Western Mass. Dial-A-Lawyer Program
Twice a year, in the fall and spring, the MBA hosts a Western Mass. Dial-A-Lawyer program, where residents of Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties have the opportunity to have their legal questions answered by local volunteer attorneys. The program is co-sponsored by Western New England University School of Law, The Republican, El Pueblo Latino, the Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys and the Hispanic National Bar Association. The phone number, date and time of these events are published in the local newspaper and announced by the MBA several weeks prior to the event.
Ask A Lawyer Program
Every fall, MBA members participate in an Ask A Lawyer call-in program, presented jointly by the MBA, WBZ Call for Action and WBZ NewsRadio 1030. The program provides a lifeline to Massachusetts residents seeking answers to their legal questions, who may not be able to afford a lawyer or do not know where to turn for legal assistance.
