Tough, Experienced and Skilled

Attorneys Barry Fagan and Jennifer McManus represent employees who have been discriminated against, harassed, terminated or otherwise injured by their employers. It is difficult to obtain a successful result in these cases unless you have an experienced advocate on your side. If you have been illegally terminated from your job, were harassed, or were improperly compensated for your work, your employer will not simply acknowledge that it has acted illegally. You need a lawyer who will uncover evidence and establish your employer's illegal actions.

At Fagan McManus, P.C., we are often asked whether we take on the big companies. The short answer is yes. Our lawyers routinely reach successful results against Fortune 500 companies in negotiations and litigation. We know exactly what is in store when going up against giant corporations and big businesses. Our battle-tested lawyers have overcome obstacles and achieved results for our clients time and time again.
