The Importance of Finding the Right Federal Employee Attorney

As a federal employee, you probably know the federal employment laws that apply to you are different from those that apply in the private sector and that there are several variations in the rights you have as a federal employee to protect your career, including differences in the EEO complaint process and discipline process, as well as access to administrative forums such as the MSPB. Whatever issue you are facing, whether discipline or discrimination, it is key to have a federal employment law attorney who understands the rights of federal employees and knows how to navigate through the federal administrative processes and other remedies available to federal employees suffering violations of their rights under federal employment law.

As lawyers specializing in federal employment law, we know what steps to take to help you prove your EEO complaint, MSPB appeal, or other matter, and obtain the relief you are entitled to receive under the federal employment laws. It can seem scary to go up against the federal government, especially when you career and reputation may be on the line, but you can be successful in your federal employment law case. You need a specialized attorney for federal employees to provide support throughout your federal employment law dispute, and we will be in your corner at the EEOC, MSPB, OSC, or appropriate court.
