I'm a former Federal Employee . I pursued my own defense (self-appointed Lawyer). After many threats and attempts by the agency to throw me off my game, the EEOC Admin Judge had acknowledged my case. Now, the agency offered me a settlement, because they know I have enough evidence to win in the courts of law. The agency’s (base) attorney never responded after I gave him 2 options while representing myself.
I strongly feel that, if I have a good Lawyer who would take the time to fight for me then, I will have a better chance for a better/just settlement. I am only living off of my husband's Military Retirement pay hence I am looking for an experienced Federal Lawyer who can represent me on a contingency basis.
