BBA LRS Boosts Legal Assistance for Our Troops and Veterans’

We are proud to report that since the transfer of the Military Legal Help Line to the BBA LRS on September 1st, we have received calls from more than 250 military personnel, veterans and family members.  Through the expansion of the Boston Bar Association’s Veterans’ Initiative, we were able connect 65% more callers to lawyers and legal services than last year.

The lawyers that accept referrals through the Military Legal Help Line are trained to assist with the unique legal issues facing this population, and accept reduced-fee and regular fee cases.

If you are an Active Duty Military Member, Veteran, or family member of either group looking for legal assistance, you can access the Military Legal Helpline by calling the BBA Lawyer Referral Service main number, 617-742-0625, or submitting an online request.
