About Me

In 2010, I opened up a Newton, Massachusetts branch office of my father's New York law firm; the newly-expanded firm is called Fogelman & Fogelman LLC.  I am a trial lawyer specializing in personal injury, employment, defamation, and alcoholic beverage licensing. I am involved in a number of class actions in the areas of security deposit violations, the Tips statute, and the Wage Act.
