What is Involved in Impaneling a Jury?

During the jury empanelment stage of both civil and criminal trials, there are inevitably some prospective jurors who raise their hands when asked whether service would impose an extreme and unusual hardship. Generally, those jurors are excused. Other prospective juror may feel that there is a reason that they cannot be impartial and, in that Read More

How Has the Legal Profession Changed?

When I started practicing law in the 1980s, it is hard for me to fathom that many of the already practicing lawyers were just beginning to interact with women lawyers. Actually, that should not be a major surprise since some law schools didn’t accept women until the 1950s (Harvard) and others had so few women Read More

Is 93A Useful in an Accident Case?

Plaintiff lawyers often lament how the Supreme Judicial Court has authored opinions that restrict the rights of plaintiff litigants. But, in truth, there have been many instances where the court has been sensitive to the rights of victims. One such case is Rhodes v.

These trial lawyers must have felt that Read More

What is a Major Factor in a Personal Injury Settlement?

A recent Boston Globe article described a plaintiff in a significant lawsuit who was awarded $580,000 but netted virtually nothing after the deduction of fees, medical expenses and medical liens. Years ago, I blogged about a “lien” being not necessarily “lean”. There is no question but that liens can lead to very unfortunate results. Liens, Read More

Who’s to Say He or She is Sorry?

I have encountered several clients who apologize for suing. They make a special attempt to distinguish themselves from others who they see as greedy or “gaming” the system. Why is this so? Why has a stigma been attached to the idea that we should be able to vindicate our rights? On some level, these clients Read More
