It seems like more and more these days, you read about lawyers being suspended or disbarred, for unethical and/or criminal activity. Occasionally, these very lawyers are allowed to resume their practice of law at a later time. It is the client’s right to know a lawyer’s ethical or criminal past record. It is important to ask your personal injury lawyer, verbally or better yet in-writing, if they have ever been suspended or disbarred for unethical behavior or criminal activity so that you can make an informed decision as to whether they feel comfortable going forward with this lawyer or law firm. This information can also be looked up on the massbbo.org website. Scroll down to “Look Up An Attorney”, type in the first and last name of the attorney, then click the particular attorney that aligns exactly with the attorney’s full name, law firm name and address. Click that attorney’s name, then on the right of the page, click the tab “Go To Disciplinary Decisions”.
