Civil Service Appeals – Appointments, Promotions, and Disciplinary Matters

As Boston civil service appeals lawyers, we represent public safety workers in appeals before the Civil Service Commission, and serve clients throughout Massachusetts. We work closely with police officers and firefighters concerning appointment and promotion decisions as well as disciplinary matters. This experience includes individual Civil Service appeals as well as a complex federal trial challenging the police examination procedures.

Civil Service Commission Reviews

Under Massachusetts General Law Chapter 31, the Civil Service Commission reviews decisions by cities and towns concerning hiring, promotion, and disciplinary matters. The most common cases are bypass appeals and challenges to suspensions and discharges. We have the experience and dedication necessary to help public safety workers successfully challenge personnel decisions that are based on unfair or illegal reasons.
