When you receive a civil service job disqualification such as a NYPD psych dq or FDNY medical disqualification it’s crucial that you meet with a civil service law attorney to discuss your case.

An attorney who is knowledgeable in the area will be able to explain to you the three steps to the appeal process. The attorney will be able to get your background, history and complete story of your application process, any interaction you may have had with the hiring agency’s interviewers and discuss with you the best way to approach an appeal.

This is best done in person. This time will be spent reviewing documents and discussing your life, education, work history and any jobs you may have had. It is also good to discuss what happened during the application process, whether it be background, medical or psychological. After discussing all of the facts, you can decide if you would like to act.

It is always best to communicate, get all the facts, discuss the strategy and decide if you would like to take action. Sometimes deferring to another test or looking at other jobs may be the best advice.

For more than 18 years now, I have been helping civil service job candidates file their appeals, along with advising them whether or not their appeal may be successful.
