Client Recommends Marc Smith

“Marc Smith helped me get a waiver for the Selective Service requirement (I did not know to register when I turned 18) so that I could accept a job in the federal government. I found Marc's website and called him frantically when my future employer was ready to rescind my job offer because of the Selective Service issue. Marc seems to be the only lawyer I could find that specializes in this issue. It generally takes 6-8 months for the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) to review the waiver applications -- and my future employer was not willing to wait that long. Marc told me that his cases generally take 4-6 weeks and he has had over 40 successes (and zero failures). That assurance convinced my future employer to hold my job for a few weeks while I navigated the process with Marc. He was incredibly knowledgeable, ready with a streamlined and perfected strategy, knew all the forms and documents I needed to present a compelling case to OPM. With his help I was able to prepare a 50-page dossier to present to OPM in less than a week from the time I first met with him, including my own 12-page statement that he helped me write and a dozen other signed statements. (He scheduled me in the day after I first called.) He was very responsive throughout the whole process, answering my emails promptly and thoroughly, drawing on the wisdom of his tremendous experience working on these issues. His many contacts at OPM and the Selective Service office were invaluable along the way, helping to expedite the process and make sure my file got in front of the right people. At the end of the day, we were able to get the waiver two weeks after we submitted the application! His fees are very reasonable, especially considering his rare expertise on these matters. I am incredibly satisfied with my experience with Marc and do not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”
