Meet Attorney Irene Bassock

Prior to founding Empower Legal Group, Irene Bassock spent over two decades on the “other side” of employment law, representing employers. With that inside knowledge of how companies think, Irene offers unique perspectives to professionals who need legal help with difficult situations at work or who are transitioning from one employer to the next. She loves facing novel issues in the employment arena and crafting workable solutions for our clients.

Irene is a 1995 graduate of Boston University School of Law and is admitted to the bar in Connecticut and Massachusetts. She has deep connections with other professionals who can assist employees in transition, including career counselors, recruiters, coaches and other resources. We don’t just handle your legal matter; we’re focused on helping you navigate every aspect of your career transition.
