My experience with Maura and her colleagues, was remarkable from start to finish. They were exceptionally wise and knowledgeable about my situation, offering their expert advice regarding my options and best approaches. They negotiated what I felt was an exceptionally fair settlement that was far more generous than my expectations. I was particularly impressed with how responsive Maura and her team were to my phone calls and emails--I honestly felt as though I were their most important client. Maura also went above and beyond the legal work, providing me with recommendations for additional outplacement counseling and services. And perhaps, most importantly, every single person at the firm is a delight to work with. I cannot recommend Maura and her team highly enough.

Excellent, Honest and Friendly
I reached out to the Law Offices of Maura Anne Greene when I was in over my head and had no where to turn. I didn't know who I could trust. From the moment I sent my email on a weekend asking for help, they answered me the very same day and scheduled a call with me the next business day. From that first phone call, I knew I was in good hands and a huge weight was lifted off of my shoulders. It was a relief to know that I had someone who believed me. During the entire process, they were able to prep me before every meeting with my company, give me sound solid counsel and were on my side every step of the way. They moved through my case as swiftly as they could and I trusted them completely. I could not have been happier with the end result!

Severance Agreement Review & Negotiation
I found myself in an uncharted territory when faced with a difficult separation from a remote employer recently. The emotional aspect (shock and sadness that a solid career had been callously interrupted) was challenging enough, but the legal aspect was simply overwhelming – I was asked to sign a several-page long severance agreement under a tight timeline. Laden with legal jargons, the document was confusing, and I felt pressured. The Maura Greene Law Group come through favorably via online searches. It’s easy to make an initial appointment online and I spoke with Rob, the firm’s Practice Assistant, on my need to get the agreement reviewed. From there and very soon after, I was engaged in an open conversation with Maura on the specifics. She listened attentively, asked strategic questions that fully gathered the background, and suggested a path forward. I was very grateful for her willingness to take on the case, because it turned out to be not as straight forward as just getting a document reviewed. She believed that the company’s position was flawed and we were in a strong position to negotiate for better terms. I appreciated her steadfast support which truly helped me gain hopes to get through an extremely difficult period. Maura was very upfront about the costs and as the legal support commenced, I was given weekly updates from an accounting perspective at the task and hourly level. The transparency level was most assuring! Along with Maura, the firm’s Attorney Darshana Indira was also working with me. She was my point of contact on the day-to-day matters. Just as it was with Maura, Darshana’s support felt assuring. We partnered up as a team. Every step of the way, Darshana would suggest certain actions forward and asked for my input. She was open to feedback, made herself available for questions, was ever so patient and consistently responsive. I felt part of the process and we respected each other’s views. A setting like this is important to me. Within several weeks, we were able to settle on an agreement which not only protected my interests, but financially represented a much fairer package. It cannot be stressed enough how much Maura and Darshana made an unfortunate turn of events turn into vindication when the company's wrongdoings started coming to light one by one to their executive leadership during this legal process. Before long, our action started to demonstrate its greater value as catalyst for change as the company made a few major updates – which had seemed unavailable previously – to improve its working conditions and HR practices! For anyone looking for legal guidance on employment issues, I’d highly recommend Maura’s team. Even for a legal novice like me, their expertise had made it manageable to go through the process and attain a level of closure that now surpasses my initial hopes. As a grateful client, I believe you too will experience the personalized approach mentioned above with authenticity and transparency.

Great help in a tough situation
Maura provided an initial consult and a follow up consult on an employment case that involved complexity beyond just her legal vertical. She was able to review a critical employment document that with her help I was able to assess properly. This work helped save me money and provide essential job security during a transitionary period in my company. In addition she updated me on key information regarding Massachusetts employment law that covered multiple contracts and full time jobs I was working and researching. She was also able to refer me to a specialist to handle some of the more complex non employment matters related to my case. Highly recommended.

Very helpful
I used the MGL firm to negotiate my separation from my employer. My experience with this firm was excellent from start to finish. After my initial consultation with Maura, I worked with Darshana throughout the process. She was very professional, responded quickly to my emails and phone calls, and took time to address my concerns. I would highly recommend the Maura Greene Law firm.

Best decision I've made
Upon receiving an unexpected notice of severance I contacted Maura Greene Law. It was the best decision I've made relative to employment issues - ever. I strongly recommend Maura and Darshana for consultation and representation in employment issues. The package Darshana negotiated for my separation far exceeded expectations. It was such a stressful time, particularly during COVID. Darshana was exceptional - she listened, provided sound guidance, and advocated for my interests. I will be consulting with Maura Greene Law and Darshana in future employment negotiations.

Exceptional service
Maura Greene and her team were excellent. I worked with Josh Robbins who was a professional in assisting me with the service I’ve obtained. He was knowledgeable and resourceful. The service and counsel received by this law firm meet my needs and left me with a sound mind. Their forms of communication was well organized in competent ways. Josh was attentive, responsive, professional and the firm worked in a timely manner to get things done. The team made me feel nothing less than important. I would highly recommend this firm.

Great help when needed the most
I called a few different firms specializing in Employment Law after being offered a severance package. I had a lot of questions and I wanted to make sure someone was looking after my interests. Maura's office was the only one to call me back the same day and I spoke to her directly the next day. She took her time answering and asking me questions and at the end told me what her opinion was of my situation. I decided to move forward with her firm and I worked directly with Darshana, one of the lawyers on her team. Darshana was great to work with. She was attentive, patient and took the time to explain everything she was doing on my behalf. In the end, she was able to negotiate a better severance than what I was offered. I highly recommend Maura Greene and her firm.
