How We Help
We will pay attention to you. We will keep you informed throughout the duration of your matter. And we will never stop advocating for you.
Discrimination at work based on age, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and disability / medical condition (including pregnancy) is illegal. Discrimination may include decisions involving hiring, pay, promotion, and/or termination.
If you have been the subject of illegal workplace discrimination, call us for a free consultation. Learn about your rights and how we can help.
If you’ve been injured by someone else, we can protect your rights and seek full and fair compensation on your behalf. We offer a free consultation, contingency fee representation, and have decades of experience in obtaining victories for injured clients at trial and through negotiation.
Don’t go it alone against those causing injury and their team of insurance companies and lawyers. Call us today and find out how we can help.
Employers, landlords, and large corporations often feel that they can treat employees and consumers illegally because the money involved is too small to be take a case to court. They are wrong.
When these people or companies inflict the same wrong on dozens of people or more, we seek class action status so that the combined weight of many plaintiffs can be used to call attention to the illegal practice, and so that fair compensation can be obtained for all class members.
Absent a contract or collective bargaining agreement, employers are free to terminate at-will employees for any reason or no reason at all – except that they cannot fire an employee on the basis of age, gender, disability (including pregnancy), race, sexual orientation, religion, or nationality.
We fight for clients who are wrongly terminated based upon an illegal reason.
If you’ve been wrongly terminated, call us and learn how we can help.
No one deserves to be sexually harassed at work. Sexual harassment is illegal under both federal and Massachusetts law.
We have long represented the victims of workplace sexual harassment. We seek justice and fair compensation, and help give back power to sexual harassment victims. We also want to send a message to employers that sexual harassment or retaliation in any form will not be tolerated.
We accept many sexual harassment cases on a contingency fee basis. Please call us or click the link below to find out more about how we can help.
SEVERANCE & EMPLOYMENT AGREEMENTS
If you are negotiating with an employer for a severance or employment agreement, we can help. These agreements often contain a number of restrictions, which may include your right to compete or to engage in certain types of work if you no longer work for the company.

DEFAMATION & SLANDER
It’s easy to become a victim of defamation or slander – online, through social media or other websites, or offline through TV, newspapers, or even at work.
We understand the importance of your good name and reputation. If you are the subject of libel or slander, we can seek to hold the perpetrators responsible to the full extent of the law.
Call us to learn how we can help.
WAGE & HOUR VIOLATIONS
State and federal laws have strict requirements concerning compensation. Some companies, however, violate these laws by not properly compensating employees, such as not paying them to drive to a location as part of their job, wrongfully deducting money from their paychecks, failing to pay overtime, or illegally withholding commissions.
As an employment law firm, we represent workers on a contingency fee basis when employers fail to follow wage and hour laws. Call us to learn how we can help.

My husband and I were clients of Attorney Fogelman’s. His handling of our case was more than professional and his understanding of the law impeccable. The outcome of our jury trial was better then we could have ever imagined.
Hiring Matt as my lawyer was the best decision I made! He worked diligently and aggressively. He answered my hundreds of e-mails timely, thoroughly and honestly. Matt took the time to confer one on one and made sure I understood the legal process.
