Investigations

​Thorough and fair investigations are at the heart of what DP Law is all about. Accountability for sexual misconduct and discrimination is critical to a just society. At DP Law, we have investigated hundreds of sexual misconduct and discrimination matters, and we have deep knowledge of the dynamics of sexual assault and domestic violence. But we also know that holding someone accountable unfairly does not further the cause of justice. Each case must be evaluated carefully on its own merits and without bias. Our experience both on the trial and appellate levels allows us to analyze the evidence incisively and explain our conclusions in clear, detailed reports that exceed federal and state standards.

Training, Policies & Advice

​Doctors have always known it, and the best lawyers know it too: prevention is the best defense. At DP Law, the depth and breadth of our legal experience as well as our experience teaching at the college and graduate level results in lively, interactive, practical trainings about investigating and responding to complaints of sexual misconduct, sexual harassment and discrimination with examples that encourage open discussion and enable participants to fully understand and appreciate the complex issues involved and to act on sexual misconduct and discrimination complaints with confidence.

Litigation

The best lawyers leave clients feeling relieved, confident that they’re in good hands. At DP Law, our extensive litigation experience in courts and agencies throughout Massachusetts in litigation of all kinds, including employment discrimination, premises liability, personal injury, and criminal defense,​ give us the skills to meet any courtroom challenge. But we also know that solving legal problems is about more than just winning in the courtroom because legal problems have repercussions far beyond the courtroom. At DP Law, we listen to your goals and priorities to devise a comprehensive strategy to achieve the immediate goals of litigation within the broader context of other important needs, so you know you’re not just in good hands, but excellent ones.
