Volunteers needed to offer legal advice to veterans

Veterans and their families will have access to free legal advice on April 27 as part of the Massachusetts Bar Association's Dial-A-Lawyer program. Veterans and their families can call the program from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to discuss legal issues they have, such as access to benefits, family issues, employment concerns and landlord/tenant matters.

The program is provided at no charge as a public service of the MBA.

Attorneys participating in the Veterans Dial-A-Lawyer program are either past participants of the other three veteran-specific Dial-A-Lawyer programs or past participants of the monthly Dial-A-Lawyer program, which takes place on the first Wednesday of every month. To volunteer for this or future programs, call (617) 338-0556 or e-mail [e-mail LRS].

This program is offered as a public service of the Massachusetts Bar Association with the financial support of the Massachusetts Bar Foundation. The MBA acknowledges its partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Veterans' Services and thanks it for its important role in the success of the program.
