From the firm's press release:

June 19, 2013 – Washington, D.C. – Tully Rinckey PLLC is pleased to announce the addition of Courtney Mickman to the firm as an associate. With a background in labor, employment, and employee benefit cases, she brings valuable experience to the firm’s Labor and Employment Practice Group. At Tully Rinckey PLLC, she will concentrate her practice on representing federal employees in Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) litigation.

With Ms. Mickman’s hiring, Tully Rinckey PLLC has bolstered its commitment to the representation of federal employees before various administrative and judicial bodies. In the metropolitan Washington, D.C. area, the firm’s Labor and Employment Practice Group has grown significantly. Add to that a robust Military Law Practice and a Security Clearance Representation Practice Group that includes a former Defense Office of Hearings and Appeals (DOHA) administrative judge and former national security background investigator, and the total number of Tully Rinckey PLLC attorneys ready to fight for federal employees and service members climbs to 21.

"Courtney’s experience in various aspects of employment law will allow us to strengthen our commitment to representing federal employees,” said Tully Rinckey PLLC Managing Partner Greg T. Rinckey. "She has successfully helped both public and private sector employees bring claims against their employers, and that is a core of our firm.”

Prior to joining Tully Rinckey PLLC, Ms. Mickman worked at another Washington, D.C. law firm, where she prepared drafts and pleadings for everything from complaints to discovery requests and responses. Ms. Mickman has successfully defeated motions for summary judgment, and she has obtained several favorable client settlements that include reinstatement, extension of severance payments, and attorney fees. Ms. Mickman received her juris doctorate from the University of the District of Columbia’s David A. Clark Law School (UDC-DACSL), where she was a Dean’s Fellow, and was the recipient of the Fannie Lou Hamer Scholarship. Ms. Mickman was also a recipient of the Earl Davis Award given by the Olender Foundation for her outstanding work in the UDC-DACSL’s legal clinics. In law school, she served first as an associate editor and then as a senior editor of the UDC Law Review. She received her bachelor’s degree in sociology from George Washington University.

Ms. Mickman has already given much back to the community by serving as a student advocate for the UDC-DACSL’s Community Development Legal Clinic and Low-Income Taxpayer Clinic where she performed a combined 700-plus hours of legal services. She also volunteered with the D.C. Employment Justice Center’s Workers’ Right’s Clinic. Ms. Mickman is a member of the New Jersey Bar and Pennsylvania Bar.
