Drunk Driving Defense ∙ Employment Law ∙ Serious Injury

  • DUI/DWI/OUI. We strongly believe that the penalties for drunk driving are unfairly excessive compared to the offense. In a country with a transportation system built around the automobile, drunk driving laws often punish people who simply made a poor judgment call by driving after one drink too many. Our Worcester drunk driving defense attorney handles all matters related to drunk driving charges, from defending clients at OUI/DUI/DWI administrative hearings on drivers' license suspension and hardship licenses to effectively asserting their interests through criminal proceedings to avoid conviction when possible or minimize penalties if convicted. We carefully examine all aspects of the arrest, including the administration of field sobriety and Breathalyzer tests and challenging field sobriety tests. To learn more about how we can help, see our page on why you should hire a DUI attorney.
  • Employee discrimination. Our Massachusetts employment discrimination lawyer protects the rights of individuals who have been subjected to discrimination in the workplace, including sexual harassment and gender/sex discrimination, age discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, disability discrimination, race discrimination or any other form of employment discrimination. We also represent the interests of employees in employment retaliation/wrongful termination claims arising in connection with a discrimination, harassment or any other employment dispute.
  • Unemployment hearings. We aggressively represent individuals who have been wrongfully denied unemployment benefits in Massachusetts. Our experience handling unemployment appeals makes us an asset for individuals who need assistance standing up to receive the full unemployment benefits to which they are entitled.
  • Long-term disability. Have you been denied long-term disability benefits to which you believe you are entitled? Have your long-term benefits been suddenly terminated? Most long-term disability plans are governed by the Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and cases frequently favor the denial decisions made by the insurance company. It is important to have an experienced lawyer on your side who is knowledgeable in ERISA who can assert your interests and help you navigate the legal process. Our law firm offers the experience, knowledge and resources you need.
  • Workers' compensation. We represent people who have been injured in the workplace. We help you recover the compensation you need and deserve under the Massachusetts workers' compensation system. We handle all types of on-the-job injuries, including back strains, herniated discs, repetitive use injuries, carpal tunnel, torn knee or disc, torn rotator cuff and neck strain.
  • Personal injury. We work closely with individuals who have suffered personal injury because of the careless or negligent acts of others. We handle a broad range of claims including car, truck and motorcycle accidents, slip-and-falls and dog bite injuries.
