Not Your Average Attorney
David took my case without hesitation and I was overwhelmingly pleased and surprised with how quickly and well things went. He was available by phone and text at all times, kept me abreast of things, was so kind, understanding, professional and BEST of all he was funny and normal. David settled a very difficult employment situation for me and I will ALWAYS be grateful to him.

Supremely satisfied client
David and his firm have represented me since March 2009, and I'm fortunate and thankful for his expert knowledge of government employee, equal opportunity, and disabled employee rights, laws, and guidelines, as well as his counsel to help me through challenging and difficult law-related times. David is responsive and available, and when we speak and coordinate via email I'm certain that he's completely focused on me and my needs. I also consider him to be exceedingly fair with his rate structure, and his staff diligently keeps me informed regarding status and cost breakdowns on all matters he works for me. I find him to be empathic while also ensuring I have a realistic view of options for the various situations he's helped me address - always successfully in my favor. As a long-time federal employee, I never needed a lawyer's counsel until 2009, and I'm grateful that David and his firm were my first choice, based on a coworker's recommendation. David and his staff have confirmed my initial impression: he is THE government employee law professional. Look no further; if you need a lawyer on your side, David is the answer.

Lawyer Extraordinaire
Mr. Schleicher represented me in a difficult situation. He was responsive, caring, professional and extremely knowledgeable with attention to detail. The best thing I can say about Mr. Schleicher is if all attorneys were as good as he is, there would be no lawyer jokes.
