Susan Fentin Recognized Among Top Women of Law
SPRINGFIELD — Skoler, Abbott & Presser, P.C., a labor- and employment-law firm serving employers in the Greater Springfield area, announced that attorney Susan Fentin will be an honoree at the annual Top Women of Law event presented by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. The event, recognizing the top 50 female legal professionals in Massachusetts, will be held Wednesday, Oct. 28 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the Marriott Copley Place Hotel in Boston.
The Top Women of Law program celebrates the outstanding achievements made by exceptional women in the legal profession. The awards highlight 50 women who are pioneers, educators, trailblazers, and role models. Fentin is the only honoree from the Pioneer Valley.
Fentin joined Skoler, Abbott & Presser in 1999 and has been a partner at the firm since 2004. Before beginning her law career she had a career in business and owned and operated her own marketing and advertising company. The experience gave her insight into the employment problems faced by many business owners. Today, she specializes in employment-law issues, counseling employers on handling difficult employee situations and avoiding litigation, defending employers against charges of discrimination under state and federal law, and employment litigation in state and federal court.
Her interest in helping employers is evident in her editorship of the Massachusetts Employment Law Letter and her involvement with the Advanced Employment Issues Symposium in Las Vegas. Her passion for employment law has also led her to Cambridge, Mass., where she has held master classes on behalf of M. Lee Smith Publishers on the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Fair Labor Standards Act, and the Family and Medical Leave Act.
