Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys
Incorporated in 1975, the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys (MATA) is an organization primarily for lawyers in Massachusetts that spend the majority of their careers doing civil litigation. However, regular membership is open to all lawyers that are dedicated to promoting the concept of a fair trial. Other legal employees, including secretaries and paralegals, may join as non-voting members so long as they work for or are sponsored by a regular member of the association.
LegalMatch operates a valuable online service that connect Massachusetts residents with highly qualified local attorneys. An entirely free service, LegalMatch allows potential clients to post cases online for review by attorneys in the LegalMatch system. Prior to selecting an attorney, potential clients are able to review detailed attorney profiles and past client reviews.
There are several benefits provided by the Massachusetts Academy of Trial Attorneys for its members. MATA’s website contains several resources to improve its members' professional lives, such as an expert witness deposition bank and online continuing legal education seminars. Members are also given several opportunities to interact and network with one another, including a mentoring program and several social and networking events throughout the year.
