Stephanie E. Hosea, Esq.
Stephanie Hosea is an experienced employment law attorney who is committed to protecting and advancing the rights of federal employees nationwide. Ms. Hosea has been representing employees for over a decade. After graduating from UCLA Law School in 2003, Ms. Hosea represented workers in a variety of legal matters at two nonprofit organizations. Ms. Hosea then represented federal employees at two prominent federal employment law firms in Washington D.C. prior to opening her own practice.
Ms. Hosea graduated from Johns Hopkins University in 1998 with a bachelor of arts in English. In 2003, she earned her juris doctorate from UCLA School of Law. During law school, Ms. Hosea worked at the ACLU of Southern California and a well-respected civil rights law firm in Washington, D.C.
Stephanie Hosea represents federal employees nationwide in administrative forums such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the Merit Systems Protection Board (MSPB). Ms. Hosea is also admitted to practice law in the courts of Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, including the District Court of D.C., the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, and the District Court of New Jersey.
Ms. Hosea recently prevailed at a MSPB hearing in which a federal employee was reinstated with full back pay and restoration of benefits. Last May, Ms. Hosea successfully represented a federal government worker in an EEOC hearing, resulting in a decision awarding the employee $120,000 and significant equitable remedies. Among her other accomplishments, Ms. Hosea negotiated a $115,000 settlement for a federal employee who was subject to a discriminatory removal and an $87,500 settlement for a disabled federal employee who was denied a reasonable accommodation. Many of Ms. Hosea's written and oral replies to proposed disciplinary and adverse actions have resulted in mitigation or rescission of those proposed actions. In one recent case, Ms. Hosea and her client successfully persuaded a deciding official that the agency's proposed demotion was too harsh and should be mitigated to a letter of reprimand.
Ms. Hosea is an active member of the Metropolitan Washington Area Employment Law Association (MWELA), where she is part of a community of attorneys dedicated to advocating for the legal rights of employees. She also has developed co-counseling relationships with other employment lawyers.
