Public Sector Employment

Schertler Onorato Mead & Sears attorneys regularly represent federal and District of Columbia employees in matters relating to their government service.

Our attorneys shepherd government employees through the administrative investigation or complaint process, respond to proposed discipline, and address matters relating to security clearances. We understand the federal and local administrative process and are equally comfortable negotiating a resolution or litigating an employment matter within the agency or in court.

Our partners appear before the Merit Systems Protection Board and Administrative Law Judges in various employment-related matters, and have had past success in securing a client’s government position and winning awards of attorney fees. We also negotiate public sector employment and separation agreements.
