After being wrongfully removed from federal service, client retained Pitre & Associates for representation before the Merit Systems Protection Board (“MSPB”).  During this very difficult and trying time, Pitre & Associates successfully guided the client through the MSPB process, and was able to settle the matter, prior to a hearing.  The settlement agreement provided our client with a reinstatement to federal service, back-pay, including benefits and interest, and attorneys’ fees for a monetary award totaling approximately $70,000. 

 The client had the following to add to this success story:

“Mr. Pitre and Ms. de Vera's breath of knowledge in Federal Employment Law is exhaustive. Amid my times of uncertainty, their professionalism and legal advice reigned supreme. I was able to be reinstated, regain my years of Federal tenure, and continue my path towards Federal Retirement.  Even with all the complexity involved, Mr. Pitre and his team devised the best strategy to prepare for trial.”

The client contacted the firm in late 2018 after being terminated from his private sector position, on the day of orientation, due to a perceived physical disability. Upon filing an EEOC disability discrimination charge at the Washington, DC EEOC field office, the firm assisted the client through the investigative process, and ultimately filed a  federal civil complaint at the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. However, prior to discovery in that matter, the firm was able to negotiate settlement without having to take the client through a lengthy, and potentially costly, court battle. The client was extremely pleased with the outcome of the case.
