As a Member of John Chung Law, you will receive legal representation from an experienced attorney with specialized expertise in the Department’s employee discipline process. For any act of alleged misconduct that occurs during your membership period, your attorney will meet with you before your subject interview by the Office of Internal Affairs to fully discuss your case. Your attorney will accompany you to the interview to ensure that your rights are not violated. If you are disciplined, your attorney will perform a legal analysis of the Department’s notice of adverse action. Your attorney will advocate on your behalf at the Skelly hearing and, if necessary, will file your appeal to the State Personnel Board. Your attorney will also file all of the necessary pleadings with the Board and will negotiate on your behalf at the pre-hearing settlement conference. If the case is confirmed for a hearing, your attorney will pay for all the necessary costs associated with presenting the evidence necessary for your defense.
