Featured member benefit: Lawyer Referral Service
Expand your client base as an MBA LRS member; check out the new www.masslawhelp.com
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.
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
the LRS site to your website to provide your clients with answers
to frequently asked questions, as well as how to prepare for their
first meeting with an attorney. The website replaces the MBA's past
practice of distributing printed client pamphlets.
