Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service


The Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service is a public service provided by the Boston Bar Association. We make referrals to lawyers or other resources that specialize in the area of law related to your specific situation.

We also operate the Military Legal Help Line. This line connects veterans, military personnel, and their families with lawyers and other legal resources.

Call between 9:00AM  and 5:00 PM or use our online intake from. No walk-ins.

There is no charge to use our service and get referrals. An initial half-hour consultation with the attorney will never cost more than $25. We have many attorneys who offer flexible fee structures, payment plans, and other options to accommodate your financial needs, however you must discuss the fees and billing directly with the attorney at the time of your call or consultation.

If you believe you qualify for reduced-fee services please call us to see if you qualify.

When calling the  Military Legal Help Line, callers should identify their affiliation with the military when calling. The Help Line will refer callers to qualified attorneys offering regular and reduced fee legal assistance, or the appropriate government or non-profit agency offering pro bono services.
