The Legal Resource Finder (LRF) will help you find out if VLP or some other legal aid program might be able to help you with your legal problem. It will also give you links to information that will help you to learn more about your legal issue. The LRF only includes information about civil – not criminal – issues. Click here for the Legal Resource Finder.
If you do not want to use the Legal Resource Finder, you can contact the Legal Advocacy Resource Center (LARC) Legal Advocacy and Resource Center (LARC) hotline at 617-603-1700 or 1-800-342-5297 for intake.
Whatever you tell LARC is private and confidential. A LARC staff person will ask you some questions to find out if you qualify for legal services from VLP or another office. LARC may be able to give you information or advice about your legal problem.
