Partner/Lawyer, Woodley & McGillivary LLP
Molly A. Elkin
Molly Elkin primarily represents workers in large collective and class actions to recover unpaid overtime and minimum wages. She enjoys a national practice, representing unionized workforces and other employees seeking workplace justice and fair pay. In 2002, she was the first female lawyer elected into partnership in her law firm, Woodley & McGillivary LLP, where she has paved the way for new women partners. For the past two decades, Elkin has served as lead trial counsel in numerous pay cases across the country. Over the course of her career, she has collected over $150 Million for workers in various professions, including computer specialists, fire fighters, satellite dish installers, border patrol agents, firearms instructors, mortgage loan officers, police officers, prison guards, and restaurant workers. She fights hard for her clients. One federal court recently concluded that: “Ms. Elkin has demonstrated that she is a zealous advocate for her clients, and that she is an exemplary officer of the court.” The American Bar Association will induct Elkin into the prestigious College of Labor and Employment Lawyers as a fellow in November 2017. Molly Elkin lives in Washington, D.C. with her husband and three daughters. As part of her effort to reach Wonder Woman status, Elkin runs and lifts weights daily, enjoys yoga and SoulCycle weekly, and a dry martini nightly. Elkin serves on the Board of the PEN Faulkner Foundation, and on the United States Court of Federal Claims Advisory Committee on Civilian Pay.
