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.
