Western Massachusetts residents can receive free legal advice Feb. 11 through “Your Money Monday: Lawyers on the Line” presented by the MBA and ABC40
Residents of Western Massachusetts can receive free legal advice
on Monday, Feb. 11 by participating in the "Your Money Monday:
Lawyers on the Line" call-in segment presented jointly by the
Massachusetts Bar Association and WGGB-TV, the station that
broadcasts ABC 40 and Fox 6.
"The Massachusetts Bar Association is proud to team up with
ABC40 and offer Western Massachusetts residents a chance to speak
with an attorney about their legal concerns," MBA President Robert
L. Holloway Jr. said. "As the country's economic struggles
continue, the number of residents in need of legal help grows. We
hope this program can help meet that need."
Western Massachusetts residents who have legal concerns or
problems can reach volunteer lawyers from the MBA from 5 to 6: 30
p.m. on Feb. 11. The call-in program will run while ABC40 airs its
The Your Money Monday: Lawyers on the Line phone number
is (413) 846-0240. Normal telephone charges will apply. The legal
advice is provided at no charge as a public service.
While volunteer lawyers field calls, Keith A. Minoff, a leader
at the MBA and an attorney with his own firm in Springfield, will
discuss the MBA's public service programs, the MBA Lawyer Referral
Service and MBA efforts to lobby for adequate funding for the
state's court system.
