Mass. Bar Association Offering Free Legal Advice

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — The Massachusetts Bar Association is offering a program to residents who need free legal advice during the pandemic.

The “Dial-A-Lawyer” program is taking the calls of those who need legal advice on the first Wednesday of every month, from 5:30-7:30 PM.

Personal injury attorney Sam Segal, of the Law Offices of Samuel A. Segal, is one of the lawyers who volunteers to answer questions on the help line. He said the pandemic has brought a crop of new legal challenges.

Segal said legal questions he gets have ranged from the eviction moratorium to unemployment insurance and job loss from the pandemic.

“These are new issues and they’re complicated issues, and even as attorneys we’re still trying to figure it out as we go along as well,” Segal said.

“We answer the phones and do our best to give them the best legal advice we can,” he noted.

The Dial-A-Lawyer help line is available between 5:30-7:30 PM, the first Wednesday of every month, at (617) 338-0610.
