The National Lawyers Guild Massachusetts Chapter maintains a Lawyer Referral Service geared towards low- or middle-income clients. A staff member will provide the caller with the contact information for an attorney with experience in the area of law where the client's legal problem exists. If calling outside of regular service hours, leave a message with your name and telephone number, and a staff member will return your call. Alternatively, requests may be submitted via a form on the NLG-Massachusetts website at

Service is by telephone and e-mail. Walk-ins are not accepted.

Service hours:

M - F: 9am - 4pm. If call is made after hours, leave a message.
