Today on the podcast, Robin and Lester interview Cheryl Legare and Steven Wolfe of Legare, Attwood and Wolfe who focus on employment law.
Cheryl Legare’s practice focuses on representing employees in all aspects of employment law, including claims of disability discrimination and retaliation, sexual harassment, FMLA interference and retaliation, gender, pregnancy, race, religion, national origin, age discrimination, and wage and hour disputes. She also represents individuals in contract negotiations and employment separation negotiations.
Cheryl is active in the Georgia Association for Women Lawyers, the Atlanta Bar Association, the State Bar of Georgia. She founded GAWL’s Solo/Small Firm Affinity Group and is a past president for GAWL. Cheryl is also a member of the

Circuits, and the United States Supreme Court. Cheryl lives with her cat Dixie and dogs Luna and Molly in Decatur, Georgia. In her spare time, Cheryl enjoys spending time with friends, listening to live music, and traveling.
Steven has devoted his entire legal career to helping individuals stand up to their employers. He helps people fight for overtime pay that their employers have illegally denied them. He helps people overcome unlawful workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation and helps people negotiate severances and new employment contracts. Steve has successfully represented people from all walks of life, from all industries, and on all rungs of the corporate ladder, from entry level to C-level. Steve attended Boston University for undergraduate and then Emory Law School. Steve is married to his wife, Cristiane, who is a corporate attorney, has two sons, Jake and Caleb, and two dogs.
