Equal Employment Opportunities

It is no overstatement to say that the Firm is deeply rooted in anti-discrimination law. One of its founding partners, Donald Lee Hollowell, was a renowned civil rights attorney, respected and honored nationally. His life and legal career were spent advocating for equality and confronting employment discrimination; indeed, discrimination in every form. Building on Mr. Hollowell's legacy, the Firm has developed a reputation for excellence and has gained extensive experience advising federal and state agencies, private employers and individuals on employment law and employment discrimination matters. The Firm is one of the oldest minority law firms in the Southeast and for most of its 40+ year history, has counseled clients on the enforcement of anti-discrimination laws affecting the workplace.

Almost four decades later… the legacy continues. In 2005, the Firm decided that a major part of its practice area would be devoted to providing EEO Services to federal agencies. From 2005 to 2009, the Firm provided EEO Services to federal agencies as a subcontractor. In 2009, the Firm applied for and was granted a GSA contract and, since becoming a GSA Schedule Contract Holder, the Firm has served as a Prime Contractor on small, medium-sized to large, and very large, complex projects. In each case, the projects were successfully completed and the Firm's clients uniformly rated its services as Exceptional. Such clients included the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, the United States Department of Commerce, United States Department of the Navy, the Federal Aviation Administration, the United States Department of Transportation, the United States Social Security Administration and many others.

Hollowell, Foster & Herring collaborates with federal agencies to facilitate thorough and efficient resolution of pre-complaint matters as well as formal complaints of discrimination, as required by law, thereby ensuring EEO compliance. Hollowell, Foster & Herring, P.C., provides all necessary reasonable accommodations to affiants with visual and/or hearing impairments. All EEO Services adhere to all standards set forth in EEOC Management Directive 110 and that are submitted within appropriate periods.
