Steve Wolfe has nearly two decades’ experience representing people from all walks of life, from all industries, and at all income levels. He has devoted most of his career to representing plaintiffs, though he has also represented defendants and counseled small businesses on employment issues. In all aspects of his practice, Steve prioritizes getting to know and understand the people, businesses, and issues involved on all sides of a dispute. He focuses on assisting with practical, experience-based assessments and problem solving.

As an advocate, Steve specializes in employment discrimination, sexual harassment, wage and hour law, restrictive covenants, executive separations, and other conflicts between employers and employees. Steve has also worked in a range of other areas, including First Amendment, whistleblower, false arrest, and police misconduct cases. He is equally at home with public and private sector disputes.

After practicing with two prominent Atlanta employment law firms, Steve co-founded the firm Legare, Attwood & Wolfe, LLC in 2015. He has earned numerous peer recognitions, including a consistent AV Preeminent Rating, a consistent place on the Georgia Super Lawyers list, and an “On the Rise” Award from the Fulton County Daily Report. Steve has tried cases to favorable verdicts in federal and state courts, successfully argued appeals before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the Georgia Supreme Court, and reached favorable settlements in multiple collective actions for unpaid overtime wages.

Steve serves on the Board of the Atlanta Volunteer Lawyers Foundation and the Atlanta Bar Association’s Labor & Employment Section. He is also a past-president and board member of the National Employment Lawyers Association’s Georgia affiliate.
