I found Edgar Ndjatou, Esq. of McCree Ndjatou, PLLC through an online search for attorneys who are experienced with federal EEO matters.
Mr. Ndjatou and his team helped me during every step of my discrimination complaint. Edgar took the time to explain what to expect during negotiations and how different scenarios would affect my situation and overall outcome. Edgar explained what time frames I could expect for my situation and was conscientious in keeping me informed with what my financial responsibilities would be for different scenarios. I especially appreciated that working with Edgar made me feel that I was not fighting my battle alone. Edgar was at my side during every meeting and involved with every conversation. He diligently fought for the best outcome and did not allow the Agency to bully me into a settlement that was not advantageous for me.
I would recommend Edgar Ndjatou, Esq. and McCree Ndjatou to anyone who is a federal employee and in need of an honest, hardworking and knowledgeable attorney and law firm.
I approached McCree Ndjatou, PLLC with an age discrimination case I had against a former employer. I was referred to them by a client of mine. They came highly recommended as a firm with integrity, perseverance, and expertise. Once I met with Edgar Ndjatou, I felt he was more than competent to handle my case.
Mr. Ndjatou does more listening than talking and is very empathetic – qualities which were important to me. Mr. Ndjatou is patient and helpful. I always felt that we were a team. Throughout the discovery process, Edgar and his colleague, John Daroff, worked with me to present my case clearly and effectively. Because of their guidance, I felt comfortable answering questions from opposing counsel during my deposition.
When the time came to attend a mediation, Mr. Ndjatou and Mr. Daroff kept me at ease because of their professionalism and knowledge in dealing with opposing counsel, the settlement Judge, and the law. As a result, we achieved a favorable outcome in my case, with which I am pleased.
Lawsuits are fraught with emotion. For a layperson, the uncertainty of not understanding the law, not being able to ascertain your chances of winning your case, and not knowing how to pick the correct attorney can impede the chances of a successful outcome. I’m so glad McCree Ndjatou was recommended to me. I would recommend the firm to others without hesitation. In fact, if the need arose (which I’m hoping it never will) I would gladly use them again.
I hired Edgar to handle my severance negotiations following being laid off from my company under questionable and discriminatory circumstances. Edgar was extremely knowledgeable about the specifics of employment law and severance matters based on his previous experience and background in the DC Metro area, which led me to choose him. In addition, his direct approach and fair fee structure made me confident in my choice over other attorneys/firms. Edgar was extremely attentive as he listened to my case, discussed my options, and we agreed upon a solid plan of action. Throughout the process he was very responsive; he followed up on my questions and concerns in a timely manner. He handled the severance negotiation efficiently and effectively, which mitigated much of my stress surrounding the case. Edgar succeeded in having the company extend my severance by several weeks, beyond their standard policy—which I would have not been able to achieve if I negotiated on my own. I highly recommend hiring Edgar based on his professionalism, tactful approach, and integrity to people who need an attorney who specializes in employment law, discrimination, and severance negotiations.
