Legal Aid Referrals
As a public official Senator Eldridge and his staff are prohibited from becoming directly involved in ongoing legal proceedings or giving legal advice. However, if you are a constituent and you have a question about a specific area of law or need legal advice or representation our office can refer you to an appropriate legal aid organization in the region.
For help finding the right legal aid organization for your case, please contact the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation at www.mlac.org or by calling (617)-367-8544.
