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 evening newscast.

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.

ABC40/Fox6 is the Pioneer Valley's source for breaking news, weather, traffic and national information, 24/7, online and on the air. ABC40/Fox 6 is locally owned by Gormally Broadcasting LLC in Springfield.
