Is Your Career in Good Hands?
FEDS Cases are won and lost based on the quality of legal representation.
If you become the target of an allegation or investigation, one of the first things the agency or investigators will want to know is who is your liability carrier – or – who is your attorney.
When choosing a professional liability carrier, you are essentially choosing the attorneys that will represent you. Not all attorneys are equally skilled, competent or experienced. One of the reasons FEDS Protection is endorsed and recommended by the leading federal law enforcement associations is due to the quality of the legal representation we provide. FEDS policy holders are represented by the leading federal employment law and federal practice law firms. They understand how agencies work and have extensive experience dealing with federal agencies and Congress. They represent federal law enforcement officers (LEOs) in investigations conducted by all federal agencies as well as the Department of Justice, and the Offices of the Inspector General. They litigate cases before the federal courts, the Merit Systems Protection Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the Foreign Service Grievance Board.
FEDS policyholder attorneys are focused on executing representation of federal LEOs professionally, effectively, and efficiently. They understand how to navigate the challenging and delicate process of a government investigation providing every FEDS policyholder with a full-scale legal strategy.
Do you have your liability insurance with FEDS Protection? Meet your outstanding legal counsel online, or give us a call at 866-955-FEDS. We also recommend all federal LEOs to become members of FLEOA. The agency reimburses up to half the cost of FEDS Protection for all federal LEOs so the combined annual premium for FEDS Protection and FLEOA costs less than one hour with an attorney (if you don’t have protection in place).
FLEOA represents more than 25,000 LEOs, is a charter member of the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Working Group, holds two seats on the Congressional Badge of Bravery Federal Board, and serves on the Executive Board of the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund and the National Law Enforcement Steering Committee. Unlike other carriers, FEDS will not deny your claim if you initially get legal advice through FLEOA, and later need to invoke your insurance benefits.
FEDS provides professional liability insurance for the entire federal law enforcement community.
