Veterans are urged to access free legal advice provided by the Massachusetts Bar Association
BOSTON – Senator Timilty announces that the local Massachusetts Bar Association lawyers are offering free legal advice to veterans. This free Veterans Dial-A-Lawyer program, a part of the MBA’s Serving our Veterans in the Law initiative, will take place on Thursday, April 29 from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
“I urge any veteran with legal questions to take advantage of this free service,” said Timilty. “Veterans and families of veterans have the opportunity to ask questions regarding the wide range of extremely important benefits and services that the state has to offer to those whose served our country.”
Volunteer lawyers will field phone calls and answer questions on any legal issue, including those related to state and federal benefits. Legal advice may address a variety of topics, including family issues, employment concerns, landlord or tenant matter, and access to a wide range of benefits.
The Dial-a-Lawyer phone number is 617-338-0610, if callers receive a busy signal they are asked to hang up and try again. Callers must be Massachusetts veterans of the armed services. This free program is offered as a public service of the Massachusetts Bar Association in partner with the Massachusetts Department of Veterans and funded by the Massachusetts Bar Foundation.
Senator Jim Timilty urges all constituents who have any questions concerning this project to contact his State House office at 617-722-1222.
