Melanie L. Glickson founded Glickson Law Firm, LLC after over a decade of practicing labor and employment law and litigation in large Boston-area firms and as an Assistant United States Attorney defending government agencies against employment claims and various torts. Melanie's work in the big firm setting offered her high-quality training and exposure to complex cases on a national level. Litigating cases on behalf of the federal government gave her a wealth of courtroom experience and a keen appreciation for the costs and benefits of litigation.
Armed with this background, Melanie wanted to create a boutique employment law firm in which she could put her training to use for the benefit of both employers and employees, by litigating cases when appropriate and helping clients avoid costly litigation where possible. As the head of her own firm, Melanie enjoys the flexibility of choosing to work with those clients to whom she is able to offer the most help, and the ability to work efficiently to conserve client resources.
Glickson Law Firm, LLC represents both employees and private employers. The firm maintains a caseload that allows Melanie to give the utmost attention to every file, and to be responsive to each client's questions and needs. Melanie is highly selective about the clients that the firm takes on, accepting only those cases for which she feels she can offer the best assistance.
For those clients anticipating litigation, Melanie performs a careful, evidence-based analysis of the case, creating a litigation strategy designed to achieve maximum results while keeping litigation costs under control. Melanie helps clients understand exactly what is at risk, what resources should be expended, and in what way. Guided by Melanie's analysis and advice, clients can make thoughtful decisions about how to proceed with litigation, rather than simply responding to events.
Although Melanie is an accomplished litigator, a great deal of her practice entails helping employers and employees understand their rights and obligations to explore the possibility of avoiding costly litigation. Often, Melanie is able to resolve a matter before litigation begins through a series of communications between Melanie and the lawyer on the other side.
Moreover, many lawsuits arise from unclear or incomplete communication. In order to safeguard client interests, Melanie prepares employment-related documents with an eye toward avoiding litigation down the road. Whether it's a non-compete, offer letter, consulting agreement, employment agreement, severance agreement, termination letter, settlement agreement, or a handbook, all documents are prepared and reviewed with painstaking attention to detail. Melanie strives to create comprehensive, unambiguous documents for each client so that communication is clear and meanings are unambiguous.
Whether litigating on behalf of clients, or helping clients to avoid litigation, Melanie Glickson's focus is on providing the highest quality work product and attentive service.
