Lawyers Can Help: GLAD’s Lawyer Referral Service

GLAD receives thousands of phone calls each year from individuals seeking legal counsel and representation. It is critical that we are able to refer them to experienced attorneys throughout New England who are sensitive to the legal concerns of LGBTQ+ individuals, and people living with HIV.

You can make a difference by joining GLAD’s Lawyer Referral Service (LRS). Participating in GLAD’s LRS enables you to promote your practice and provide a service to the community at the same time.

Cooperating Attorneys

GLAD’s cooperating attorneys work in conjunction with GLAD staff attorneys on impact cases. They may act as co-counsel or may act in a supportive capacity providing legal research, writing and strategy. GLAD cooperating attorneys must carry their own malpractice insurance and must be members in good standing with one of the New England state Bar Associations.
