Protecting Employees From Wage and Overtime Violations

The workplace is full of difficulties. Fighting for your rights in an Employment related claim doesn’t have to be one of them. Our experienced attorneys represent people whose rights at work have been violated by their employer or at work. We strive to obtain the best possible results as quickly and efficiently as possible. We have represented employees before the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, Massachusetts district and superior courts, and the U.S. District Court, District of Massachusetts. We handle most cases on a contingent-fee basis, you only pay us if we recover money for you. Call us for a free confidential consultation.

If you are owed money…

We represent employees who are owed wages, including overtime, commissions, tips and paid time off/vacation time.  Our attorneys have successfully represented restaurant workers, salespeople and professionals in almost every other line of work. 

If you’re called an independent contractor…

If you’re given a 1099 not a W-2 at the end of the year you may still be entitled to overtime as a misclassified employee.  Our experienced attorneys can tell you whether you have a claim.   For instance, we have successfully represented commercial cleaners and construction workers who were called independent contractors and not paid the wages and benefits they were entitled to.
