There is a CORI table for walk-ins at the Dorchester courthouse. The CORI Table is next to the clerk's office on the 1st floor. At other times, call GBLS for an intake from 9am to 5pm Mon-Fri. If there is a very high volume of calls, you may be put on hold, but your call will eventually be answered.

The Dorchester Community CORI Project is a program of Greater Boston Legal Services in collaboration with volunteer lawyers and law students. Attorneys and supervised law students provide free legal advice and/or represent individuals trying to seal cases. Expungement cases, appeals and systemic CORI problems are also handled. The Project puts on community education events targeted to Roxbury and Dorchester residents.
