Outstanding New Attorney
Mr. Maycomber was at all times very professional, and resopnded appropriately. It was a pleasure working with Mr. Maycomber; the only frustration, our entire case was accomplishes via e-mail or by phone. It has been a pleasure working with you and your agency. You have been nothing but professional throughout this process, I applaud your support of OEF/OIF veterans and the USERRA issues we are facing. I just wish we could do more to get some Federal Agencies to abide by Federal Laws through their own flawed policies instead of settling as if nothing happened. How are we to affect change of we do not push the envelope and hold these agencies to taks. I am a Veteran who works for the VA!!! Enough Said. Mr. Maycomber is an asset to the Tully Rinckey. Firm.
