The O’Brien Law Firm has been representing a former firefighter for a Highland Lakes-area city in Austin federal court, over his claim that he was terminated by the city in violation of his rights under the USERRA – the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act – in connection with his military service and frequent need to take military leave.
