Unemployment Lawyers Springfield MA

Unemployment lawyers serving Springfield MA

Dealing with the Massachusetts Department of Unemployment Assistance (DUA)  can be frustrating for people who live or worked in Springfield and surrounding areas. People in Central Massachusetts often get stuck because they missed a deadline, or answered one question wrong on a DUA form, and they don’t know what to do next. Calling DUA’s customer service line can involve very long hold times, and if you do get through to a staff person, the information provided can be unhelpful or even inaccurate. There are multiple levels of appeal, and it can be daunting to prepare for and attend an unemployment hearing if you do not know what to expect. Sometimes people face large “overpayments” of unemployment benefits and don’t understand their options.

At the Workplace Justice Law Group, we help people dealing with the DUA every day, whether you live or work in Springfield, Central Massachusetts, or anywhere else in the Commonwealth. 

Both of our attorneys worked for the DUA before establishing this law firm, and we have many years of experience helping people get over the obstacles preventing them from getting – and keeping – their unemployment benefits. We can help people from Springfield, and people who worked in or around Springfield, figure out their next steps with a strategy session/consultation by phone or video. It is better to consult with us early in the process rather than later, because we can help you avoid frustrating delays and common mistakes. 

Whether you need to file an unemployment claim for the first time, appeal a Disqualification, prepare for an unemployment appeals hearing, or just need some questions answered, contact us.
