On Thursday, May 18, the MBA will offer the citizens of Western Massachusetts its semi-annual Dial-a-Lawyer program. The program is co-sponsored by Western New England College School of Law, The Republican, El Pueblo Latino and the Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys. On that day, MBA member volunteers from Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire and Hampden counties will staff a telephone bank generously provided by WNEC to answer legal questions from the public.
For several days prior to the May 18 event, television and radio stations and newspapers will publicize the event to encourage their audiences to call in with legal questions.
The MBA is seeking lawyers to volunteer for a two-hour shift on the May 18 between 3:30 and 7:30 p.m. If you have any questions, please call either Christine Baronas at (413) 731-5134 in the MBA's Springfield office or Elizabeth O'Neil at (617) 338-0560 in the MBA's Boston office.
