Best Lawyers Selects R. Scott Oswald and Nicholas Woodfield of The Employment Law Group® Law Firm for Best Lawyers in America 2015

Third Year in a Row for Both Attorneys

WASHINGTON, Aug. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- R. Scott Oswald and Nicholas Woodfield of The Employment Law Group® law firm were selected once again by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America guide.

It was the third consecutive listing for both Mr. Oswald and Mr. Woodfield. Best Lawyers bases its prestigious guide on a nationwide poll of leading attorneys in each practice area; more than 50,000 lawyers voted in the survey for the 2015 edition.

Mr. Oswald and Mr. Woodfield were chosen for their representation of employees who challenge fraud, discrimination, and other wrongdoing in the workplace.

"Nick and I are proud of this recognition, which extends to our entire firm," said Mr. Oswald, managing principal of The Employment Law Group. "We've had an active year, seeking justice for employees everywhere from county courthouses to the U.S. Supreme Court. Our primary goal is always to earn the trust of our clients, but the respect of our peers is a wonderful bonus."

Mr. Oswald is a past president of the Metropolitan Washington Employment Lawyers Association. He speaks publicly on laws that protect employees, and is quoted frequently by media outlets including The Wall Street Journal. He was chosen by employee advocates to draft an amicus curiae brief in the historic Lawson case, which resulted this spring in the Supreme Court's expansion of whistleblower protections under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.

"To be included in Best Lawyers is an acknowledgment that our firm is practicing law at the highest level," said Mr. Woodfield, a principal at The Employment Law Group. "Our expertise is endorsed by others in our profession — and that means potential clients can feel confident about the representation they'll receive from our firm."

Washingtonian magazine recently named Mr. Woodfield as one of the "Top Lawyers" in Washington, D.C. He is a frequent speaker, panelist, and media commenter, especially on retaliation claims and the proper application of the Fair Labor Standards Act. Mr. Woodfield is president of the Virginia Employment Lawyers Association.

In addition to being recognized by Best Lawyers, attorneys at The Employment Law Group have received accolades from legal authorities including Super Lawyers, Martindale-Hubbell, and American Lawyer Media. The Employment Law Group was chosen by U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers for the 2014 listing of "Best Law Firms," and Lawyer Monthly named the firm as Labor & Employment Law Firm of the Year in the United States for three years running.

Best Lawyers has published its influential legal rankings for more than three decades; Corporate Counsel magazine has called it "the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice."
