Focused on your defense in housing and employment discrimination claims
Because we do not represent tenants, we place all our efforts toward defending our owner and management clients against lawsuits and claims. We work with clients throughout the Southeastern U.S., including Georgia, Florida, Arkansas, Texas, North Carolina and South Carolina, ensuring they have skilled, experienced litigation defense. We are also one of the nation's most respected housing discrimination law firms, and are routinely engaged by clients throughout the U.S. for legal help in this critical area of apartment law.

Our attorneys also bring their skills and focus to defending clients who are embroiled in suits claiming employment discrimination or harassment. While much of our work in this area is for our property management clients, we have helped business owners and companies in Georgia and throughout the Southeastern region against claims of wrongful termination, wage and hour issues, and other EEO matters.

Focused on your success
The attorneys at Fowler, Hein, Cheatwood & Williams, P.A. take a team approach to addressing client matters. Our business model allows us to provide highly focused representation on smaller matters, alongside the ability to combine all resources on larger matters. And while we are trial-tested veterans of the court, we also educate our clients in proactive risk avoidance, helping them avert the emotional and financial costs that go hand-in-hand with disputes and litigation.
