Litigation - Labor & Employment

The Employment Law Group knows their stuff when it comes to employment law. Being a seasoned professional employee fully knowledgeable in employment & environmental law, I still found this firm to be extremely professional and knowledgeable. They brought knowledge and specifically the experience working within the formal court system to bring my case to a positive end.

The support staff at The Employment Law Group was very friendly and responsive when scheduling my meeting. Mr. Scott Oswald was the attorney I met with, and he was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Mr. Oswald had an absolute understanding of all aspects of the laws regarding my case and broke it down for me in a way that was very concise and easy to digest. It is rare to find an expert in a subject who is also able to present their expertise in a way that everyone can understand. I was incredibly happy with his demeanor, compassion, and understanding of the situation. I would highly recommend The Employment Law Group and Mr. Oswald in particular to anyone who needs legal advice or representation. You will not find a more knowledgeable, compassionate, or harder working lawyer in D.C.

The Employment Law Group has a budding Whistleblower practice. I filed a FIRREA Whistleblower case in April 2014 against Financial Freedom, a Division of OneWest Bank and now CIT. I was the sole Relator. I interviewed several DC law firms and chose The Employment Law Group because of their passion, communication skills, and responsiveness. I felt an immediate affinity with Dave Scher, who was primary on my case. We had a great partnership and mutual passion for consumer protections. Their expertise in the law and Whistleblower process matched my expertise in Reverse Mortgages, Federal Regulations and consumer protections. It was important and a deciding factor that the law firm I chose was passionate about my work to prevent seniors and their families from wrongful foreclosure and displacement and to expose inflated FHA insurance claims costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars.

Litigation - Labor & Employment

We won a settlement in May 2017 thanks to The Employment Law Group. I was the first individual to ever receive the maximum $1.6 Million award in a FIRREA Claim. I was also the first individual, agency, or corporation to win any action against Financial Freedom.I am thrilled with the work of The Employment Law Group and Dave Scher and would highly recommend them!

In my experience The Employment Law Group is an exceptional law firm. The team of attorneys led by R. Scott Oswald and Adam Carter as his deputy and additional associates was making the most painful experience bearable emotionally and financially as well. They impressed me with their tight processes and the readiness of explaining anytime what’s going to happen next. They were cautious and conservative in their estimates in every aspects of the litigation. I learned a great deal by observing their professionalism. In retrospect, the entire affair, though unpleasant, remains in my memory as a victory. What more should one hope for?

My best first impression with The Employment Law Group was with Chardé Olafemi, the consummate professional. She was pleasant, patient and confident. The next person I spoke with was Scott Oswald. He was attentive and clearly competent and took the time necessary to explain to me why he did not think my case had standing. Ms. Olafemi and Mr. Oswald both took ownership of my problem and expressed sincere empathy and support of what I felt was a wrongdoing. While I was not able to take advantage of the firm’s expertise, I will certainly call upon them if I ever have an employment issue again.

My entire experience with The Employment Law Group was exceptional. They were incredibly responsive to any question I had and were excellent at providing me all the information and advice I needed regarding if and how to move forward in my case. My entire The Employment Law Group team made what would otherwise be an extremely difficult and stressful process much less difficult and so much less stressful and they were also extremely mindful of minimizing my expenses. In the end they were able to provide me with a positive outcome in my case, all the while dealing with an unresponsive and ill-prepared opposing legal team. A friend recommended The Employment Law Group to me and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone in need of legal advice or representation in employment law.
