Civil Service


We represent municipalities before the Massachusetts Civil Service Commission in a wide range of cases, including employee disciplinary matters.


We also provide practical advice to municipalities regarding “best practices” for civil service appointments and promotions.  This expertise is particularly helpful to our many police and fire departments that are governed by civil service law.  Our hope is to assist in avoiding any “pitfalls” in these hiring processes in order to avoid costly litigation associated with bypass appeals.
