O’Brien Law Firm helps firefighter get $130K settlement for termination
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. On April 1, 2021, the federal court closed the case after the parties settled the firefighter’s claims for $130,000, with the firm’s client receiving $73,000 in his pocket after attorney fees and expenses were deducted. The client paid the O’Brien Law Firm nothing out of his pocket to represent him in the case. It was a privilege for the O’Brien Law Firm to help this worthy firefighter and military vet get a strong result.
