I am a former Federal Employee who was involved in whistleblowing case. The agency terminated my employment.
I initially hired Mr. Brown's law firm, without doing my homework. But who really does in these matters. The firm seemed professional, had a flashy website boasting years of experience. I spoke to Mr. Brown, who assured me the case would take no more than 4-6 months and I would have my job back.
10 months into my MSPB appeal, his firm had charged me three times the normal attorney fees for such a case. (which I found out after firing his firm and hiring another firm in TX.) He was now resulting to using bullying tactics, threatening to drop my case if I would not settle with the Government for virtually nothing.
I would strongly encourage anyone looking for representation to look elsewhere. A firm with this amount of professed experience, should be able from day one to give you a fair assessment and not be looking at your pocket book. It seemed at every turn the case was dragging on and fees growing exponentially.
After hiring another firm my case was settled in less than 3 months to my satisfaction. I would stay far away from this firm.

I felt victimized and raked over the coals. I spent over $25,000 on legal services and never went to a settlement hearing or court. I had asked Mr. Brown to put my case on hold, only to receive continous bills in the mail. I would never recommend Mr. Brown to my worst enemy. Mr. Brown is very unprofessional.
