Quality Representation, "The Best"
It is my privilege to recommend Mr. Wick. Mr. Wick is a bright, enthusiastic, and excellent attorney. Mr. Wick was assigned to be my consultant and represent me before the Merit Systems Protection Board. During the legal proceedings, he demonstrated the character and work ethic that easily gained my trust. Mr. Wick is extremely knowledgeable in the law and knows how to deal with complex issues which can arise in a court setting. Thanks to God and Mr. Wick’s extreme knowledge in the law, his professionalism and passion to defend me is what gave me a successful victory in my case. I thank God for Mr. Wick as my defender. I believe his work would, not only meet, but exceed your expectations should you choose him to represent you in any legal matter.

Rock Star! Best
Ben is a Rock Star as far as I am concerned. I am a real person - a top-notch performer who got on the wrong side of management. Ben stepped in and quickly demonstrated that he had greater expertise in employment laws and matters than managers in my company. He is tough, credible and persistent. He held their feet to the fire and kept them honest as my issues were being resolved. I would not hesitate to hire Ben to represent me in the most complicated situation. He built with me an environment of trust, confidence and realistic optimism.

Outstanding Employment Attorney - EEOC, Retaliation, Reasonable Accommodation, and MSPB
It took me almost one year to find Ben and I spoke with a lot of attorneys. As soon as I spoke with Ben, I hired him. Ben was referred to me by another attorney whose team beat my agency in 2018, that in itself speaks volumes. I went through a gruesome four years of discrimination and retaliation by my managers that no one should ever experience. I thank Ben, Holly Franson, and their team for excellent services. No one should take on federal government without a legal counsel, but if you must pursue justice, hire Ben, have faith in God, and persevere.

Ben is the best asset to have if the system fails to support you, he knows the laws and regulations and aggressively pursues making an issue right.

Highly Innovative and Extremely Capable!
I was facing a very difficult set of circumstances regarding some false accusations against me by another federal employee that are in the category of "he said, she said." My agency was proposing to remove me from federal service over these false allegations. Ben believed in me all the way and came up with an effective and ethical legal strategy, including written and oral responses, to show my agency that I was in the right, which protected me from a proposed removal. I am still with my agency and am a highly productive and happy employee. I owe this great outcome and saving my 20-year federal career to Ben's highly innovative and extremely capable representation and the hard work of his team. I highly recommend Ben and his team!

Excellent Team of Employment Law Attorneys
I hired the Wick Law Firm to represent me after my employer failed to make various payrolls over a period of time. The team knew just what to do, and not only won my case, but I was also awarded damages and attorney fees. After the case was won, my former employer went silent, and I found out that Wick Law does not pursue payments after the case, but referred me to another attorney who garnished the company,’s bank accounts and got me the money owed. I would highly recommend this team of highly experienced attorneys for any case involving employment law.

EEOC & MSPB
I thank my lucky stars for the outstanding legal team at the Wick Law Office. Mr. Ben Wick, Ms. Holly, Ms. Morgan, and Ms. Kaitlin worked tirelessly to achieve justice for me. I am forever grateful for their legal expertise, dedication, and kindness. The legal team advocated for me through ongoing Equal Employment Opportunity battles, from coaching me through depositions; reviewing literally thousands of artifacts; interviewing witnesses; navigating legal quagmires; quickly and kindly responding to my emails and phone calls; and most importantly, providing emotional support when I wanted to break down. Thanks to the Wick Law Office, a joint notice of settlement has been reached, and after many years of harassment and discrimination as a federal employee, I feel vindicated. This would have been impossible without Mr. Ben Wick's team. If you have experienced discrimination and seek justice, look no further than the Wick Law Office.

Very Impressed - Fortune 40 Company Case
Ben and his staff are just fantastic. Ben was very professional, with a calm aggressiveness that was spot on as he navigated a challenging case with a contentious very highly resourced company. Ben's fees were also very reasonable.

