About Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts of Massachusetts

Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts of Massachusetts provides legal services, advice, and educational programming to artists and cultural organizations in Massachusetts. To apply please download an application online and mail to 15 Channel Center Street #103, Boston, MA 02210.

Based on the information in your application, the VLA will determine if your legal issue can be addressed by the A&BC office directly or whether it is more appropriate to refer you to a VLA panel attorney. Emails are sent every two weeks to the panel of attorneys, and cases are typically placed within 2-3 weeks. While the VLA will do its best to place urgent matters, we may not be able to provide urgent assistance due to the volunteer nature of our panel. Please note that we cannot guarantee an attorney will be located for your matter.

If you are eligible for free legal services, the VLA will attempt to refer you to a volunteer attorney. If it is determined that you are not eligible for free legal services, the VLA will refer you to a VLA Member Attorney. Our Member Attorneys are lawyers dedicated to assisting artists and arts organizations, and thus are often willing to negotiate their fees.

Mission Statement: The Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston invests in the people and organizations that create the art we love. We do this through integrated and responsive programs and services designed to support and nurture the creative ecosystem.

*Alaska and Hawaii have different rates for HUD federal poverty guidelines.
These numbers above represent 100% of the Federal Poverty Rate. In order to get legal aid from some offices, they use a sliding fee scale. When they use a sliding fee scale, the 100% rate can be different than 100%. In those cases, using for example a 200% federal poverty level, you will only need double the 100% number listed above to 200%.
