How We Can Help
Your Employment Law Solutions
Employment discrimination is unlawful. If you believe you were singled out based on race, gender, disability, or other protected class, we can help you understand whether you have a legal claim and pursue compensation if you do.
It is illegal under Massachusetts wage and hour laws for an employer to withhold wages or commissions, or overtime pay for eligible employees. We can help you get what you are owed, or ensure your business is not at risk due for a wage and hour lawsuit.
You have a right to be free from sexual harassment at work. If you report harassment, your employer has a duty to investigate fairly and not to retaliate against you. We can help if you believe these rights have been violated.
If you are working as an independent contractor, you may be missing important benefits and protections the law gives to employees. Contact us to find out if you have been misclassified and how you can make it right.

Your Estate Planning Solutions
We know worst case scenarios are unlikely to happen, but it's our job to plan for them anyway. Even a simple estate plan can ensure that your minor children have guardians and funds in case something happens to both parents.
In Massachusetts, it is easier to find yourself owing estate tax than you might think. Even when you don't think you're rich. We can help you put a plan in place that saves as much of your hard-earned legacy as possible for your loved ones.
If you or your spouse need long term care/assisted living, you can quickly wipe out all you have worked so hard to build to pay for it. We can help you create an asset protection trust to help you qualify for assistance and preserve assets.
If you are too sick to make decisions, it is critical to have someone you trust to make decisions for you. We can help with a health care proxy to make sure your doctors have clear guidance and your wishes are honored.
Your business and financial affairs matter as well if you are too sick to make decisions. We can help with a Power of Attorney to give someone you trust the legal right to take care of your financial and business decisions.
Without an estate plan, your family could spend a year or more in court (and money on lawyers) to settle your estate. A comprehensive plan can minimize or avoid altogether the need for your family to hire lawyers and go to court.

Your Business Law Solutions
If you do not have solid contracts in place in your business, you may find yourself in litigation if something goes wrong. We create clear and understandable contracts to make sure your interests are protected.
The last thing you need is an expensive employee lawsuit. The truth is most of these suits come from common mistakes that are easily avoided. We help steer you away from those traps before they become a problem.
If you have to let someone go, an ounce of prevention is worth at least a pound of cure. We provide a roadmap for the termination process that steers you away from common legal mistakes and manages any risk you may have.
Defending a lawsuit was not part of your plan, but sometimes it happens. When it does, you want someone in your corner who will not only defend you but make it a priority to get to resolution as quickly as possible.
