Mass. lawyers terrified over landlord agents in Housing Court


Really.  See this article from Massachusetts Lawyer Weekly (Oct. 23, 2006).  As attorney David Florio told the Mass. High Court recently: “[T]he trial courts and the appellate courts could find themselves presiding over cases prosecuted by non-lawyer agents who are paralegals, maintenance men, office managers, real estate agents, collection agents, and even disbarred attorneys. No individual would be required, as a prerequisite to practice law, to be licensed, but only to be an agent, thereby undermining the practice of a law.”
