Supporting the Massachusetts legal aid community since 1983

The Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation was established by the Commonwealth to ensure that low-income people with critical, non-criminal legal problems would have access to legal information, advice and representation. We are the largest funding source for civil legal aid programs in the Commonwealth.
