The Practice

The Law Office of Peter Broida provides representation in replies to adverse action and performance-based actions; initiation of whistleblower reprisal complaints with OSC; MSPB appeals throughout the country; Federal Circuit review of MSPB decisions; arbitration of federal sector grievances; EEO hearings and appeals; mediation; settlement negotiations; and VA Disciplinary Appeals Board representation.

Most of our representation is for individuals. We represent unions for issues that develop during the bargaining relationship and on a case-by-case basis. We provide advice or representation to federal agencies—usually small agencies that need counsel specialized in civil service law or larger agencies with a conflict of interest within a management group or within agency counsel's office.

There Are Three Components To Our Work With You

  1. THE INTAKE: You call our office and some basic information about you and the issue is taken by the person answering the phone. Based on the intake, we determine whether it is in your best interest to proceed with a consultation and possible representation.

  2. THE CONSULTATION: We review your case and offer our advice on the merits of the case or situation, whether representation is advisable, and, if so, what the process entails and what the likely cost will be. The consultation usually lasts from 30 minutes to an hour, and the charge for the consultation is $200.

  3. REPRESENTATION & RETAINER: Representation is through a written retainer agreement explaining the work to be done, the hourly rate to be charged, and the advance retainer payment that is placed into a trust account against which our itemized monthly bills are paid.
