I've never met Jeff Needle, but I know who he is. If there were a Hall of Fame for Washington lawyers who represent plaintiffs in employment discrimination and constitutional rights cases, he would be in it. Read about him here: http://jneedlel.home.mindspring.com/profiles.htm He got disciplined for slapping another lawyer at a deposition; he shouldn't have done that, but to downgrade him from the AVVO 10 rating he deserves to a 6 is ridiculous and a disservice to people who use AVVO to find representation. And if you're looking for a lawyer who really cares, who will be passionately on your side . . . well, think about it -- do you want a lawyer who will literally fight for you?
