For over a decade, Harris Federal Law Firm has been helping injured federal workers with their workers compensation claims, federal disability retirement cases and various other benefits available to federal employees.
Our first federal employee case was a USPS letter carrier injured on the job. Not only did he become a close family friend, he even worked for us assisting other federal employees after we successfully represented him. Since then, our family and team have invested years researching and educating ourselves and others on federal employee rights. Our experience allows us to inform HR managers and claims examiners of appropriate protocol in dealing with our clients every day. We have added staff and grown to the point that we can proudly report that we have helped thousands of federal employees around the nation to get the benefits they deserve.
Your work as a federal employee has been important to you and your service has been valuable to our country. Because of this, we take pride in helping federal employees. Our team focuses on providing the quality service necessary to earn the trust our clients place in us every day.
