    Matt Fogelman negotiated a severance agreement with my former employer. I found Matt extremely professional, knowledgeable and ethical. I was very impressed by his thoroughness and responsiveness--Matt was always willing to answer my questions and provide explanations. He followed through persistently and conscientiously and was able to resolve any issues quickly. In short, I would highly recommend Matt Fogelman and his law firm.

    • I recommend Matthew Fogelman.
    • I hired Matthew 1-3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Personal Injury matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Matt Fogelman was our first experience with a personal injury lawyer, and we were unsure of the steps involved. In our first meeting he listened carefully and sympathetically and clearly explained the process to us, making it an easy decision to have him represent us in a case involving an injury due to poorly lit stairs. He was regularly in contact with us to discuss the progress of the case, and when the insurance company originally refused to negotiate a settlement, he kept after them and offered us excellent advice to hire a lighting expert to improve our chances of winning a settlement. When the insurance company then signaled a willingness to settle, he was able to negotiate a much higher settlement thanks to the evidence presented by that expert. He also managed to accomplish this in much less time than typical personal injury cases require. We have highly recommended him to our friends.

    • I recommend Matthew Fogelman.
    • I hired Matthew 6-12 months ago.
    • Matthew handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I worked as an independent contractor and made a significant sale that the business owner would not pay me for. He kept delaying and delaying.
    Because his company was located in Massachusetts (and I am in NYC), I had to search online for a Massachusetts based attorney.
    I found Matt and several other attorneys and had initial phone calls with each of them.
    It was immediately clear that Matt knew what he was talking about.
    He provided great counsel and strategy.
    Ultimately I got paid.
    He's a mensch, too.

    My husband and I were clients of Attorney Fogelman's. His handling of our case was more than professioanal and his understanding of the law impeccable. The outcome of our jury trial was better then we could have ever imagined. In looking for an attorney you look for someone who will listen, have compassion, and fight as if it were his own fight. That is what Attorney Fogleman did for us.

    • I hired Matthew 1-3 years ago.
    • Matthew handled my Employment / Labor matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    It would be hard to imagine better counsel. While most attorneys I have dealt with required near constant prodding, Matt led my case consistently and with an appropriate measure of aggression. In the closing chapters of my case he demonstrated exceptional negotiating skills and a relaxed demeanor that made the process much easier to pass through. Highest marks in all categories. This is an attorney deserving of his awards and accolades.

    After moving to Massachusetts with my family for a job as an advanced practice nurse, my new boss began to bully me and play mind games with me from day 1. I was forced to resign due to "over-hiring". I then contacted Matthew Fogelman who was very upfront about employment regulation in MA. As an "at-will" employee, my rights were limited. However, he helped me to obtain a settlement that would help me to support my family for the short interim until I was able to start another job. He was compassionate and honest and a really tough time.

    Matthew was extremely helpful right from the start and helped me to understand the case that I had and what the next steps and likely outcomes would be. I was lucky in that Matthew had experience not only in cases like mine but actually with the exact defendant which was helpful and reassuring. Matthew was very professional and respectful of even the most delicate aspects of my case and I always felt like we were a team. As for the results of my case, I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Matthew is an experienced attorney who will go out of his way for his clients.
