Twenty-four Massachusetts Bar Association volunteers received a record 237 calls during the most recent Dial-A-Lawyer program on Wednesday, Aug. 3. 

The high number of callers who received free legal assistance coincides with an overall increase in participation since the monthly program shifted to a fully remote format in May 2020. Traditionally held at the MBA's Boston office during the first 29 years of the program, Dial-A-Lawyer now attracts volunteers from across Massachusetts and from neighboring states.
