Those individuals who do not meet federal income guidelines will be referred to an attorney who has volunteered to participate in the program of the Foreclosure Task Force of the Hampden County (MA) Bar Association and provide free initial consultation and thereafter free (pro bono) or reduced fee services depending upon your financial circumstances and the nature of the legal services that are required.
