Bridget R. Mugane

Attorney at Law

Specializing solely in Foreign Service grievances for over 30 years, I can provide expert legal representation to save or advance a valuable diplomatic career. Litigating on behalf of both Foreign Service generalists and specialists worldwide, I have set numerous precedents strengthening employee rights and saving many jobs.

Grievances are legal proceedings. I provide full legal services rather than advising clients on pleadings they have drafted as a layperson; such pleadings often lack a legal theory based on cited regulations and laws, and are not adequately substantiated. Sometimes fatal errors are made that cannot be overcome later.

I research and write all pleadings, developing powerful legal arguments that utilize regulations and policies as well as case precedents. Working with you, I develop witness statements and identify exhibits as well as claiming all remedies to which you may be entitled. Over 80% of my cases have been won or favorably settled.

I represent employees at the Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the Foreign Commercial Service (FCS) as well as other foreign affairs agencies. Faced with a convincing, well-developed case, agencies often resolve the matter by settling with my clients at the outset.
