Massachusetts Bar Association Pro Bono Program Assists Veterans

Tuesday, March 2, 2010 - 01:00

On Thursday, April 29, the Massachusetts Bar Association is sponsoring a pro bono legal service called Veterans Dial-A-Lawyer. The voluntary program runs from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Volunteer attorneys will offer free legal advice and information to veterans and their families who are experiencing legal problems such as access to benefits, family issues, employment concerns and landlord/tenant matters.

This successful program is undertaken each fall and spring as a supplement to the "Dial-A-Lawyer" program held each month by the bar and volunteer attorney members.

If you are an attorney who would like to volunteer for Veterans Dial-A-Lawyer, contact the MBA's Boston office at (617) 338-0556 or the Springfield office at (413) 731-5134.
