Welcome to the Barnstable County Lawyer Referral Service

The Lawyer Referral service is a service designed to assist the public in locating lawyers for their particular legal situation. The service makes referrals to many areas of law:
  • Personal Injury
  • Family Law, including child support, custody and divorce
  • Estate Planning, including simple wills and more complex trusts
  • Criminal Defense
  • Workers Compensation
  • Bankruptcy
  • Real Estate, both residential and commercial
  • Business Law

And many more.

We will consider your specific legal problem, as well as your location and other requirements in order to make the most appropriate and convenient referral. Referrals are usually made to an attorney who practices in the specific area of expertise requested. To enable our staff to provide you with effective assistance, please be prepared to explain your legal problem.

After a brief consultation with a lawyer, clients determine if they would like to hire the lawyer at the lawyer's regular fees. For some cases, such as those involving personal injury, the lawyer may agree to take your case on a contingency fee basis, in which case no legal fee is paid unless and until you win the case. There is no obligation to retain the lawyer to whom you are referred.

Lawyer of the Day Program

If you cannot afford an attorney and are representing yourself with regards to a matter in the Barnstable Probate and Family Court, you may qualify for legal assistance provided by the BCBA "Lawyer of the Day" program. Under this program, Barnstable County Bar Association volunteer lawyers are available each day in the Probate and Family Court to assist low-income and elderly individuals with the preparation of pleadings, documents and forms. The Lawyer of the Day can also explain the on-going legal process and procedures of the Court.
