Areas of Law

The Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service has been connecting people with the right lawyer for over 50 years. As the largest public service program of the Boston Bar Association, we have attorneys who practice in more than 350 areas of law. The areas of law below serve as a guide to some of our most requested practice areas.

If you are looking for further information about when you should speak with an attorney, we encourage you to call one of our free referral specialists who can help determine the best referral for you at (617) 742-0625. You may also request a referral online.

We only refer you to attorneys who are experienced, insured, and in good standing with the licensing board of the state, the Board of Bar Overseers.
