The following is a partial list of cases that Attorney Mangones resolved for Godbout Law clients in the year 2013:

  • Obtained a judgment against a public pharmaceutical company’s former CEO and VP of Research and Development.  After a five-day bench trial in the Worcester Superior Court, handled by Attorneys John Mangones and David Conti, the presiding Judge issued a finding that the defendants intentionally created a competitor company for the single purpose of taking business from our client and issued a judgment against the former officers for breach of fiduciary duty in excess of $500,000.
  • Settled a wage case brought against an employer which refused to pay commissions to its former salesman.  Attorney Mangones achieved a settlement within weeks of delivering a demand pursuant to G.L. c. 93A, §9, and G.L. c. 149, §148 consisting of the unpaid commissions and all of our client’s attorney’s fees.
  • Settled a construction defect case against a contractor for negligent construction of her home in New Hampshire.  Attorney Mangones represented the client in mediation before a former New Hampshire Superior Court Judge, where he persuasively argued that the contractor’s work on the house fell beneath the standard of care required for a member of the construction industry.
  • Obtained a summary judgment against a Massachusetts landlord on behalf of a residential tenant for violations of the Security Deposit Statute (G.L. c. 186, §15B).
  • Settled a personal injury action brought by a man who sustained moderate injuries when the MBTA bus that he was riding on was struck by a car.
