About Ben Barrett
In more than 30 years practicing law, Ben Barrett has handled thousands of cases, including defense of personal injury cases, auto collisions, aviation crashes, premises liability, medical malpractice, and numerous employment law cases.
Originally from Ohio, Ben moved to Atlanta, GA, where he cofounded Barrett & Farahany, LLP, in January of 2001. Together with Amanda Farahany, he grew the firm from a two-attorney practice to a firm of twenty people – including ten attorneys.
In April of 2015, having built the firm to one of Atlanta’s pre-eminent employment law firms, Ben retired from practicing law and focused on guiding the next generation of attorneys. As adjunct professor at Emory University Law School, he uses his extensive experience as a successful trial lawyer to help educate third-year law students on the subject of advanced trial advocacy in gender discrimination cases.
Feeling the pull to fight for clients’ rights in employment cases again, Ben returned from retirement in 2019 and founded Ben Barrett Law.
Today, he focuses solely on employment law cases, helping clients with a range of legal issues arising from their employment. In an employment-at-will state such as Georgia, these cases require special attention and a high level of expertise that other attorneys simply do not have. If you think you may have a case, contact Ben Barrett Law today.
