The Lawyer Referral Service

Do you need a lawyer? A good lawyer can protect your freedom, finances and safety through many of life’s journeys — the good, the bad, the ugly and the utterly ordinary.

Are you buying or selling a house, starting a business, or adopting a child? Perhaps you are trapped in an abusive relationship, or discriminated against at work. Or you might have been accused of a crime, or are going through a divorce. No matter who you are, at some point in life you will probably need a good lawyer.

How it Works

Call us at (413) 586-8729. Your call will be answered by a Lawyer Referral Service staff member who will take your name and mailing address. You will be asked to briefly state your situation or problem. Any information you provide will be held in strict confidence.

The staff member will give you the name, address and telephone number of a local lawyer who handles the type of case you describe.

After the first meeting between you and the referred lawyer, it is up to you to decide whether to authorize the lawyer to take action on your behalf.

You will have up to one-half hour — free of charge — to discuss your matter with the attorney. The fee for any additional service should be arranged during your initial meeting.

If the first lawyer you meet with does not satisfy your requirements — you may obtain up to three separate referrals for each case.

Any attorney you meet with for a consultation will present you with a clear up-front estimate of anticipated legal fees and costs, before you make a decision to retain their services.
