MBA teams with WBZ Call for Action to offer Mass. residents free legal advice

Volunteer lawyers from the MBA will field phone calls from 7 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 20

Massachusetts residents can receive free legal advice on Wednesday, Aug. 20, by participating in the Ask A Lawyer call-in program presented jointly by the Massachusetts Bar Association and WBZ Call for Action.

"Ask A Lawyer makes it easy for members of the public to talk anonymously to a qualified attorney who can provide answers to their legal questions and advice about legal services -- all at no charge," MBA President-elect Marsha V. Kazarosian said. "The MBA is proud to continue our partnership with WBZ NewsRadio 1030 on this valuable program, which provides a much-needed lifeline for people who don't know where to turn when legal issues arise."

Volunteer lawyers from the MBA will be at the WBZ studios to field phone calls on Aug. 20, from 7 to 9 p.m., from Bay State residents who have legal concerns or problems. The legal advice is provided at no charge as a public service.

The Ask A Lawyer phone number is (617) 787-7070. If a caller gets a busy signal, they are asked to hang up and try again. Normal telephone charges will apply. NOTE: The phones will only be staffed by MBA attorneys from 7 to 9 p.m. on Aug. 20.


While volunteer lawyers field calls, Kazarosian will address key legal topics from 8 to 9 p.m. as a guest on WBZ NewsRadio's NightSide with Dan Rea. Kazarosian will discuss the ways in which the MBA works to serve both lawyers and members of the community through efforts such as its monthly Dial-A-Lawyer program, Lawyer Referral Service and other public initiatives.
