Starting January 1st, 2013, Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court requires lawyers in MA must have fee agreement in writing upon taking a case, the scope of the representation and basis of the fee and expenses must be communicated to the client in writing.
Failure to do so, a lawyer could get in to trouble.
