Volunteers Are Heart and Soul of Lawyer for the Day in the Boston Housing Court Program

Every Wednesday and Thursday, volunteer lawyers offer legal advice to landlords and tenants at a busy table through the Lawyer for the Day at the Boston Housing Court Program. The BBA has teamed up with the Volunteer Lawyers Project (whose longstanding relationship with the BBA goes back to 1977, to provide assistance to more than 14,732 landlords and tenants in the program’s history).

For more about the recent volunteers for the program, please click here.


Yugo Nakai (Volunteer Lawyers Project), Heather Ward (Law Office of Heather M. Ward), and Isabel Burney (Volunteer Lawyers Project) provide legal advice to tenants and landlords at the Boston Housing Court.


The Boston Housing Court is crowded on Wednesdays and Thursdays when landlords and tenants can receive legal advice and full representation from volunteer lawyers.

This program is supported by the Boston Bar Foundation’s Herbert W. Vaughan Fund, which is dedicated to supporting real estate-related pro bono, public service, and civic programs of the Boston Bar Association.
