LAWYER FOR A DAY
The Lawyer for a Day program in Housing Court is a collaboration involving the HCLC, the Women’s Bar Foundation, MassMutual, Community Legal Aid, and Western New England School of Law. The court refers self-represented tenants and landlords with summary process cases scheduled on that day to the Housing Court Lawyer for a Day program. Community Legal Aid staff attorneys and paralegals, volunteer attorneys, law students, and other advocates provide a range of legal help, including:
Accessing and applying for community resources, including rental assistance
Advice and counsel
Preparing court forms such as Answers and Motions to Remove Default
Representation in mediation or court hearings.
If you do not have a matter before the Court yet and are looking for out-of-court brief legal advice, please read more about our Landlord/Tenant Lawyer for a Day .
If you are looking for full representation, please consider the Hampden County Bar Association's Lawyer Referral and Information Service "LRIS" for additional legal services.
