The Online Resource for Massachusetts Poverty Law Advocates

Welcome to, the online poverty law library and collaboration resource for legal services advocates in Massachusetts.

MassLegalServices offers resources and information about legal issues facing lower income Massachusetts residents to legal services advocates and social services professionals. If you are not a lawyer or legal advocate, you will probably find MassLegalHelp more useful.

To see if free legal representation for your civil legal problem is available, use the Massachusetts Legal Resource Finder.

If you are an attorney looking for a pro bono opportunity, see -- the website for pro bono attorneys and volunteers in Massachusetts.
