I found Alan through Nolo. I had no prior experience getting legal advice, and I was pretty sure I understood the implications of the agreements I'd signed with my employer, but I needed to be sure. I purchased a 1-hour consultation for $300, and I'm not going to lie, I felt a bit of sticker shock....

I originally contacted two other firms before speaking with Mr. Alan Lescht. The two other firms after speaking to them on the phone did not review any of the documents that I sent, both requesting payment for consultation. A totally different and positive experience with Mr. Alan Lescht. After I...

I had only consulted with Mr. Lescht and hadn't yet hired him to represent me against my agency. I realized that I was about to miss a very important deadline to move forward with my complaint due to my own oversight. Even though I hadn't hired Mr. Lescht, he responded right away to my urgent email...

I dealt with Alan and Jack for an extended period in 2017 involving a somewhat complex federal employment situation. I could not have been more pleased with their professionalism and expert counsel. They were honest, direct, and responsive, and I could not have asked for more. Should need arise... Reviews Reviews

I just finished my case with the firm and I was very happy with the representation I received and the results they got for me. The paralegal that handled the case was very professional and Kevin was very clear and helpful in answering all my questions to decide whether to go to trial or settle. User

I have always had great representation from Kevin and his Office. They are always on top to the case and communicate with me regularly. I always refer him to my friends and family. Kevin is great to work with and really knows his stuff.
