Clients appreciate Victoria Harrison’s “promptness, tact, professionalism, and efficiency.” Said one client, “I couldn’t be more pleased.”

Victoria represents federal employees in a variety of different venues, including the EEOC, Merit System Protection Board (MSPB), and Office of Special Counsel (OSC), dealing with issues of discrimination, a multitude of disciplinary actions, and whistleblower retaliation.  She also provides legal advice and counsel on federal disability retirement matters, including submitting initial benefits applications and requesting reconsideration from the Office of Personnel Management (OPM).  For example, a client recently retained the firm in connection with a federal disability retirement claim.  Within just four months, Victoria helped the client obtain disability retirement benefits, even though OPM had previously denied his application.

A federal employee recently retained the firm after Victoria recently helped a client with a severe medical condition to obtain disability retirement benefits from the Office of Personnel Management after OPM had previously denied them, just four months after taking his case.

Before joining Alan Lescht and Associates, Victoria worked for Tully Rinckey in the firm’s DC and Virginia offices.  During that time, she worked exclusively in the federal employment sector, developing her skills as a successful litigator.

Victoria graduated magna cum laude from Tulane University School of Law, where she was a member of Tulane Law Review.  During law school, she completed a year-long externship with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), clerking for an administrative judge in the New Orleans field office.  Victoria also worked as a law clerk at a prominent labor and employment defense firm in New Orleans.

I worked with Victoria Harrison for my disability retirement case, and she was wonderful! I would highly recommend her to anyone. I was approved for disability retirement thanks to Ms. Harrison's hard work.

Victoria Harrison is an amazing attorney - knows employment law inside and out and is very patient, extremely understanding and always professional. Additionally, Victoria kept me informed, addressed my concerns, and welcomed my feedback on draft documents. Without Victoria's extra efforts, hard work and reassurances, I would have never made it through this awful traumatic nightmare of taking on a Federal agency.

Victoria Harrison of Alan Lescht & Associates handled my case and I couldn't be more pleased with her promptness, tact, professionalism, and efficiency. Due to geographic location, I was hesitant at first to use this law firm; I live in PA and this firm is located in DC. That said, Victoria and her team scheduled a phone call to do the kickoff meeting so that I didn't have to drive all the way to DC for a 30 minutes (or less) meeting. I emailed a few documents ahead of time and the ensuing phone call was brief. Key points were discussed using a very simple question and answer session. It was very reassuring as I could sense a preliminary strategy being formed to support my case from just the initial phone call. Following that phone call, I did as she instructed at each stage, providing all documentation and artifacts that I had. The rest is history. I would highly recommend Victoria Harrison and this law firm. I am a very real, middle class person who had a real-world problem. In terms of cost, the quality of service was appropriate with the fees charged by this law firm. Not to say that it was cheap, because no lawyer is, but in terms of value - what I received for what I paid, I am very pleased with the outcome. Thanks again, Ms. Harrison!
