Is Michael J. Madigan, Esq. Credible?

Dear Mr. Zuklie:

I sent an email message to your law partner Michael J. Madigan, Esq. (Washington) inquiring into representation in a worker's compensation claim.  Mr. Madigan stated that neither he nor anyone at Orrick could represent me.  I subsequently learned that, in fact, Orrick handles worker's comp cases:

Founded in 1885, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe is an international law firm that offers representation to individuals and corporate clients throughout North America, Europe and Asia. It maintains offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, London, Los Angeles, Moscow, Paris and Tokyo. The firm practices in the areas of creditors' rights, bankruptcy litigation, public finance, and mergers and acquisitions. It also handles cases related to intellectual property and real estate, banking and finance law. Additionally, Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe deals in matters concerning workers compensation, commercial litigation, product liability, taxation and employment law.  The firm's attorneys are members of the New York State Bar Association, State Bar of California, Paris Bar Association and Beirut Bar Association. Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe maintains a location in San Francisco.

I certainly hope that Mr. Madigan will demonstrate more forthcoming with federal law enforcement than he did with me.

Mr. Madigan:

I am writing to inquire whether you would consent to represent me pro bono in the following matter.  I intend to file a worker's compensation claim regarding injuries I sustained during my employment at Akin Gump (1988-1991).  You are possibly knowledgeable about my employment experience at Akin Gump, and would bring the tenacity of character and legal expertise this matter requires.  The following email message I sent to Dennis Race will explain the claim in detail. If you cannot represent me, perhaps you could refer me to another DC attorney, one of your colleagues at Orrick, perhaps?

Thank you.
