If you are dealing with an appeal to the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB), you’ve come to the right place. With years of combined experience representing clients in front of the MSPB, the law firm of Melville Johnson, P.C. has the experience and expertise to vigorously protect your rights and interests.
All federal employees have the right to appeal a decision to terminate their employment, and there are many grounds for which a federal employee may wish to file an MSPB appeal. This could be due to a Federal Reduction In Force (RIF), federal discipline, removal, discrimination, or a number of other reasons. At Melville Johnson, P.C., our attorneys assist clients with their Merit Systems Protection Board appeals from beginning to end.
The Merit Systems Protection Board appeals process requires special attention to detail and can vary drastically from proceedings in state or federal courts. For these reasons we highly recommend that you have an experienced attorney who focuses on MSPB law review your case in its entirety and work with you throughout the process. For instance, it is very important that you know to file an appeal within 30 days after you receive the decision to suspend or remove you from federal employment; if you miss this deadline you could be barred from appealing the decision entirely.
