Lynn Olmert’s practice focuses on workers’ compensation defense in the firm’s Atlanta office. She has more than 30 years of experience in workers’ compensation defense and general liability throughout Georgia, Maryland and the District of Columbia. Lynn also has significant jury trial experience and has tried numerous workers’ compensation cases. She frequently presents on workers’ compensation issues to employers, insurers and colleagues throughout the country. Lynn was inducted as a Fellow of the American Bar Association’s College of Workers’ Compensation Lawyers and the American Bar Foundation.

Lynn is an active member of Belong @ MGC, the firm’s diversity, equity and inclusion program focused on fostering a firm culture that recruits, promotes, celebrates and includes all backgrounds and experiences.

“I began practicing in the 1980s during a time when there were very few Black attorneys in mid-size and large law firms. There were few support systems in place for those of us who worked in law firms, and it was a very isolating feeling. I am committed to making sure this type of support is a priority for our firm and very thankful that MGC shares the same passion and has made diversity, equity and inclusion a priority,” says Lynn.

Lynn is an avid runner, often found crossing the finish line at a marathon or triathlon, and raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Team-in-Training. She has run 10 full marathons. She is also invested in her Atlanta community, sharing her voice with the Mount Paran Church choir and serving on the Boards of the Atlanta Youth Academy, Elite Women of Excellence mentoring program and is also a member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. Lynn is married with three grown children and enjoys spending time with family and friends.
