Winning Team!
In my opinion, this is definitely one of the best legal firms in the industry. I have been represented by with the Alden Law Group in two EEO actions over the past 12 years. Michelle Bercovici was the lead lawyer in both of my cases which we won, thanks to her extensive trial experience and strong writing skills. The Alden Law team understands the EEO arena, and they are experts at navigating the ever-changing EEO process. Their years of experience and winning record are not the only reason to use this firm. They also have a birds-eye view on the court system and understand how to navigate small or large nuances that will help you prevail in your case. The entire team at Alden Law Group are very kind and professional and they will protect your rights. If you ever find yourself in a dispute with your employer, make sure you first contact Alden Law Group to assist you with your legal issues. Thank you, “Arabia” P.S. Shout out to Kristin and James. Thankful for your input and guidance.

simply awesome!!!!
Michelle, did everything she could possible do to win my case, and she did just that. I am so please with the attention to detail and the persistence that she has, my case involved the Federal Government and was very time consuming and drawn out. She was on top of the case for over 2 years. She has a strong legal background and will definitely give you 110 percent. I would strongly recommend Michelle and The Alden Law Firm to anyone needing a labor and employment lawyer.

Great support
Michelle took over my case midstream and was knowledgeable, patient, thorough and provided excellent advice on a complex case. In addition, when I needed advice on another issue, she was immediately available and straightforward. I have recommended Michelle to a number of friends because I think so highly of her.

Wildly Successful Outcome
Michelle fearlessly and tirelessly advocated on by behalf until we reached a successful conclusion. My case was a federal employment discrimination case involving disability. Two firms declined my case and one advised me not to pursue an EEO claim. When I consulted with Alden Law Group (ALG), ALG gave me an accurate assessment of my case's strengths and involved costs. The firm is widely viewed as the gold standard for EEO and employment law, and after working with them, I can see why. Michelle took a subtle case and made it concrete and highly actionable. She knew when to advance, when to negotiate, what to pursue, and how to do it. She was relentless and fierce. I was in awe of her ability to sift through thousands of pages of information and craft a compelling and accurate narrative. My agency gave me a hard time and threw up a lot of roadblocks, and she steered me around them every time. Pursuing an EEO claim is a very isolating process, and she was with me every step of the way. She informed me of my rights, and her judgment was spot on. Because of her efforts, I received a six-figure settlement and medical retirement -- a benefit worth $1million +.
