Ken Margolin has practiced law in Massachusetts since 1973. Since the beginning of his career in legal services, he has sought justice for the common person wronged by government, business, or insurance interests. Now Ken will be using his talents to represent college students charged with serious breaches of their school's code of conduct.
Early in his career in an office providing legal services to poor and low-income individuals, Attorney Margolin represented people with a wide range of mental and physical disabilities. During that same period, he won the first case in Massachusetts establishing that non-profit corporations had the right to open group homes for adults with developmental disabilities in residential neighborhoods.
After leaving legal services for private practice, Attorney Margolin became a leader representing Massachusetts organizations operating programs for people with disabilities. His work on behalf of non-profit corporations have included ground-breaking court cases, as well as trouble-shooting, advice and counsel and representation before state and local administrative bodies.
Attorney Margolin also began representing people who had been injured because of medication and anesthesia errors and other medical malpractice, injured by callous or illegal corporate practices and by other forms of individual or corporate negligence. His efforts on behalf of injured plaintiffs include multiple million dollar plus recoveries in medical malpractice and general negligence cases. Attorney Margolin has represented personal injury clients in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Kansas.
His successful results include one of the largest verdicts in a medication overdose case in Massachusetts history.
Attorney Margolin has taught at the graduate level, has been extensively published on various legal topics, and is an accomplished public speaker. He will now use his skills and experience to help colleges students facing serious charges of violations of their school codes of conduct. College disciplinary board hearings are often stacked against the accused, held in an atmosphere of politically correct hysteria, and threaten the student's rights to fundamental fairness. Attorney Margolin pledges to do all that he can to obtain a fair hearing and just result for his college student clients.
Attorney Margolin prides himself on explaining the law clearly and simply to his clients, and involving them every step of the way - clients are never in the dark about their case. Obtaining justice for his clients, has been Ken Margolin's life's work.
