Eligibility for HLA Services

In general, to be eligible for our services, a client should have income no greater than 300% of Federal Poverty Level Guidelines and lack other financial means to afford a private lawyer. As of January 2016, 300% of the Federal Poverty Level is $35,310 annually for an individual and $72,750 annually for a family of four.

When you contact HLA, we will determine whether you are eligible for HLA's services. This may require an intake interview by telephone.

If we do not accept your case, we will try to refer you elsewhere for help. If you do not live in Massachusetts, we recommend that you contact a legal aid office or attorney referral service in your area. A local legal aid office will be better able to direct you to someone who can help in your state.



The contact form below is currently out of service. Please call HLA directly at 617-338-5241 or call our toll-free number at 1-888-211-6168 to speak to our paralegal/intake coordinator. Thank you!
