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. I was terminated from my employer without any justification, they gave me a severance package but they want me to be
A: If you believe that you are being discriminated against on the basis of race, and treated differently from other employees in regard to severance payments, then you need to consult a licensed discrimination lawyer in the District of Columbia as soon as possible. Most attorneys are providing consultation either over the phone or through Zoom due to the pandemic. I wish you the best of luck.
Q. A coworker put his head on my shoulder. It was unwelcomed, uninvited physical contact. I told my boss. What do I do now?
A: You should consult with with a qualified employment discrimination attorney who specializes in Sexual harassment. Most attorneys are providing consultations over the phone or zoom due to COVID.
Q. retaliation case my supervisor had his employee to take a cellphon picture under my dress.what case law can I use
A: Is this a matter involving a DC employer? If so, I would be glad to give you a free 30 minute consultation tomorrow morning, August 16th at 10 am. Clearly, videotaping under your skirt could well constitute sexual harassment in the work place. Did you report this incident to HR? Or have you filed a complaint with the DC Human Rights Office which has jurisdiction over employers in DC? Or did you file a complaint with the EEOC? As far as case law goes, there is a US Supreme Court decision that defines the definition of sexual harassment under Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Burlington Industries, Inc. v. Ellerth, 524 U.S. 742 (1998). As I said before, if you would like a consultation, please feel free to call me at 202-669-5880 tomorrow morning at 10 am. Please confirm whether you will be calling me or not by the end of today. Matthew T. Famiglietti Attorney at Law
