Representing Clients in the Area of City & County Employee Rights
City and county employees, as well as school teachers, have the right to grieve harassment or unfair treatment, and they have the right to a hearing before a grievance panel if terminated. In these cases, a city or municipal government entity will generally be represented by an attorney from the city attorney’s office.
Our Virginia government employee rights lawyers are strong, experienced advocates who will be prepared to present a compelling case before this panel. Over our firm’s history, we have been successful at overturning terminations before local government boards.
