J. Mason Wymer
Mason has a long history handling general litigation matters. This experience serves him well in his current practice, in which he provides guidance on a wide variety of issues and defends clients in lawsuits and administrative proceedings.
Mason was born and has lived most of his life in Atlanta, Georgia. He left briefly to attend the University of Virginia before returning to his home state to receive his law degree from Mercer University in Macon. After graduating from law school, Mason returned to Atlanta and handled a wide variety of litigation ranging from construction defect claims, real estate transactions, surety disputes, breach of contract, and disputes between employer and employee. Seeking to deepen his experience within employment law, Mason joined the in-house team at a Fortune 50 retailer in Atlanta, where he provided day to day guidance regarding general labor and employment matters and assisted in defending the employer in various civil and administrative proceedings around the country.
Now an attorney at Elarbee Thompson, Mason focuses on providing counsel to corporate clients regarding a variety of matters within labor and employment law. While he strives to avoid litigation, when a lawsuit is filed, Mason vigorously defends his clients in a range of matters including violations of the Fair Labor Standards Act, unlawful discrimination and/or retaliation in violation of Title VII, the National Defense Authorization Act, Whistle Blower Protection Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, and the Age Discrimination in Employment Act, among others.
Mason currently lives in the Chastain Park area of Atlanta. He prides himself on being available to his clients 24/7, but in his downtime, he can be found displaying his (mediocre) golf game on courses around the state or running (slowly) in races ranging from 5Ks to marathons around the world.
