Massachusetts Bar Association
(MBA) volunteers answered legal questions from 206 callers in just
two hours at the Ask-A-Lawyer call-in program, held at the WBZ
studios in Brighton on Nov. 30. Continuing what has become an
annual tradition, Ask-A-Lawyer was presented jointly by the
Massachusetts Bar Association, WBZ Call for Action and WBZ
Typical of past Ask-A-Lawyer and Dial-A-Lawyer events, most of
the calls involved questions about family law and real estate law,
followed closely by torts-related questions. The MBA volunteers
also fielded calls ranging from immigration law to collections to
criminal law, among others.
During the second hour of Ask-A-Lawyer, MBA President Jeffrey
Catalano appeared as a guest on NightSide with Dan Rea, where he
talked about MBA initiatives and answered questions from callers
from as far away as Alabama. The event created an excellent
opportunity to showcase the efforts of the MBA volunteers, as well
as the MBA's Lawyer Referral Service. Throughout the program, Rea
and Catalano reminded listeners to visit www.MassLawHelp.com for instant online
referrals that are available 24/7.
