Fighting for the rights of the individual for more than 30 years

Victims' Rights — Crime victims have significant rights, including the right to seek financial compensation from a perpetrator, and/or from others whose unreasonable conduct enabled the crime to occur.
Discrimination — The law, under various statutes, protects you against discrimination of many types, including racial discrimination, sex discrimination, age discrimination, and religious discrimination in employment, housing, and other settings.
Civil Rights — The Massachusetts, New York, and United States Constitutions, as well as many statutes, provide you with a wealth of rights and protections in many areas.
Working with Mark
Survivors of trauma and severe injuries rarely can afford to pay a lawyer. Understanding that, consultations are free and Mark accepts almost all of his cases on contingent fee – meaning that Mark only takes his fee if he is successful in helping his clients recover compensation. He also consults with other counsel on complex matters and regularly accepts case referrals.
