Military Legal Help Line

The Boston Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service is committed to serving military members, veterans, and their families through our Military Legal Help Line.

This line connects veterans, military personnel, and their families with lawyers and other legal resources appropriate to their needs. We make referrals to qualified attorneys, or the appropriate legal service or government agency. The attorneys who accept referrals through the Military Legal Help Line have completed specialized training to understand the legal issues facing military members, veterans, and their families in a variety of practice areas.

We have panels dedicated to helping clients with Bankruptcy Law, Employment Law, Family Law, and Trusts & Estates, Benefits, and more. Please indicate your military affiliation when contacting us, so our intake specialists make the most accurate referral.
