A recent client said that she “could not have asked for better representation, counsel, advice, and guidance. Christina is an absolute superstar that I relied on and trust implicitly.”

Christina Quashie defends the rights of federal employees who have been subjected to discrimination and adverse actions.  She regularly represents federal employees in cases before the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), as well as in investigations by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) and Office of Special Counsel (OSC).  She also represents clients in Maryland state and federal courts.  She obtains substantial settlements for clients as well as favorable decisions from administrative judges.  Super Lawyers has recognized Christina as a top-rated employment litigation attorney in Washington, DC.

Christina determines case strategy based on her prior experience; she constantly engages clients to obtain their feedback and input regarding how to move the case forward.  She recently helped a member of the Delaware Air National Guard successfully fight a five-day suspension, getting it reversed.  She also represented a former US. Department of Commerce employee fight his removal, winning a substantial monetary settlement, attorneys’ fees, and a clean personnel record.

Prior to joining Alan Lescht and Associates, Christina worked for several Washington, DC-based firms practicing labor and employment law.  She obtained her law degree from American University Washington College of Law, where she was a dean’s fellow and a member of the Black Law Students Association.

From our first meeting to our last, she continuously gave me peace of mind and demonstrated time and again she was there for me. She knows the law and her confidence in my case and the response she wrote gave me hope when I felt there was none.

I am so grateful to Alan, Christina and Joyce for all of their hard work utilizing their legal skills to win my retaliation/discrimination case and allow me to fully enjoy my life again. Without them I would have lost my job, most of my retirement, my home and all that I have worked for in the last 31 years of government service for the Navy.

When I first contacted your firm for a consultation regarding my case you personally contacted me immediately to discuss the case. In our discussion you assured me that your firm would do everything to fight for my rights in this clear case of discrimination…..and Christina never disappointed me. Shortly after our consultation you assigned my case to Christina Quashie, who also immediately contacted me to get started on the response to the Notice of Proposed Removal. In each of these areas/actions, Christina performed magnificently. I could not have asked for better representation, counsel, advice, and guidance in these matters that impacted my life and lively hood. Christina is an absolute superstar that I relied on and trust implicitly. She never let me down, and always provided sound advice and counsel. She always ensured that I knew the good, the bad and the ugly, regarding any decision I might make so that there were no surprises. There were times when I felt down (because EEO is a long process), but Christina was always upbeat and positive. She was intimately aware of the intricate details of the case, and always ensured that the numerous documents/motions we had to submit were thorough and told the story of the discrimination that I had endured over the years, and the nexus that resulted in my unfair removal from the Federal Government by the Agency. I feel that my case touched on almost every aspect of discrimination and EEO and Christina brilliantly defended me in all areas, and always had my best interest at heart. I truly want to thank you, and personally recognize Christina for her extraordinary efforts and sincere dedication in getting my career back on track. I would without hesitation recommend your firm to others in the future, and please pass on to Christina my sincere thanks and appreciation. She has given me renewed faith in the system and the law.
