attorney Rachel Berlin BenjaminRachel Berlin Benjamin

Rachel Berlin Benjamin works tirelessly to fight for employees’ rights and prides herself in providing clients with high-quality and compassionate representation. Rachel primarily represents employees who have been subjected to unlawful discrimination and retaliation. She also prosecutes wage and hour disputes and effectively negotiates severance agreements.

Rachel has extensive litigation experience in both state and federal courts. Rachel and her former partner achieved a substantial jury verdict, including all of the plaintiff’s lost wages. After a week-long trial, the jury found that there was a willful violation of the Age Discrimination in Employment Act and her client was awarded the maximum amount of damages allowed by the law. Last year, she also represented victims of egregious sexual harassment and secured a seven figure settlement on their behalf.

Rachel has also achieved numerous notable results on account of her significant appellate experience and has contributed to successful appeals to the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Rachel represented a school bus driver in a disability claim and drafted the appellate brief that was instrumental in convincing the Eleventh Circuit to revive the driver’s claim. Rachel also played a critical role in the Eleventh Circuit’s revival of an age discrimination claim as well as a Title VII retaliation claim.

Rachel B. Benjamin is Not Afraid to Fight the Big Fights

Rachel has taken on the Atlanta Police Department in its refusal to change its facial hair policy, which has prevented officers from being able to serve and protect their communities. This will hopefully give similarly situated police officers the ability to proudly serve Atlanta in the future.

Rachel has also successfully litigated wage and hour claims and has helped secure multi-million dollar settlements in numerous collective and class action lawsuits in federal courts across the nation. 

Before practicing employment law, Rachel was an Assistant District Attorney in Bronx, New York where she prosecuted misdemeanors and violent felonies. As a prosecutor, Rachel conducted hearings and trials, presented cases to Grand Jury panels for indictment, and negotiated pleas.

Rachel’s Background

Rachel graduated magna cum laude from Pace Law School and received her Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College. Rachel is a member of the State Bars of Georgia and New York, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, and federal district courts in New York and Georgia. Rachel is also a member of the National Employment Lawyers Association and is passionate about raising money to help find a cure for Parkinson’s Disease.

When Rachel isn’t working, she enjoys exploring Atlanta, spending time with her husband and two young kids, attempting to achieve Yelp’s “elite” status, and visiting her family in New York.
