Described by clients as “exceptional” and “a true lawyer’s lawyer,” Alan Lescht has long been recognized as one of the best employment lawyers in Washington, DC. Newsweek, Washingtonian Magazine, Super Lawyers, and the Top Ten Leaders Program have featured Alan as one of DC’s premier employment attorneys.

Alan has represented clients in employment discrimination, civil rights, and commercial litigation for more than 30 years and has won dozens of notable trials. He is the founding partner of Alan Lescht and Associates, PC, where he oversees the firm’s employment litigation and counseling practices.

Alan provides legal counsel to federal workers and other employees in cases involving contract disputes; discrimination based on age, disability, national origin, race, religion, sex, sexual identity/orientation; hostile work environment; sexual harassment; wrongful termination; and other issues. He has helped hundreds of workers keep or regain their jobs, and recover monetary damages.

He has written extensively on employment law issues and has been quoted in The Washington Post, Federal Employees News Digest, Lawyers.com, National Public Radio, CBS, and ABC. Alan is a member of the American Bar Association, the District of Columbia Bar Association, the National Employment Lawyers Association, and the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association.
