Medical-Legal Partnership | Boston
MLP | Boston's mission is to equip healthcare, public health and human services teams with legal problem-solving strategies that promote health equity for vulnerable people.
Bolstered by pro bono volunteers from more than 25 law firms and companies as well as many bar association members, we proudly serve patients and support provider teams through partnerships with hospitals, healthcare systems and family support programs in Eastern Massachusetts. We deploy legal problem-solving strategies across the age and health continuum, and dedicate substantial effort to building advocacy capacity in the healthcare and allied workforce through trainings, tools, and ongoing consultation.
Because a majority of our clients have experienced victim/witness trauma, we serve patients through the lens of trauma-informed advocacy.
We are proud to be bridging a gap between law and medicine, professions that too often have served a common constituency – low-income, medically vulnerable people – in isolation.
