Attorney Porsche D. Léonce, an Associate at Elarbee Thompson Sapp & Wilson (“Elarbee Thompson”) law firm in Atlanta, is the featured lawyer in the Attorney’s Corner column of Atlanta Tribune – The Magazine’s September 2011 edition.
The feature of Attorney Léonce, who recently relocated to Atlanta to join Elarbee after beginning her career as a lawyer with a top law firm in Los Angeles, is titled “Porsche Léonce, Esq. – From LA Law To Elite Atlanta Law Firm.” Attorney Léonce is interviewed in Q&A format by Atlanta Tribune – The Magazine’s attorney-columnist Brian D. Poe, Esq.
At Elarbee Thompson, an award-winning Labor & Employment law boutique firm based in Atlanta, Porsche D. Léonce advises and represents employers in all aspects of employment law, including discrimination, harassment, retaliation, wage and hour, and leave benefits issues. She works with employers to ensure compliance with federal, state and local labor and employment statutes, including Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Georgia Fair Employment Practices Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
Attorney Brian Poe, who is Managing Partner of Brian Poe & Associates, Attorneys, PC and Founder of the national legal recruiting firm Esquire Connect LLC, stated that Atlanta Tribune – The Magazine’s feature of Attorney Léonce was a refreshing departure from its customary profiles on more seasoned attorneys. “What is fascinating about Porsche is how she excelled in Los Angeles at a major law firm, but made the decision that Atlanta would be the best place for her career and personal life. Elarbee Thompson seized the opportunity to bring her here, and Porsche has excelled in her new job and city.”
The profile on Léonce is the second time in 2011 that an Elarbee Thompson lawyer has been featured in Atlanta Tribune – The Magazine. In February 2011, Atlanta Tribune – The Magazine featured Elarbee Thompson Equity Partner Brent Wilson in the Attorney’s Corner column. This month’s feature mentions that many Elarbee Thompson attorneys were involved in the process of recruiting Leonce.
In the article, Léonce specifically mentions Brent Wilson, as well as Elarbee Thompson's Managing Partner Stanford (“Stan”) Wilson, a Buckhead resident who was featured in Buckhead Patch on June 27, 2011 for being one of the six Elarbee Thompson attorneys recognized in the 2011 Edition of Chambers USA’s 2011 Guide to America’s Leading Business Lawyers in the area of Labor & Employment. Léonce credits Brent Wilson for reaching out to her, which resulted in her introduction to Elarbee Thompson's lawyers.
