No, is that the first thing I should do?
Thank you for the information.
Yes, it is the first thing you should do. You should first find out if the Attorney has any record of public discipline by checking with the Board of Overseers web site. Click on the link below to check the Attorney’s status: http://massbbo.org/bbolookup.php
Once you do that, you should then check the Attorney's standing in Martindale-Hubbell:

Thank you, XXXXX XXXXX get in Martindale is Name, and year of school he graduated from. That's not much information. Perhaps I am not using the site correctly. Please advise. Response: The information is correct. If the Attorney does not subscribe to Maritndale's service, you would only get the basic information, which is what you got. Did you check the Board of Bar Overseers' web site? That is the most important web site to determine if the Attorney is even in good standing to practice law. http://massbbo.org/bbolookup.php You may also check http://www.justia.com and http://www.findlaw.com
Yes, I have looked at the Board of Overseers website. Will now look at the other you suggest.
