Find civil legal help in Massachusetts
Depending upon your age, income and the kind of legal problem you are having, you may be eligible for free legal help. To find out which legal services programs help people in your area, use the Find Legal Aid search below. (These programs cannot help with criminal law problems.) In most cases, your after tax income must be less than 125% of the federal poverty threshold to be eligible for assistance. (See the list of Lawyer Referral Services in the left column if you are over income.) Also, you can go to www.MassLegalHelp.org for legal information and self help materials.
If you are looking for the address or phone number of a specific legal services program, click on the program’s name from the list at the bottom of this screen. Or, click on an orange marker on the Find Legal Aid Map -- each of the markers shows the location of a civil legal services program.
