Kristin Alden and her team are a dedicated, talented and thorough group of professionals that helped a combat disabled veteran overcome major odds to gain victory against the largest government agency and its overwhelming advantage of resources and time. She used great skill to blend my personal experience with the law and provide a clear path for the court to have a comprehensive understanding of how the agency and federal executives took advantage of their trusted positions of authority to manipulate staff and internal operations and deliberately discriminate against an individual. The case revealed it is not a single example but something that is repeated time and again all across the federal system. In my case the chance of success was less than 5%, yet we developed the trust and confidence that we could overcome tremendous odds and it was an amazing experience to be proven right. I know her team will do all it can to help others beat the odds and find justice.

I found Kristin Alden online. At the same time, I was asking for a recommendation from a couple of attorney acquiantances who did not practice in this area. Interestingly, they both recommended her. I am grateful that I hired Kristin. After our initial consult, I felt confident that she would fight for me. She was realistic from the beginning about the merits of my case (strong) and how much compensation that I would be able to get given that it was an EEO case. She made it clear that settlement was the likely path and a good path as it would allow me to move forward with my life rather than continuing to deal with the emotional and physical harm this was causing me. She was and is a very compassionate person. She empathized with me. She is very personable which was important to me. As far as her expertise, she knows the law in and out. This is important to understand because it really comes down to what is legal and illegal. She is on top of deadlines which is critical to an EEO case. She is aware of the "games" the government takes to delay. Kristin is well connected which is significant as she clearly has a good rapport and reputation with judges who ultimately become involved in either a settlement or a court date. She is resolute with opposing counsel. Kristin has a presence and confidence about her. She has a lot of experience and will fight for you. I was very pleased with my settlement. I have recommended her to others. You can't go wrong with Kristin!

Kristin won the case and achieved more than I expected. This was my first interaction with a lawyer, and it turned out to be extremely rewarding. The case involved the National Institutes of Health.

I was referred to Ms. Alden by way of her known expertise in handling Federal cases associated with EEO complaints. Ms. Alden did an outstanding job, from beginning to end, in ensuring the case settled with amicability on both sides of the table. She was very communicative both in written and verbal form, knowledgeable of the law and trustworthy. Thank you

Kristin is tops in her field, knowledgeable, empathic, and effective. I have recommended her to several other federal employees and will continue to do so.

The Alden Group attorneys excel in their knowledge of the law and possess excellent representational skills. As a regionally-based labor union, we appreciate their willingness to get down in the trenches with our rank- and-file leaders and staff to fight for our members' rights. They handle individual union members' issues, administrative hearings affecting large groups of workers and are our trusted legal advisers. Our partnership with them has made us a more effective union .

My Federal employer improperly demoted me. Kristin Alden and Tim Cheng of Alden LG got me restored rank, back pay with interest, and they took care of all the little things around the edges that cropped up. The Agency had to pay the legal bill. There was not one single way for Alden LG to win any more thoroughly--total victory. Can't recommend them enough. Highest ppssible rating--FIVE STARS!

I spent three years of my life with the Alden Law Firm. I am forever grateful to Kristin and her associates for returning my honor and dignity. My case involved wrongful termination, EEO, criminal charges, and security clearance issues--not all at once, but progressive as I fought my accusers. I had separate attorneys for the criminal and security clearance charges but Kristin Alden was my primary attorney and her efforts were extremely useful in these other charges--she remained committed to all the charges against me and provided legal support as necessary. She and her associates confronted my case with the rigor necessary to combat the accusations. She thouroughly and meticulously researched every accusation from every angle and made compelling arguements--very knowledgeable. As the agency, who wrongfully terminated me, dug deeper to support their actions, Kristin responded with unwavering results. She explained to me, in detail, her approach to every aspect of the case so I could easily understand what her intentions were. She also took the time to explain the abundance of motions, cross motions, and legal jargen that went back and fourth between the attorneys and the judge. Kristen was not only my attorney, but became my support when I wanted to give up. She truly believed in my case and became my encouragement to move forward. She remained professional during times of personal frustration and helped me through these tough times. She worked with me, financially, on the associated legal fees--money well spent. It's extremely difficult to capture three years worth of litigation in this review. What I can say is that I am so very glad that someone recommended Kristin to me at the beginning of my legal journey. I whole heartedly recommend Kristin and the Alden Law Firm to anyone who is looking for a professional, knowledgeable, and compassionate attorney.

Counselor Alden came at the recommendation of a friend (also a lawyer) when I found myself in the worst bind of my career while serving the federal government. I had prepared my whole life to get the prestigious position I was placed in and, sadly, found that my supervisor actively discriminated against employees with disabilities like mine. When I had an in-office seizure early on in my tenure and my supervisor single-mindedly adopted the mission of getting rid of me, there was nowhere to turn but the law. Thank God that I was referred to Alden's law firm. Everyone I encountered there was extremely helpful, scrupulously professional, informative and appropriately empathic. I knew at all times that in no way was my case merely an income stream for the firm. Instead, I knew that my interests were thoroughly protected for the duration. I ended up successfully negotiating my preferred settlement with the federal government. Today, I'm in a job I love and I'm better off for having had this experience -in large part, because I had the opportunity to work with Kristin Alden. I didn't think it could happen. I'm extremely grateful. Did I mention that due to extenuating circumstances Alden generously handled my case pro bono? I recommend her very highly.

Dealing with employment issues is never pleasant, but Kristin and the other attorney's at the Alden Law Firm were kind, understanding, and very knowledgeable. I felt very taken care of. They took the time to hear me out, understand my priorities and concerns, and took swift and appropriate action. While no one ever wants to be forced into legal action, Kristin and her team make an otherwise unpleasant experience into something bearable. I highly recommend their services.