Outstanding work, superb representation, highly recommended!
When I was searching for a local federal employment attorney for my discrimination case, I was referred to Benjamin Wick by another attorney. I found that it was the best referral ever! He not only brought highly professional representation to my case, but ensured my employer did the right thing when they otherwise would have in caused irreparable harm to my long and distinguished career in the federal government. His legal counsel negotiated a settlement agreement with my agency that was unheard of the informal process and saved my career. His negotiations also gave me a platform for me to be heard by my employers and enabled me to protect my reputation and keep adverse actions out of my permanent employee record. I have no doubt that I would not have been able to get the fairness I am entitled to nor would I have fully understood rights as an employee without Benjamin and his staff in my corner. He made a difference and I will be forever grateful to him and his remarkable team for everything they did for me. Benjamin Wick is highly recommended for anyone who needs the very BEST in federal and private sector employment law representation. He would be the first I'd call.

Responsive, thorough, tenacious, and kind
When I realized my employer was attempting to force me to do something unethical, I called Ben immediately. He helped me develop a strategy for the final days of my employment to ensure I took all necessary steps to fulfill my professional obligations. This was so important to me, not only to protect myself professionally but also to save my sanity during the subsequent wrongful termination. In less than a month, Ben helped me negotiate a settlement five times that of the original severance offer. He also insisted the wording of the settlement agreement be changed in my favor to protect my future employment prospects. I was so relieved to avoid a protracted court battle. Ben is responsive, thorough, tenacious, and kind. I am so glad I had him on my side.

Great Representation
Ben was terrific. He took the time to understand every detail of my complaint. As my case proceeded, Ben steadfastly supported me. His persistence and timeliness in requesting information/discovery was met with resistance and at times hostility from my former employer. There were constant requests for extensions of time to submit information/discovery. There were constant references that information/discovery had been lost or destroyed or did not exist. However, Ben was not deterred and promptly filed motions for compliance. At no time did Ben waiver in his representation of me. Because of the resistance and non-compliance from my former employer, my case was lengthy. I hired Ben 18 months after I filed my EEO complaint and it was another 24 months before my complaint was settled. During this time, Ben kept me updated on every detail of my case. In the end, I was happy with the outcome of my complaint and the monetary award I received. Ben’s persistence and diligence throughout my case sent a message to my former employer their tactics and behavior violated my rights. I cannot express sufficiently my thanks to Ben for clearly getting this message across. I would recommend Ben to anyone.

Ben Wick and his team are the best out there. This is your guy.
I had never found myself in a situation where I needed an employment attorney before hiring Ben Wick, and f I ever find myself needing one again I will not hesitate to call Ben Wick. I would not ask around about other attorneys, I seriously would just call The Wick Law office. He and his team are smart, kind, thoughtful, and on their game. If I could give 6 stars (rather than the 5 possible in this review) I would. He and his team made this whole experience much less painful than I imagined it would be. Sincere thanks for your help, Ben. I really appreciate it. You're great at what you do, and you're really helping people out.

5 stars isn't enough
I found Ben after consulting with 2 other employment lawyers that said they couldn't help me with my wage claim case. Ben recognized immediately that my employer was in the wrong and I was due compensation. My employer settled for what I asked for AND paid my legal fees. Ben is smart, well-spoken and savvy. He's very easy to talk to, he's responsive and he doesn't nickel and dime you for his time. Very fair and trustworthy when it comes to billing. I highly recommend him to anyone needing help with unpaid wages; including commissions and bonuses.

Great help
Ben was very kind and helpful to me, taking time out of his own day to talk with one who doesn't even need to hire him. He gave me some great advice, which I intend to follow, and if need changes, I will certainly contract with him.

Review of Benjamin Wick
Top marks for attorney Ben Wick. I approached him on word that he has extensive experience working for "the other side," and I came away from the initial consultation confident that he would be able to win my wrongful termination case. He efficiently advised me on every step of the process and explained how all factors would bear on the case, and guided me through the documentation I needed to provide and actions I need to take. He built a solid foundation for the case based on his familiarity with the many missteps and failures of my former employer. Before his representation, when I filed my case with the EEOC, the VA refused to mediate. With it, the VA agreed to mediate before the MSPB. Mr. Wick's predictions about the VA 's claims and lawyer's actions, the treatment I could expect from the mediator and what would happen at every step of the process, and down to the exact dollar figure of the settlement. I am confident that without him in my corner, I would not have won the case.
