A LAWYER BECAUSE I THINK I WILL BE FIRED IF MY EMPLOYER FINDS OUT ABOUT IT. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

All discussions that we have with potential clients are kept strictly confidential. We will not divulge anything you tell us to your employer, or to anyone else without your authorization.

* Contingent attorneys’ fees refers only to those fees charged by attorneys for their legal services. Such fees are not permitted in all types of cases. Court costs and other additional expenses of legal action usually must be paid by the client.

Even if you are not sure of the law and whether your rights have been violated, we would be pleased to discuss your concerns with you.
