REQUEST TO ADD ATTORNEY OR AMEND ATTORNEY INFORMATION Trial Court of Massachusetts District Court Department in MassCourts, BasCOT-Civil, BasCOT-Criminal & WMS IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ATTORNEYS ABOUT THIS FORM – PLEASE READ The computerized case processing systems used in some District Court divisions (BasCOT-Civil for civil cases, and either MassCourts, BasCOT-Criminal or WMS for criminal cases) are periodically updated with name and business address information for Massachusetts attorneys sent electronically from the Board of Bar Overseers (BBO). MASSACHUSETTS ATTORNEY INFORMATION. This form permits you to update name or business address information for a Massachusetts attorney on these computer systems until the next electronic update of attorney information is received from the BBO. It is essential that Massachusetts attorneys report address changes to the BBO within 30 days (as required by SJC Rule 4:02), and petitions for name changes to the clerk of the Supreme Judicial Court for Suffolk County, since any changes made by submitting this form will be overridden by the next electronic update of attorney information from the BBO. (In the case of MassCourts, changes made by submitting this form will remain in the system for 14 days and thereafter will be overridden by the next electronic update of attorney information from the BBO.) Attorneys may now report both business and residential address changes to the BBO online at http://www.state.ma.us/obcbbo/bboreg/address.htm or by fax to the BBO at (617) 728-8856. Please note that these computer systems do not currently record multiple business addresses for an attorney. An attorney’s address must be the same as that attorney’s business address on file with the BBO. OUT-OF-STATE ATTORNEYS & RULE 3:03 or 3:04 LAW STUDENTS.

Rules 3:03 or 3:04. AOTC’s Information Services Department will assign these a special number (beginning with the letter “F” for foreign attorneys, and “S” for law students) for use in these systems, in lieu of a Massachusetts BBO number. “F” and “S” listings will not be affected by subsequent BBO updates for Massachusetts attorneys.
