Episode Notes

The Massachusetts Rules for Professional Conduct were officially and extensively revised for the first time since 1998 on July 1st, 2015. Many of these changes were heavily influenced by the 2013 revision to the American Bar Association’s Model Rules of Professional Conduct, due to a value recognized by lawyers and courts in having nationwide uniformity. Massachusetts lawyers, pay attention for the changes, what they mean, and practical applications to take in order to stay in compliance with the revised rules.

Jared Correia and Heidi Alexander, advisors at Mass. LOMAP and hosts of The Legal Toolkit, interview Connie Vecchione and James Bolan, experts on legal ethics in Massachusetts, about specific rules Massachusetts lawyers should review to ensure they don’t face malpractice and disciplinary issues. Tune in for specific advice that is easy to implement with regard to technological competence, online advertising, trust accounting, and more.
