Andrew Gambaccini Selected To Write Employee-Side Commentary For The Massachusetts Civil Service Commission Reporter

In Massachusetts, a significant number of public employees, including many police officers, are civil service employees and see their employment governed by the Commonwealth’s civil service laws and regulations.  The Massachusetts Civil Service Commission is the agency that processes and decides appeals of various types involving civil service employees, including disciplinary actions, bypass decisions, job classification disputes and other issues related to the civil service laws and regulations.

The Massachusetts Civil Service Commission Reporter is an important resource that publishes regularly the official decisions issued by the Civil Service Commission.  In addition to publishing the Commission’s decisions, the Reporter also features exclusive commentary from noted and experienced civil service attorneys.  These expert commentaries analyze the decisions of the Commission and provide readers with useful insight from the selected attorneys, who represent the sides of management and employees in disputes before the Commission.  Beginning in 2018, RJA Attorney Andrew Gambaccini will be writing the employee-side commentaries for the Reporter.

Personal Injury Claims in Massachusetts – What You Need To Know

Personal injury means an injury to your body, mind or emotions, and it covers all types of injuries involving head injuries, slip and fall accidents, car or construction accidents, as well as medical malpractice. In Massachusetts, if you have suffered an injury that you believe was due to someone else’s medical negligence, then you can seek compensation, even if you were partly responsible for the accident.

Therefore, it is highly recommended that anyone suffering due to any mishap, accident or medical injury contact a personal injury & medical malpractice attorney for advice and guidance through complicated personal injury laws.

Michael J. Akerson named a “Lawyer of the Year”

Attorney Michael J. Akerson has been selected by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly, the leading legal periodical in the state, as a “Lawyer of the Year” for 2011.  The prestigious award follows Attorney Akerson’s successful defense of a Lynn police officer who was terminated by the City based upon allegations of excessive force and improper conduct.  Appealing the termination through arbitration, Attorney Akerson secured an award that ordered the officer’s return to work.  When the City appealed that decision, Attorney Akerson represented the officer before the Superior Court, the Appeals Court, the Supreme Judicial Court and, ultimately, the United States Supreme Court.  The Supreme Judicial Court decision, City of Lynn v. Thompson, 435 Mass. 54 (2011), stands as one of the leading cases in Massachusetts on the authority of arbitrators and the binding nature of their factual findings.  After years of litigation, the officer’s return to work was confirmed through the courts and the City was required to compensate the officer in an enormous way for his back pay and other lost benefits.
