I assist clients in the areas of employment law, criminal defense, and student rights.

Practice Focus

I joined Zalkind as an associate following a fellowship at a legal aid organization in Boston. In my fellowship, I launched a clemency initiative focused on representing incarcerated Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and LGBTQ+ people. I collaborated with community-based organizations to revitalize clemency in Massachusetts. I also assisted clients in criminal record sealing and expungement cases.

Prior to that, I worked as a legal intern at Zalkind and focused on employment law issues including individual rights in the context of discrimination and harassment, and wrongful termination in violation of public policy.

While in law school, I completed three other internships where I researched gender identity and expression protections under Title VII, provided litigation support in the area of consumer protection and predatory home loan practices, and advocated for claimants applying for unemployment insurance.

Prior Experience

Before law school, I worked at a middle school in East Boston for a nonprofit organization designed to build academic motivation through a combination of language arts and tennis activities.

Why I Became a Lawyer

I became a lawyer to build a world grounded in the redress of systemic harms and redistribution of power to generate sustainable change. I believe that high quality representation is a critical tool to combat harms people experience in the criminal legal system, at work, and at school. Through compassionate and strategic advocacy, I work to assist my clients in obtaining positive resolutions for their legal problems.

Client Reviews
I hired Mr. Duncan to deal with a very sensitive issue that my daughter had. Since the first contact, I had a very good impression of him. He transmitted confidence and appeared to know exactly what to do. I called and emailed him many times, he was polite and comprehensible with the anxiety of a father and appeared to know every step to solve the case. I strongly recommend Mr. Duncan. Flavio Lajoia

I contacted Zalkind Duncan & Bernstein to assist with a Title IX case. From our initial conversation, Naomi Shatz had a strong understanding of Title IX policies and conducted each step of the process with professionalism, honesty and a responsiveness that did not disappoint. Ms. Shatz displayed confidence and just as important, compassion when needed. Client
I worked with Emma Quinn-Judge and Monica Shah. And from my first contact on the phone, on to my first meeting in their office and during the trial, I found them and the firm's entire team to be a group of consummate legal professionals who are very knowledgeable, patient, dedicated, fair, honest and caring...

I am forever grateful to all the staff at this firm, but in particular, Ms. Shah, Mr. Zalkind and Mr. Silverglate. They represented my son who was being sought for extradition to Scotland. The case took years to fight, covering new legal ground, setting precedence. But each one of these legal eagles went above and beyond the duty of office... Suzanne D.
