Areas of Practice

Areas of practice and services provided by Massachusetts based attorneys at Lawrence B. Morse & Associates, LLC:

Employment Law

Knowledge is power and we provide it! Many of today’s employees may not be aware of their legal rights. We provide business owners in Massachusetts with the advantages of having an attorney who has the perspective of handling both sides of employment issues. We help individuals with employment issues, such as  discrimination claims, severance and settlement agreements. We help businesses with similar issues, but encourage preventive law – employment best practices, such as needed discrimination policies, advising on terminations, employee handbooks with update provisions as the law changes. The costs of non-compliance with employment laws can be high.
