Donald F. Mason is one of the best labor/employment law lawyers I've come across. He and his partner, Bruce Shine, are my "go-to" guys whenever I have a client with labor law or employment problems. I have worked with both of them for over 30 years and always been not just "pleased" but "very pleased" with the results they obtain.
