From the MTLA Blog (http://transgenderlegaladvocates.blogspot.com/):

About Massachusetts Transgender Legal Advocates (MTLA): Massachusetts Transgender Legal Advocates is a small group of law students and lawyers committed to addressing the needs of low income transgender people in Massachusetts.  MTLA recognizes that a lack of public awareness about trans people can make it difficult to navigate the legal system. Our legal team is composed of trans folks and their significant others, family, and friends.  Whether it involves talking you through a process, helping you to find an attorney you can afford, or addressing your issue ourselves, MTLA will do what we can to address your legal needs.

How to schedule an appoinment with an advocate: Schedule an appointment by calling 617-450-1353 and leaving a voicemail, or just drop in. An advocate will meet with you to discuss your legal concern and will work to explain your rights, find you an appropriate free or low-cost lawyer, or organize legal representation through MTLA.After visiting MTLA, expect to know within one week whether we will be able to take your case.  We will do our best to find someone else to take it if we cannot.
