Attorneys at times require the assistance of a uniquely qualified independent consultant and attorney to provide a broad range of professional services in civil rights and discrimination matters.
For example, an independent investigation of a discrimination or retaliation claim may promote early dispute resolution, reduce costs, and help minimize liability risks. Where personal tensions or distrust exists, or when key factual disputes interfere with or impede conflict resolution, litigation, or settlement negotiations, you may decide an independent investigation is warranted. With my extensive investigative experience in civil rights and discrimination matters as former Assistant Attorney General and Civil Rights Division Chief in the Massachusetts Office of Attorney General, I can provide you and your clients with the high-quality investigative services they need and deserve.
Other times, you or your client may require an independent monitor to promote implementation of and compliance with court-ordered injunctive relief, consent decrees, settlement agreements, or other case-related dispositions. My extensive government enforcement experience enables me to provide prudent and practical independent monitoring services that reduce attorney time and clients’ costs, while helping prevent violations and ensuring prompt redress.
I also offer practical, highly skilled litigation consulting, legal assistance, and co-counseling to help attorneys and their clients successfully pursue or defend civil rights and discrimination cases in administrative agencies and in state and federal courts.
I look forward to working together with you in civil rights and discrimination matters.
