Workers' Compensation Attorney

An injury sustained on the job can affect all aspects of your life and family.  Under Massachusetts law, the workers’ compensation system guarantees specific benefits to employees hurt while engaged in their job duties.  These benefits include weekly compensation checks of up to 60% of the average weekly wage, coverage for medical costs related to the work-related injury, compensation for loss of function, compensation for scaring and/or disfigurement, and in some instances, an employee may qualify for vocational retraining though the Department of Industrial Accidents.

 

Oftentimes getting the benefits owed can be difficult.  Employers may deny claims or have benefits terminated prematurely, leaving the employee without pay or medical treatment.  Since 2007, Attorney George has successfully represented injured workers and their loved ones with workers’ compensation claims, securing the benefits they deserve.

 

Your fee is contingent on whether your case is won and benefits are obtained though the workers’ compensation system.  Please call  (508) 996-0636, or click the button below, to set up your free consultation.

 

Divorce Attorney

 

Massachusetts is a no-fault divorce state, which means you do not need to prove to the Court as to why you wish to divorce.  One of the most common reasons, however, is “irreconcilable differences.”  The marriage simply isn’t working due to differing interests, and it cannot be fixed. 

 

Regardless of the cause, the end of a marriage can be a very stressful, confusing and sad time.  In order to move forward, many issues must be addressed and how they are managed will determine which category of Divorce is pursued.

 

Divorce Attorney George will provide you with as much information as possible so you can make the best decision for your circumstances and family.  Please call (508) 996-0636, or click the button below, to schedule your free consultation.
