full service legal representation FOR federal and postal employees
LET US HELP YOU WITH YOUR OWCP, EEOC, or MSPB CASE.
We provide full service legal representation to federal and postal employees before the following agencies:
Office of Personnel Management (OPM) and the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB): for those who have been denied an application for disability retirement.
Office of Workers’ Compensation (OWCP): for those with on-the-job injuries and work-related illnesses.
Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC): in claims of discrimination based on age, color, gender (including sexual harassment), ethnicity, race, religion or reprisal.
Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB): in appeals of adverse personnel and disciplinary actions such as denial of promotion, discriminatory performance appraisals, improper reductions in force, removals and suspensions in excess of fourteen days.
Federal law is frequently confusing. It is quite common for employees to be completely unaware of their rights. Before you throw your rights away, seek professional advice and assistance in handling your claim. We can help you at all stages of your case, from filing the initial claim to appealing denial of a claim, protecting your health and rights upon return to work, and in fighting termination of benefits. Give us a call at your convenience.
There is an alternative to full representation which is frequently referred to by attorneys as “unbundling” or “legal coaching.” When an attorney offers unbundled legal services, he or she provides to a client (who is otherwise handling an action pro se) one or more specific services out of the possible range of services normally “bundled” together as part of full representation.
Some states, such as California, have accepted and even encouraged legal coaching, especially in connection with family law cases. Other states have not accepted legal coaching.
Under the current rules of the Merit Systems Protection Board (“MSPB”) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”), even if you win your case, you cannot be compensated for legal coaching costs. Any motion for recovery of attorney fees and cost which is based on legal coaching will be denied. This is extremely important and must be carefully considered before hiring a legal coach.
