MBA, WBZ teamwork helps 200-plus callers
Massachusetts Bar Association volunteers answered legal
questions from 206 callers in just two hours at the Ask-A-Lawyer
call-in program, held at the WBZ studios in Brighton on Nov. 30.
Continuing what has become an annual tradition, Ask-A-Lawyer was
presented jointly by the Massachusetts Bar Association (MBA), WBZ
Call for Action and WBZ NewsRadio 1030.
Typical of past Ask-A-Lawyer and Dial-A-Lawyer events, most of
the calls involved questions about family law and real estate law,
followed closely by torts-related questions. The MBA volunteers
also fielded calls ranging from immigration law to collections to
criminal law, among others.
During the second hour of Ask-A-Lawyer, MBA President Jeffrey
Catalano appeared as a guest on NightSide with Dan Rea, where he
talked about MBA initiatives and answered questions from callers
from as far away as Alabama. The event created an excellent
opportunity to showcase the efforts of the MBA volunteers, as well
as the MBA's Lawyer Referral Service. Throughout the program, Rea
and Catalano reminded listeners to visit www.MassLawHelp.com for
instant online referrals that are available 24/7.

Thank you to our partners and hosts at WBZ Call for Action, WBZ
NewsRadio 1030 and NightSide with Dan Rea. Special thanks to the
MBA lawyers who donated their time and expertise to this worthwhile
