As outside counsel to the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association (FLEOA) I deal with many issues facing those charged with protecting us and our nation, but even they need help sometimes when dealing with the federal agency they work for. You too might need some help and the procedures you need to follow are not always clear. In fact, your case could be lost before you even get started if you don’t adhere to some specific requirements of your employer.
If you think you might need some help, call me, Fernando Alonso, at 201-478-6353.
