In my opinion, Alan Lescht and Associates, by far, is the MOST understanding, knowledgeable, and caring law firm in the Washington, DC area. I could rest easy from the first phone call, that in the end, everything was going to be alright, and it was so! Nicole and Rani were fantastic and easy to work!! They thoroughly understand federal employment law, rules, and regulations.

I had a work related issue that required a phenomenal attorney, and that was Alan, Lescht , his firm worked with me to resolve my work issue.... Rani who was a Shareholder in the firm, worked on my case and did a great job of keeping me in the loop of what was happening with my case, she kept me up to date on all hearings, issues and all information I needed to make an informed decision at every turn in my case.
