About Us

Charles Yezbak founded Yezbak Law Offices in 1998 to help employees. Our focus remains employee rights. We primarily assist individuals and groups of employees recover unpaid wages and overtime pay under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). Over the past decade we have successfully helped thousands of employees recover backpay for minimum wage and overtime pay violations in a variety of industries.

We also represent individuals and groups of employees who have been subjected to unlawful employment practices, such as age discrimination and harassment, race discrimination and harassment, gender discrimination and sexual harassment, disability discrimination, and wrongful termination. We also assist executives and other employees negotiate employment contracts and severance agreements.

Frequently invited to speak to groups about the FLSA, wage and hour law, and other employment law issues, Yezbak has also spoken at continuing education seminars for lawyers and as a guest lecturer at college campuses. He is a contributing author and Senior Editor of the wage and hour law treatise Wage and Hour Laws: A State-by-State Survey (BNA Books).

Yezbak’s professional affiliations include serving as past chair of the Nashville Bar Association’s Employment Law and Civil Rights Committee. He currently serves as a member of the Executive Council for the Tennessee Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section. He is also a member of the Federal Labor Standards Legislation Committee of the American Bar Association’s Labor and Employment Law Section, the National Employment Lawyers Association, the Tennessee Employment Lawyers Association, the American Association for Justice, the Tennessee Trial Lawyers Association, and the Tennessee Bar Association.

He received a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business in 1990 and a Doctor of Law from Emory University School of Law in 1994. Born in Hampton, Va., and raised in Uniontown, Pa., Yezbak currently lives in Nashville, Tenn. with his wife, Lisa, and their two daughters, Claire and Cecilia.
