Postal Workers We’ve Helped

postal workers

postal workersAt Harris Federal Law Firm, many of our clients are postal workers at the U.S. Postal Service. This isn’t surprising, as the U.S. Postal Service employs almost a half million career employees and over 100,000 additional, non-career workers, which makes USPS the second largest civilian-employer after Wal-Mart.

The physical and repetitive nature of postal worker job duties can result in injury, and many federal workers turn to our firm for assistance with filing for federal disability retirement, OWCP federal workers’ compensation and other federal employment matters. Here are some comments from a few of our past clients:

“My experience with Harris Federal after knowing of two or three other people (through the years) who worked for the USPS and filed for OPM Disability through Harris Federal, was one of dealing with professionals who made me feel like they cared. From the beginning, I was given a “fair” assessment of my chances for success and a potential time frame that would be required to file. My initial contact understood my physical ailments which were making my life painfully unable to continue on in a working capacity and agreed I had a good case. I was assigned a caseworker (Candace Montgomery) who was compassionate, knowledgeable, understanding, forthright and led me step by step through the necessary paperwork. She was accessible and moved quickly in gathering statements from doctors and completing her end of the paperwork. Harris Federal knows their business and how to maneuver through and around the red tape of filing for disability. When you are suffering and speed of filing matters, you want someone who cares, understands and knows exactly what to do and will do it in a timely manner. I received my disability in the minimum amount of time to be expected. I was given a much broader time frame that might have been necessary if they had to go through appeals but was advised when I would likely get my disability based on the caseworker workload at OPM, my conditions and what time of the year it was filed. I was recommended to Harris Federal by someone I had worked with for years who had to file for disability a few years ago. I can recommend them myself without reservation!”

“They [Harris Federal Law Firm] completed my application in a timely and professional manner. They helped me through this process and always asked if I had any questions and gave me prompt answers, when I did have questions.

M.V., Colorado — Federal Disability Retirement

“Thank you so much [Leah Bachmeyer Kille] for your help. Last week my son looked at the computer and said my claim had been accepted and by Saturday, it was in the bank. Things have been a little tough since my husband passed away — so now, I can breath. Again, thank you and I will certainly recommend you.”

– L. J., California –OWCP Workers’ Compensation

“Through working and training hard we seldom think about the possibility or need of a medical retirement in the federal government. During the unknown and the long process of applying for a medical retirement, I felt reassured by the experience Harris Federal has. My case manager was experienced and answered my concerns promptly. Thank you for a job well done.”

– B.T., Florida — Federal Disability Retirement

“Harris Federal Law Firm is like family. Leah Bachmeyer Kille did a tremendous job handling my MSPB case. When I was looking for for a law firm to represent me, I was originally afraid to go with a law firm that was out of state. Regardless, I read the testimonials of other people on the Harris Federal Law Firm website, and decided to have them represent me in my case with USPS. I am telling you the truth, it was the best thing I ever did in my life. Harris Federal Law Firm is the real deal. I paid a retainer fee that was very fair, and they did not use all of the money, and sent the unused balance back to me. They litigated a very strong settlement. If you need representation, I highly recommend the Harris Federal Law Firm. They treat you very well and do a great job!”
