Steven E. Wolfe
I have devoted my entire legal career to helping individuals stand up to their employers. I help people fight for overtime pay that their employers have illegally denied them. I help people overcome unlawful workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. I help people negotiate severances and new employment contracts. I do not represent victims. I represent people who have the courage to make things right.
After nearly ten years handling individual rights cases at other firms, I joined my partners to form Legare, Attwood & Wolfe, LLC. I have 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.
I grew up in Hamilton Township, Pennsylvania where, so far as I know, there are still no traffic lights. As the son of an attorney and a public school teacher, I learned from an early age that different careers bring different challenges and rewards, and that valuable work takes many forms. After college at Boston University, I moved to Atlanta for Emory Law School. I have proudly called the city home ever since.
As a child, I dreamed of becoming an astronaut. In college, I even tried to design a zero gravity experiment so NASA would let me fly on its weightless training aircraft, the “Vomit Comet.” Only my poor eyesight, terrible math skills, and the fact that children’s amusement park rides make me dizzy dashed my hopes of flying in space.
Later, when I discovered my love of politics and philosophy, I was set to follow my father’s footsteps into the law. Since my father also cursed me with a life-long love of Philadelphia sports teams, which has caused me immeasurable misery, I consider us even.
I live in Atlanta’s Northlake neighborhood with my wife, Cristiane, who is a brilliant corporate attorney, my sons, Jake and Caleb, and my two dogs. I love hiking, photography, and reading history or anything to do with the space program. I also enjoy watching horrendous science fiction movies, picking up heavy things, and playing the piano very badly. I am more than halfway to my goal of hiking in every national park in North America.
