You can certainly do that, but legally speaking if they want you to work with the AD to try and resolve this issue, they can do that. Nothing in external law would impose on the employer the obligation to work with you in a certain way when trying to resolve a termination issue. The employer has that discretion.
So really, if the employer is not willing to work with you through the attorney or the CEO directly, there is no way to make them do it and your letter could go ignored.
You'd then have to make an appropriate filing, depending on what your argument here is. For discrimination, you'd file a complaint with the EEOC or Department of Labor. For a breach of contract, you'd sue in state court. Even after filing that sort of suit, the employer would then work through their attorneys and your own.
