  • Peter T. Lane

    I endorse Raymond Dinsmore without hesitation. Attorney Dinsmore is a conscientious and zealous advocate for the rights of employees who have been discriminated against or are owed back wages. His experience and knowledge are not only a great asset to the individuals he represents, but also to our local economy that relies on a fair and equitable workplace.

  • Erick Ignacio Diaz

    Attorney Dinsmore is one of a handful of attorneys I consult with whenever I have questions about MA employment laws. We have worked together on a few employment cases, and I have been impressed with his commitment to being a zealous advocate for his client’s positions. He advocates for his clients even when other lawyers would have compromised or given up. His dedication to his client’s cause is unparalleled. For example, in one case, I remember him showing up and vigorously advocating for his client’s position at a mediation conference notwithstanding the fact that he was so ill that most people in his position would have stayed in bed and rescheduled the mediation. He is also one of the most ethical lawyers with whom I have co-counseled.
