Client Testimonials

I am a letter carrier in Southwest Florida with over 20 years service. Like all of you, I felt the physical demands of my job taking a toll on my body but felt helpless to change the deteriorating workplace conditions. With my problems growing worse daily, and the inadequacy of the grievance procedure and how long it takes, I felt I had no recourse and would soon have my job in jeopardy.

I am here to tell you that there is a recourse, there is help.

Mr. Lenin Perez took up my cause and the recourse was far beyond my greatest expectations. Not only with the financial settlement for my job related medical problems, he has stood up and answered the Postal Service, restoring for me, dignity and respect that had eroded over the years of harassment.

I am very happy with the services I have received at FWCC. Lenny Perez and Bill Hackney are extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the areas of federal workers’ compensation and retirement. One of the things Iike about having them as my consultant advocates is that they generally take my calls immediately and, if they are not available, they are quick to get back with me to answer my questions.

The main thing I looked for when dealing with my U.S. Postal Service and federal workers’ compensation issues was advice from people who knew what it was like to deal with the USPS and OWCP. The reality is that only someone who has been there can truly understand what it’s like to have to battle these giant federal agencies to defend one’s rights. With Federal Workers’ Compensation Consultants, there is not much need to explain. Bill Hackney and Lenny Perez are both retired Postal Service employees who know exactly what it’s like to work for the Postal Service and to have to deal with OWCP.

When I think of those I consider Workers’ Compensation experts, Lenny Perez is at the top of the list. I walked into his office not knowing if I could file a successful workers’ compensation claim and not even knowing how to start. I walked out armed with loads of information and with the confidence that I could win my case, which I did thanks to the helpful information provided to me by Mr. Perez. It is possible to defend your case against the Postal Service and OWCP and to win when you have a knowledgeable and able advocate. Bill and Lenny know their stuff and they are ready to put it to work for you.

My name is Evelyn Craig. I have been employed with the United States Postal Service as a clerk for almost 19 years. I was being harassed by management because of my usuage of Family Medical Leave for my diabetes. I was harassed to the point of a mental and emotional breakdown. I filed some EEO’s, but didn’t know where to turn. There was so much paperwork to handle on my own.

I had heard about Lenin Perez’s organization, Federal Worker’s Compensations Consultants (FWCC), and I took all of my postal problems to Lenin and his staff. It was the beginning of a “new life” for me. FWCC immediately took my case. Lenin took me through the processes step by step. Everything went where it was supposed to go in a timely manner. Avenues I had never dreamed of opened up, all due to Lenin’s knowledge and expertise.

Lenin is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of problems postal employees have at the Postal Service. I strongly recommend to anyone who is having problems with the Postal Service to sign up with Lenin at FWCC. You will be glad you did!
