Winning at the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB)
I hired David Fallon to represent me regarding a wrongful termination from the Dept of the Navy. I needed, and my case required an experienced Attorney who had augured at the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB) hearing. In Court experience, is very important. I’ll never forget what the Judge said to me as he slid the case file over to the left side of his desk at the end of our three-day hearing, “Mr. Myers, Mr. Fallon is worth every dime you paid him”. Although he didn’t tell us at the time if we had won or not. In short, it took 4 months to get the initial decision, which reversed my removal. After almost 3 years, I was reinstated. I received 3 years back pay, interest, refunded all my attorney’s fees, and was promoted. My family will always be indebted to Dave for saving my job and family from having to start over. God Bless- Rick

Highly recommend, very knowledgeable
Attorney David Fallon was hired for a despairing situation of mine where my own proactive actions came with no success. Mr Fallon listened very attentively, provided empathy and asked relevant questions where I felt heard and guided right from the beginning. His high level knowledge of the Tenant/Landlord law is worth every dollar because he provided a clear and concise obtainable resolution. This gave me much relief and peace of mind with knowing he had a successful plan. He is easy going during discussions yet sharp and aggressive with his strategies. I highly recommend Attorney Mr Fallon!

Great Consultation
David was very easy going to work with! He provided good information and positive feedback regarding my situation. He was quite knowledgeable and very attentive. Most importantly he listened to my words and provided me information based on what I was experiencing. His attention to detail and ability to recall information was very helpful to me in deciding how to move forward.

You seeking a strong attorney
David Fallon, is extremely knowledgeable, resourceful, and a strong attorney. Mr. Fallon decided to file my appeal with MSPB (MERIT SYSTEMS PROTECTION BOARD), because the agency (USDA Forest Service) violated my constitutional right to "DUE PROCESS", and "WHISTLE-BLOWER RETALIATION". Mr. Fallon is very honest, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable with Federal employment laws and I highly recommend him. Mr. Fallon, navigated through this process with ease, and kept me informed every step of the way. In my opinion, Mr. Fallon earned his keep while representing me at the MSPB Hearing. During the MSPB Hearing, Mr. Fallon was very thorough, aggressive, and was quick to point out other employees' violations. He is a very powerful attorney/lawyer. I unequivocally prevailed my MSPB appeal, and the judge restored myself to my former position with appropriate back pay and benefits. I am very grateful to be able to have Mr. Fallon as my attorney, and for his support. Additionally, if you're having employment issues regarding: (Retaliation, Reprisal, Harassment, Whistleblower Retaliation, Discrimination, Misconduct, Breach of Contract, Due Process errors, or Appeals) than David is your attorney. Most attorney don't measure up to David A. Fallon, especially if you're going file with MSPB, OSC, or EEOC. You're in good hands with David Fallon as your representative.

Top Notch Employment Lawyer

David Fallon is as sharp as they come!
David Fallon handled our eviction case with minimal amount of time and maximum results! As tenants who lived in an intolerable situation, our landlords took us to court when we broke the lease. David Fallon handled our case so skillfully that the landlord had to settle in our favor. We are beyond impressed with his intelligence and skill in the courtroom! A total professional and master of law.
