The MDRF's Mission

Our Mission is to improve the quality of life for people who are unduly burdened with excessive debt by providing compassionate and effective pro bono legal representation in order to eliminate debt and restore peace of mind.

Many residents of Massachusetts, through no fault of their own, whether due to illness, disability, job loss, scarcity of employment opportunities or for other reasons are unable to stay current with their financial obligations and can find themselves feeling vulnerable because they cannot pay their bills. With each passing month, balances grow on credit cards due to interest, late fees and collection costs. Medical bills can also get out of control, especially because of a sudden hospitalization or catastrophic injury. Without bankruptcy assistance, several of our fellow citizens will be dangerously and needlessly close to living in poverty or already are.

The Massachusetts Debt Relief Foundation is a place for those people to turn to. We can offer a fresh financial start that a chapter 7 bankruptcy can provide to individuals who are unable to afford to pay legal fees or court filing fees. For those qualifying candidates, our team of experienced bankruptcy attorneys and legal support staff throughout our offices in Massachusetts will assist these individuals from beginning to end, at no financial cost to them in counseling, preparation and filing of their pro bono bankruptcy petition, as well as ask the court to waive the filing fees.

In keeping with the spirit of pro bono aspirations, our clients volunteer some of their time assisting a local charity of their choosing. Our goal is to help those who help others build a better community through debt relief.
