Massachusetts Access to Justice

The Massachusetts Access to Justice initiative works to provide equal access to the court system for the public, including self-represented litigants, those with limited or no English proficiency, and individuals with mental or physical disabilities. This page guides you to information, legal aid, and community resources to help you solve your problem.

Interpreter access

The Office of Language Access (OLA) is responsible for coordinating and allocating interpreters to requesting courts in an effort to provide equitable access to justice across the entire Massachusetts court system. Interpreters are available at no cost. Please contact the court for more information using the map below or find your court through the Courthouse Locator
