Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service to House Military Legal Help Line

As part of the Boston Bar Association's ongoing efforts to provide crucial legal assistance to military personnel and veterans, the Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service will now house the Military Legal Help Line. This line was established to connect veterans, military personnel, and their families with lawyers and other legal resources appropriate to their needs. The service will refer callers to qualified attorneys offering reduced fee and pro bono legal assistance or the appropriate government or non-profit agency. All attorneys on the Lawyer Referral Service who have elected to take these cases are trained to assist with the unique legal issues faced by members of the military and their families.
