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. 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.
Q. Washington DC employer refuses employment verification.
A: It is highly unusual for a former employer not to give verification of employment of a former employee. Usually the verification is very general, for example Mr Smith worked for Company A from Jan 1 2020 to Jan 1 2021. You would need to contact a licensed attorney in DC for a more in depth consultation in terms of the facts of the situation. This format is not meant to take the place of a virtual consultation. Most attorneys are giving phone consultations due to the Covid pandemic.
Q. Does an "employee" in the code of federal regulations refer to active duty components (military, PHS, NOAA)?
A: Your question is not entirely clear, but a member of the military is a federal employee. Individuals who work for NOAA are federal employees as well. PHS helps aid federal agencies as the FDA and the CDC
