Mentor program is just a phone call away

If you have question about a specific area of law, the MBA's Mentor Program can put you in touch with an experienced attorney who can help. The program has attorneys in more than 150 areas of law, so chances are we can find someone who can assist you with a query.
MBA mentors are experienced practitioners who are in good standing with the MBA, have practiced law for more than seven years, and have agreed to voluntarily advise other members on areas of law within their legal expertise. The topics chosen by mentors constitute 50 percent or more of their practice.
Mentors volunteer their time to help other attorneys who are in need of legal advice. There is no limit to the number of referrals given through the program. If the problem or question is more complex and requires more time then a brief phone consult, the inquiring attorney and mentor may come to a mutually acceptable financial arrangement or receive additional mentor referrals.
The Mentor Program is a valuable opportunity for experienced attorneys to provide advice and direction to new attorneys as well as experienced colleagues who may be handling a new area of law. The program also is a great way to network with other attorneys and increase the chances of success.
To participate in this program, or be referred to a mentor, call (617) 338-0691 or e-mail [e-mail mentor].
