Many long time federal employees never thought they would face an administrative investigation/disciplinary action and certainly never thought they would need to secure personal counsel. Whether the complaint comes from a politically motivated elected official, criminal defendant, subordinate employee or other employee, or a member of the public—the thought that an investigation requiring legal counsel could never happen to you is naïve.
