Professional malpractice insurance is not required for attorneys who are licensed and practice in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. However, it is highly recommended to mitigate the cost of a malpractice insurance claim.

There are a number of places from which attorneys can acquire malpractice insurance. If you have an existing insurance policy, such as home, automobile, or life, you should check with your carrier to determine whether that company also provide professional malpractice insurance. Bundling policies can help reduce prices.
