NORTHAMPTON – The Massachusetts Bar Association is providing free legal advice to western Massachusetts residents on Oct. 30 through its semi-annual Dial-A-Lawyer call-in program. 

Volunteer lawyers from the MBA will field phone calls from 4 to 7 p.m. from residents of Hampshire, Berkshire, Franklin and Hampden counties who have legal concerns or problems. 

“Many people in Massachusetts face unmet legal needs because their work schedules or other commitments prevent them from connecting with a lawyer, or they are unsure of where to go for help,” MBA President Christopher A. Kenney said in a statement announcing the service. “Our Western Mass. Dial-A-Lawyer program provides local residents with free and convenient access to a knowledgeable team of volunteer lawyers, who help us fulfill our continued commitment to increasing access to justice across the state.” 

The Dial-A-Lawyer phone number is 413-782-1659. If a caller gets a busy signal, that person is asked to hang up and try again. Normal telephone charges will apply. 

The MBA’s Dial-A-Lawyer program is co-sponsored by Western New England University School of Law, The Republican, El Pueblo Latino, the Massachusetts Association of Hispanic Attorneys and the Hispanic National Bar Association.
