During 2018, members took full advantage of ASPTEA’s legal benefits. The law firm of Napier, Coury & Baillie, P.C., namely Attorney Eric R. Wilson, worked over 500 hours in 2018 on a variety of legal issues to further members’ interests. As you might expect, the majority of time was spent on member disciplinary matters. Out of 16 disciplinary appeals, Mr. Wilson has successfully advocated favorable outcomes in 15 disciplinary matters this year. Without ASPTEA membership and legal coverage, each disciplinary matter could cost anywhere from $5,000 to $12,500 for legal representation. ASPTEA members pay nothing extra and receive competent, zealous representation in disciplinary matters.

ASPTEA continues to strive for due process and fair outcomes for its members. Mr. Wilson also worked closely with other labor association and stakeholders to improve the appeals process before the Civil Service Board. Mr. Wilson advised over 30 members involved in investigations (NOIs) and pre-termination procedures. This type of advice has proven crucial to help prevent members from incriminating themselves in further policy violations during investigations. In 2018, 28 members took advantage of the estate document preparation services provided under ASPTEA’s legal benefits and over 30 members received legal consultations on a variety of legal matters. Since 1976, ASPTEA has been provided with the most comprehensive and affordable legal benefits for its members. The law firm of Napier, Coury & Baillie, P.C. continues to cherish that relationship and wishes every ASPTEA member a happy and healthy 2019.
