ABOUT GUSHUE LAW

Since 1986, Gushue Law has provided aggressive and experienced services to individuals and businesses in non-criminal legal matters.  Where necessary, and when out-of-court resolution is not feasible, we pursue civil litigation, including jury trials, arbitrations, mediations and administrative agency hearings.  

 

Principal practice areas include environmental law - wetlands, waterways, hazardous waste, solid waste, air & water quality; real estate - zoning, permitting, and land use & development; property rights - easements, access ways, beach & waterfront access rights, common area  rights, property damage insurance claims; accident, personal injury & wrongful death claims; medical malpractice claims; business and corporate matters; employment law - Wage Act and wrongful termination; unfair or deceptive business & insurance practices; and consumer protection claims.

 

Even if your case doesn't seem to fit a certain category, we can assist you in finding an attorney or technical expert with the particular skills that your case requires. In the cases that we do accept, we can call on a network of technical and medical experts and specialized attorneys as needed to provide research, opinions and assistance.

 

Gushue Law represents clients in various counties and courts - Massachusetts District, Superior, Housing, Probate and Land Courts; the Massachusetts Appeals Court and the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court; and the U.S. District Court-Massachusetts.  We also routinely represent clients before local, state and federal agencies, boards, commissions, and authorities, such as Planning, Health and Zoning Appeal Boards, Conservation Commissions, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) Unit, and numerous others.

 

We return phone calls within one business day, and we provide honest assessments  of cases, whether good or bad, and we perform all work with the highest level of care and attention to detail.
