An introduction to FMLA protections

Life is always evolving. Sometimes families are greeted by newly born or adopted members. Sometimes families experience the significant illness or injury of one of their own. When these joyous and challenging life events occur, the law generally protects the rights of employees to take time off without fear of incurring employment discrimination as a result of that leave.

New single utterance precedent will help to protect workers

The childhood playground adage that sticks and stones may break bones but words can do no harm is quite simply false. When words are strong enough and said in a certain context, they can do great harm. Thankfully, a recent ruling by the influential U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit holds that when even a single statement is egregious enough, an employee may bring suit against his or her employer for race discrimination or other forms of harassment.

I have been a litigator for close to 20 years and Alan is most certainly one of the best attorneys I have ever come across.
Mr. Lescht is an excellent Trial Lawyer, He is calm, cool, and collected.
I also appreciated Alan's frankness and his ability to identify what is important and what is not when going through a case like this.
I would highly recommend Alan to anyone who needs an exceptional and incredibly talented Employment Attorney.
Mr. Lescht is an extraordinarily responsive attorney, returning my emails and phone calls within minutes. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone who thinks they may need a lawyer. Definitely incredible work.
I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism, and I will always be grateful for his guidance.
