Client Reviews
Elisabeth Arnette-Nazanee Topian December 8, 2020
Matthew Famiglietti is an amazing advocate for his clients! Matthew Famiglietti was referred to me and I couldn't have been more pleased to have him working on my behalf! Not only did he represent me well and with tremendous knowledge of the law, as it applied to my case, he was able to bring a resolution. He kept me informed all the way through the process and guided and educated me along the way. He cared at a time that was very unsettling for me and he gave me comfort and confidence because he made sure I knew what was happening and what each step needed was. Matthew Famiglietta is one of the most professional attorneys I've had the pleasure with which to work. His demeanor exudes confidence and knowledge and, at no time, did I ever question whose side he was on and know that he was totally "in my corner."

Matt is an Excellent Attorney! He is the Best of the Best! Matt is an extraordinary attorney who goes above and beyond to help his clients. He helped my family with a very difficult disability case and did everything possible to make sure no stone was left unturned. He is extremely knowledgeable and dedicated. He fought for us and never gave up even though it was a hard case from the beginning. He is the most compassionate and understanding attorney who truly understands how important your case is to you. Matt is the best of the best and I highly recommend him and his team. We are forever grateful for all his hard work, and more importantly, very blessed to have had the opportunity for him to be our attorney. Thank you so much Matt for always believing and never giving up!

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
12 Questions Answered
Q. What law can I use for the Dist. of Columbia to be able to use religious exemption from the Covid vaccine for my child?
A: You would need to get medical documentation from your child's doctor stating the child has a disability that prevents him or her from receiving the covid shot safely. I am attaching the exemption: https://osse.dc.gov/release/osse-encourages-families-receive-required-immunizations. Good luck.
Q. Is it false imprisonment to hold an employee after hours?
A: The definition of false imprisonment is very strict. It is a term under criminal and tort (civil) law. Under tort law it is classified as an intentional tort. A person commits false imprisonment when he or she commits an act of restraint on another person, confining that person in a bounded area. Since the door was not locked in your case, and you were not restrained, you could have gone past the managers. Since you had a route of escape you were not in a bounded area, where you were locked in. I don't think your situation meets the definition of false imprisonment.
Q. Is there national imagination lawyer's guild, and why not publicly advertise to people around the world how 2
A: The American Immigration Lawyer’s (AILA.) is an organization of Attorneys who specializes in aiding individuals who have immigration problems including Naturalization, becoming an American citizen, as well as other immigration issues.
