Welcome to the MA Small Claims Wiki

The Small Claims Advisory Service is the only organization in Massachusetts that focuses

primarily on helping individuals navigate the small claims court system in the Commonwealth.

Small Claims

Our mission is to empower socioeconomically disadvantaged people in order for them to seek

legal redress effectively through the small claims system, and to protect their rights as

consumers, tenants, and members of our community. Often, these individuals are unaware of

their options without our help. Through telephone communication and appointments, we

provide citizens with information on Massachusetts law, small claims procedure, and effective

court presentations.

For more information on SCAS, please see History of SCAS.
