Professional Regulation and Constitutional Law: First Amendment Challenge to State Law

We represented the Massachusetts Board of Public Accountancy in defending against a First Amendment challenge to a state law that barred accountants who were not certified public accountants from describing themselves as “accountants,” with any modifier such as “expert” or “qualified,” or as “public accountants.” The Supreme Judicial Court upheld the constitutionality of the law in favor of our client. Volin v. Bd. Of Public Accountancy, 422 Mass. 75 (1996).
