Barclay H. Vallotton


Barclay splits her time between litigating cases for clients and helping clients prevent the need for litigation in the first place, by advising on compliance and best practices. She’s most skilled and experienced in the areas of employment law, education law, and commercial litigation. In practical terms, that means she can help you litigate cases involving claims like discrimination, retaliation, breach of contract, and business torts. She also represents employers, schools, colleges, and universities in connection with charges brought before the EEOC, the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Civil Rights, and the Georgia Department of Labor.

In addition to handling litigation and administrative proceedings, Barclay helps clients by drafting and reviewing employment contracts, handbooks, and policies. She regularly counsels schools and other employers in the greater Atlanta area and beyond on compliance with state and federal laws, especially Title VII, Title IX, FMLA, ADA, IDEA, and Section 504. She also represents college and university students in appeals involving academic dishonesty or other code of conduct violations, and in denials of accommodations.

Whatever the legal need, Barclay attempts to make stressful situations less so by being a straightforward, approachable, effective, and compassionate advocate.

Barclay came to Krevolin & Horst following a two-year federal clerkship and time at a litigation boutique in midtown Atlanta. In 2020, she joined the Super Lawyer ranks as a Rising Star in the field of education law.

Outside of the office, Barclay enjoys running, boating, cheering on the Dawgs, and spending time with her husband Will, with whom she’ll be welcoming a son this fall. On any given holiday, she can be found heading south to her native Columbus or coastal to visit family in St. Marys, GA and Charleston, SC.
