Learn About Our Personal Injury Practice   



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.

Learn About Our Class Action Practice   



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.

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.

Learn About Our Severance & Employment Practice  



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.

We help victims of sexual abuse and sexual assault, including those who have been abused by perpetrators in educational, religious, and other organizations. [We also represent those abused in foster care as the result of CPS negligence.] We have obtained successful outcomes in a number of cases against family members, relatives, youth organizations, religious institutions, and local municipalities.

We help empower victims to take back their lives by holding perpetrators responsible, as well as those organizations that permit sexual abuse and assault to occur.

Matt and his team were amazing to work with. He took one of the more difficult situations we’ve been in and removed most of the headaches for, while working hard to get a fair settlement at the end of the case. He was warm and caring with us as his clients, while also clearly direct and good at negotiating with the opposition. We would turn to him again in a second if we ever needed representation.

I’ve worked with Matt over many years on multiple employee-side matters. Matt’s command of employment law and ability to see the bigger context was invaluable in conducting successful negotiations. In addition, Matt was clear when other experts were required, leading to greater confidence in the final product.

With no hesitation, I would work with Matt on any employment matter in the future.

I had an exceptional experience with the attorneys at Fogleman Law.

I had worked with two other law firms on the same case before meeting attorneys Matt and Jeff; from then on, my burdens were lifted.

Matt and Jeff handled my case with extreme care. They were highly organized, methodical, well-prepared, professional, empathetic and compassionate. Every step of the process was masterfully executed.

They kept me well informed; were unwavering in their support; and truly made me feel like part of the team. There were also never any surprises, which was refreshing.

I truly can’t say enough about the amazing experience I had there. These are true professionals and I join the many others on this platform who highly recommend this firm.
