Attorney Thomas Horgan is a member of the Massachusetts Bar and is a graduate of both Western New England University School of Business and Massachusetts School of Law.  While attending Massachusetts School of Law, Tom was twice the recipient of the "Cali Excellence for the Future Award". 

Tom began his career working for the Office of Labor and Workforce Development where his efforts were focused on tracking and promoting the passage of legislation and policies affecting the Labor and Workforce Development in the State and Federal arenas. 

In September of 2012, Tom joined the Law Office of Michael F. Hanley as an Associate Attorney and was quickly given the responsibility of managing many of Attorney Hanley’s important accounts.  Since 2012, Tom has focused on the rights of employees and Union-side labor and employment law.  Attorney Horgan has appeared before the Massachusetts Department of Labor Relations; the National Labor Relations Board in Massachusetts and Connecticut; the Vermont Labor Relations Board; as well as in District and Federal Courts.  He has handled many high-profile cases on behalf of his members and has been very successful at arbitration as well as through mediation and litigation.

When Attorney Michael Hanley passed away in 2013, Attorney Horgan took over the practice but chose to keep the Hanley name to honor his great friend and mentor.  Hanley Law Offices now represents thousands of public sector law enforcement union members belonging to the New England Police Benevolent Association (NEPBA), the largest law enforcement union in New England.  In addition, Tom represents many other public sector employees who are members of the International Union of Public Employees (IUPE).

Attorney Horgan also represents hundreds of private sector employees belonging to independent unions.  Those groups include the Bentley University Public Safety Association; Holy Cross Public Safety Association; Wentworth Institute of Technology Police Union; University of Massachusetts Memorial Hospital Public Safety Union; Quinnipiac University Public Safety Officers Association; and the Yale University Security Officers Association.  Tom handles collective bargaining, disciplinary matters, and all employment related matters that may arise for his private sector clients.
