Attorney Matthew Fabisch Again Recognized as "Rising Star" by New England SuperLawyers Magazine and Rhode Island Monthly
Fabisch Law, L.L.C. is proud to announce that for the second year in a row, Managing Attorney Matthew Fabisch has been selected by New England Super Lawyers Magazine and Rhode Island Monthly as a Super Lawyers Rising Star.
The Law Offices of Fabisch Law, L.L.C. are commemorating World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD). This year’s theme is One person. Once action. One Nation. United against elder abuse.
Did you know that every day 10,000 people turn 65 in the US alone? That trend is going to continue for nearly the next 20 years. Our demographics are shifting, and we will soon have more elder people in the US than ever before. At the same time that the population is growing, we know that a startling number of elders face abusive conditions. Every year an estimated 5 million, or 1 in 10, older Americans are victims of elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation. And that’s only part of the picture: Experts believe that for every case of elder abuse or neglect reported, as many as 23.5 cases go unreported.
WEAAD serves as a call-to-action for individuals, organizations, and communities to raise awareness about abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elders. World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) was founded in an effort to unite communities around the world in raising awareness about elder abuse. Fabisch Law L.L.C. Managing Attorney Matthew Fabisch noted “for too long, the exploitation of elders by those entrusted with their care, such as nursing and assisted living facilities, was swept under the rug. We at Fabisch Law, L.L.C. are proud to stand against elder abuse and draw attention to the plight of too many of our seniors and older citizens throughout Rhode Island and Massachusetts.”

Fabisch Law, L.L.C. Managing Attorney, who also serves as the President and General Counsel for Rhode Island's Stephen Hopkins Center for Civil Rights, was quoted in this week's Providence Phoenix commenting on the historical origins of the arguments raised in the briefing of Rhode Island Governor Chafee's arguments before the United States First Circuit Court of Appeals in the Pleau Murder/Extradition case. The Hopkins Center had previously submitted a brief in the case arguing that the Governor's position should prevail, but because the Federal Government did not have the power to prosecute the case, not, as the Governor had argued, because of a historical "right to refuse" to extradite. A full copy of the Phoenix article is available Here.

Attorney Fabisch argues sex and race discrimination case against the Rhode Island Attorney General's Office, wins client's right to proceed.
Fabisch Law client Dawn Huntley, a Rhode Island Attorney who had previously spent time as a prosecutor in the attorney generals office, has been allowed to proceed with her racial and sexual discrimination case against the Rhode Island Attorney General's Office after a ruling by the Presiding Justice of the Rhode Island Superior Court. The Attorney General's office had sought to have the case dismissed on technical grounds because the plaintiff's old attorney had initially filed an action in the United States District Court but then failed to follow up on the matter which was ultimately dismissed. Huntley then sought out attorneys Matthew Fabisch and Nicholas Gelfuso to bring an action in the state courts. When the Attorney General's office then sought to dismiss the case based on the earlier federal court action, Attorney Fabisch argued that the earlier case was not an adjudication on the merits and that Huntley was entitled to her day in court. In November, the Court issued an opinion holding that Huntley's case could move forward. Full text of the court's opinion is available here.
