How We Protect Federal Employees’ Rights

We proudly represent employees of federal agencies in all of the following legal matters:

  • Adverse Actions – If your employer took unwarranted disciplinary action against you given the circumstances, we want to help you fight back. This includes cases involving suspensions that last beyond 14 days, as well as demotions that result in an unjustified pay decrease.
  • Employee VA Civilian Representation – We handle Veterans Affairs legal issues concerning AIB, DAB, EEO, MSPB, and PSB.
  • Title 38 – We represent medical and health care providers who work at the VA or the National Institutes of Health (NIH), as well as Hybrid Title 38 employees, in matters concerning unfair or unequal treatment in the workplace. This includes disciplinary actions, pay issues, and more.
  • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Cases – If you’ve been discriminated against at work, trying to get in touch with your agency’s EEO office for help can be unexpectedly difficult. Pines Federal is here to help. We are not afraid to go up against HR offices, supervisors, and the like when protecting your right to fair and equal treatment in the workplace.
  • Disability – We handle cases involving disability discrimination, Social Security Disability discrepancies, federal workers’ compensation issues, and federal disability retirement benefits disputes.
  • Federal Union Representation – With over 20 years of experience practicing federal employment law, we regularly advocate for members of the following unions: AFGE, NFFE, NTEU, and IAM.
