Litigation


For over thirty years, the lawyers at Reardon Law Office LLC (formerly Hassan & Reardon P.C.) have advocate for their clients during the litigation process. Our attorneys have represented clients ranging from the largest institutions in New England to individual employees. The litigation process can be overwhelming and complex. Our firm has both the knowledge and experience to guide a client to their best possible outcome. 

Appeals

The lawyers at Reardon Law Office LLC boast success with appeals for over thirty years.  Our firm has not only handled appeals once we are retained at that level but also have managed success in preparing arguments at trial which build a solid foundation for success at the appellate level.


The importance of preserving appellate rights at trial cannot be overstated.  Our attorneys diligently prepare so that important legal issues are properly raised and recorded at trial and that preparation begins at the onset of the Client's legal matter.  A strong focus on potential appellate issues often times can lead to favorable settlements or summary judgments before the case ever gets to trial.  Our lawyers are competent at examining all legal issues and relevant facts of case to put together not only the best legal arguments in the discovery and trial phases, but to prepare for the appellate level. 


Employment Litigation

Employment litigation has exploded during the last three decades.  Our attorneys have successfully represented numerous clients in trials before administrative agencies and juries in a cost effective and strategic manner.  We have also successfully prosecuted appeals that have resulted in opinions in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts which have established important legal precedents regarding both the legal standards to be applied to the facts of the case as well as the evidentiary rules to be followed.    These cases have involved allegations of race, handicap, sex and sexual orientation discrimination, to name a few.  We apply our experience when strategically representing our clients.  Employment litigation can be time consuming and expensive if not properly managed and resolved.  Employment litigation can often be avoided by the implementation of workplace policies and workforce training about the application of such policies.  Our attorneys will help you avoid employment disputes by effective training and confront such issues when they arise.
