We have successfully represented individuals across the U.S. and worldwide in employment and labor law matters.

Dealing With Employment Discrimination?

Are You Facing Disciplinary Sanctions?

A suspension, demotion or other adverse employment action can stall or end your government career. We advocate for federal employees in all disciplinary proceedings, including appeals of proposed adverse actions, as well as appeals of security clearance denial or revocation.

Our lawyers are known for skillfully defending clients before their agencies, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Office of Special Counsel, the Office of Personnel Management and other bodies. Contact us right away if you have been notified of possible disciplinary action or removal.

We Fight Whistleblower Retaliation

Calling attention to wrongdoing should be encouraged and rewarded. Instead, government whistleblowers often find themselves reassigned, denied advancement or terminated. We vigorously protect federal employees from retaliation for whistleblowing on criminal activity or violations or federal law.

Our attorneys lobbied to strengthen the federal whistleblower protections, and can assert your remedies in claims before the MSPB or OSC.
