In 2013, the Massachusetts Appeals Court upheld a Superior Court jury's verdict in favor of Josh's clients against their former attorney for charging an unfair and excessive fee and affirmed the trial Judge's award of triple damages and attorney's fees under the Consumer Protection Act, commonly known as chapter 93A.
