A dispute over your employment can quickly become a complex and uncomfortable disruption to your life. At Segal Roitman, our goal is to help you anticipate disputes before they happen—or, where that is not possible, to help you resolve your disputes fairly, efficiently, and with minimal pain. To do so, we target three strategic areas: client counseling, negotiations, and litigation.

  • Understand Your Options

    The best way to solve a problem is to avoid it altogether. Employment relationships can be difficult to navigate, and only become more difficult as disagreements arise and tensions escalate. Worse, employees routinely hear that they are employed “at will,” with few rights or protections. In fact, you may have options under law, provided you know how to exercise them.

    Segal Roitman has expertise across the full range of workplace issues. By educating you on your rights in the workplace, Segal Roitman can help you steer clear of pitfalls and prevent harm to your job or career.

    Advice services we offer:

    • Legal strategy consultations
    • Risk assessment
    • Contract analysis
  • Maximize Your Leverage

    Starting or ending a job is one of the most important moves you will ever make. Whether you are choosing to transition or facing an involuntary termination, Segal Roitman can help you ensure that you make your move on favorable terms. Our firm has nearly three hundred years of collective experience negotiating with employers, in every industry and at every level from boardroom to basement. We understand the competing interests at play in employment matters, and we know how to make the most of your bargaining power.

    Negotiation services we offer:

  • Stand Up to Your Employer

    Honest work should mean honest pay, whether you are the executive in the corner office or the cashier at the corner store. Unfortunately, some employers do not follow the rules or listen to reason, making negotiations difficult or impossible. Where the employer will only respond to force, Segal Roitman’s attorneys know when and how to litigate cases. We have extensive experience before arbitrators, state and federal courts, and administrative agencies such as the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
