Lawyer Referral Service launches site

The Massachusetts Bar Association's Lawyer Referral Service, one of the largest referral services of its kind, has launched a new website to help connect members of the public with an attorney in their area who has the knowledge they need.

The user-friendly website, offered as a public service of the MBA, provides the public with answers to the most common legal questions in the areas of family law, labor and employment, estate planning, real estate, consumer protection, personal injury, criminal law, personal finance, business, individual rights, government benefits and services and immigration.

In addition, members of the public are provided with information about various legal services.

The website also makes it easy for the public to contact the MBA's LRS to find an attorney.

Go to www.masslawhelp.com to view the new public site, or to sign up to become a member of the MBA's LRS. Also, link your website to the LRS site to provide information to your clients.
