Volunteer to offer legal assistance to Boston Marathon bombing victims

The Massachusetts Bar Association is offering legal assistance to victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

In addition to offering victims legal representation when needed, the MBA will provide a Dial-A-Lawyer session specifically for bombing victims on Thursday, May 30. Visit www.massbar.org/BostonStrong to learn more about the MBA's efforts and how you can help. Click here to donate to The One Fund Boston, which was set-up to directly benefit those most effected by the tragic events. Attorney Kenneth Feinberg was appointed administrator of the fund.

"The MBA is working closely with Ken Feinberg and his team and we have helped him navigate and clear some of the behind-the-scenes issues that were standing in his path to access vitally-needed victim data," MBA Chief Operating Officer and Chief Legal Counsel Martin W. Healy said.

The MBA is also seeking attorneys who are available to volunteer to take one case, if called upon. The MBA anticipates that there will likely be a need for legal help in the areas of housing, disability claims, workers' compensation, employment and insurance.

If you, or any of your colleagues, want to help, please contact the MBA at (617) 338-0695 or [e-mail communityservices] and specify your area of expertise.
