MassLegalHelp offers information not advice
We manage this website to help Massachusetts residents understand their legal rights and responsibilities. We can only give you information to explain what the laws say. We cannot give you advice about how the law would treat your legal problem and what you should do about it. The information on this site is only for your education. None of the information in this web site is legal advice. We cannot tell you the best way to deal with your legal problem.
To get legal advice you need to speak with someone who
- is trained in the law and
- can spend time learning all of the details in your case.
We do not represent individuals in either civil or criminal cases. If you have a legal problem it is always best talk to a lawyer if you can. If you need legal advice you can contact your local legal services program, or lawyer referral program where you can speak with an lawyer or public defender.
The information on MassLegalHelp is not always complete, accurate or up to date. We try to keep all of our information accurate, up to date and easy to understand. If you find any mistakes, please let us know. We will correct them as soon as we can.
