We welcome our new associate attorney, Sara Nunley McDonough.

Sara is a graduate of the College of William and Mary and attended law school at the University of Richmond. She is licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia. During law school, Ms. McDonough's studies and work experience focused on the fields of employment law and employment discrimination law. Ms. McDonough completed an externship at the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) field office in Richmond, VA. She worked closely with an EEOC attorney and investigators on cases involving employment discrimination on the basis of religion, sexual harassment, race, color, and retaliation. Additionally, Ms. McDonough interned with the Disability Law Center of Virginia (formerly Virginia Office for Protection and Advocacy), an organization that advocates and provides legal services for persons with disabilities.

Court Rules "Maxiflex Schedule" Can Be A Reasonable Accommodation

Disabled employees who require maximum flexibility in their work schedules have received a show of support from the DC Court of Appeals in the recent decision of Solomon v. Vilsack, (No. 12-5123, 8/14), which held that a "maxiflex schedule" -- one that allows an employee to come in late, leave early and work late, as needed -- can be a reasonable accommodation for a disability so long as that person fulfills their weekly hours.

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.
