Biography

Matthew Famiglietti opened his first law office in 1994 because he believes strongly that one individual can make a difference. Having a disability, and living with that disability every day, gives him a unique insight into issues that affect people with disabilities. He has a deep commitment to providing quality legal services to others with disabilities. Of course, he brings that same commitment to those without disabilities as well. Matthew handles cases ranging from Disability Law, the Americans with Disabilities Act, Employment Law, Asylum Law, to Special Education Law. All of these areas have one thing in common – helping those who are being discriminated against through no fault of their own.You will never know if you have a valid case unless you have consulted with an experienced attorney.

Matthew cares about what is best for you, not best for him; and he will help you find justice through the best available avenue.

Legal Answers
Q. My boss wasn’t paying me minimum wage and is making me pay for mistakes and calling me homophobic Slurs
A: First of all, if you believe that you are being retaliated against and threatened because you may file a compliant you need to consult with a qualified employment discrimination attorney licensed in the District of Columbia. You also need to clarify the alleged homophobic slurs made by your employer. If wages and tips are being withheld from you because of discrimination based on gender ie homophobia, you also need to discuss these slurs with the attorney during your consultation. I provide consultations over the phone because of the pandemic. if you would like for my office to provide you a consultation over the phone, you may contact me at (202) 669-5880. If you would like a consultation please call my office to schedule a date and time for a phone consultation. Please note, there is a consultation fee.
Q. If an employer "requests" that you complete a dd3150, are you legally obligated to complete and submit that form?
A: You do not have to sign the form. However, by not signing the form you can expect to be treated as not having been fully vaccinated. The policy is not discriminatory on its face if it is equally applied to everyone regardless of sex, race, national origin, religion or disability. It does not seem, from what you say, that the policy is discriminatory in any fashion.
Q. What is the impact of Appellant's Representative's Notice of Withdrawal of Counsel on an ongoing case?
A: The judge will consider the Motion to Withdraw. He or she will consider the reasons for the Motion, then make a decision of the Motion. The attorney who made the Motion still represents, you until the Motion to Withdraw is granted and ordered by the judges.
