Rob Reid

Rob has practiced employment law for over twenty-four years. In 2007, he opened his own law firm exclusively representing employees (and some small businesses) in employment-related litigation.

Before opening his own law firm, Rob defended some of the largest employers in the United States for over thirteen years. While doing so, Rob noticed that there was a chronic shortage of quality attorneys protecting the rights of employees. With his natural inclination to represent the underdog, Rob decided to use his experience to help employees who are treated unfairly in the workplace.

Rob is admitted to practice in all Georgia courts and the U.S. District Courts for the Northern, Southern, and Middle districts, as well as the Eleventh Circuit of Appeals.

Besides practicing law, Rob is the busy father of six boys and one girl. His wife Melissa works with him as a paralegal.

Melissa Reid

While helping Rob coordinate audio and video evidence for a civil service trial for a firefighter in 2009, she caught the bug of helping Rob restore dignity to individuals who have been treated unfairly in the workplace. Since that time, she has been working with Rob as his paralegal.

Previously, Melissa owned a tutoring business in Roswell, Georgia. As Rob’s law firm grew, she filled a need as his paralegal and moved away from her tutoring business. Melissa’s love and passion for people, as well as her desire to “do the right thing,” has made her job as an employment law paralegal extremely fulfilling.

As the intake paralegal for the firm, Melissa begins building a relationship with our clients from your first phone call with us. She works hard to help our clients understand the process and to gather the documents and other evidence we need to win your case.

Our Family

Rob and Melissa live in Marietta, Georgia in East Cobb County. They are the proud parents of six boys and one girl. Rob and Melissa are fortunate to live near each set of parents and most of their siblings. When they aren’t busy with helping their clients, there is always something going on with their kids and family.

Rob and Melissa choose clients they believe in and truly care about your case.
