Very few law firms focus their practice on representing Federal Employees. If you are a Federal Employee and are having any issues at work, please contact our experienced team of attorneys who understand how the Federal Agencies operate and will maximize your potential outcome. For example, our attorneys understand the difference between Performance Based and Misconduct Based actions at the Merit Systems Protection Board as there are different standards of proof. Furthermore, we understand the proper way to place an employee on a PIP (Performance Improvement Plan) as well as the significance of the issuance of Performance Appraisals. For a non-selection case, only an attorney with vast knowledge in the field will understand the selection process from the Vacancy Announcement to the Best Qualified List, the Interview Panel and ultimately the selection. Understanding these unique factors in Federal Employment will save you time and money and will place you in the best possible position for the desired outcome.
