Fearless & Effective

In the halls of government, at the bargaining table, and on picket lines at some of the most powerful organizations in New England and throughout the country, we fight shoulder to shoulder with our labor union clients to protect workers’ rights and secure fair compensation for all.

Why We Do This…

It was a sweltering summer in upstate New York and workers at the paper mill in Lyons Falls reached the breaking point. Exhausted by mandatory overtime shifts, often working 16 hours straight in 120-degree heat breathing the mill’s foul air, workers walked off the job in a wildcat strike.



Our Practice Areas

McDonald Lamond Canzoneri represents labor unions in all aspects of labor law within both the public and private sectors. MLC also represents employees in workers’ compensation, disability retirement, and other workplace injury matters, through our Of Counsel attorneys.

Crafting the Beer Summit

When the President of the United States and the Governor of Massachusetts jumped to outrageous conclusions, saying the arrest of Harvard University Professor Henry Louis Gates Jr. was yet another example of racist police action, MLC pushed back hard.

Friday Nights

Working his way through college, Jack Canzoneri took a job as a busboy at a Mexican restaurant in Buffalo. But soon Jack had questions. Why did the staff have to wait more than two weeks to get paid? Why didn’t they get a lunch break, even when working an eight-hour shift?

Boston Marathon Bombing

As a gun battle raged and pipe bombs exploded on the streets of Watertown, MLC attorney Alan McDonald was called to the Watertown police headquarters to assist officers returning from the pursuit and fight with the Boston Marathon bombers.
