BOSTON — Massachusetts residents can receive free legal advice on Wednesday, Nov. 20, by participating in the Ask A Lawyer call-in program, presented by the Massachusetts Bar Association, WBZ Call for Action, WBZ NewsRadio 1030 and WBZ-TV.

Volunteer lawyers from the Mass. Bar Association will be at the studios of WBZ-TV to field phone calls from 7 to 9 p.m., on Nov. 20, from Massachusetts residents who have legal concerns or problems. The legal advice is provided for free as a public service. 

The Ask A Lawyer phone number is (617) 787-7070. If a caller gets a busy signal, they are asked to hang up and try again. Normal telephone charges will apply.

“If you cannot afford a lawyer, or if you don’t know where to turn for help, the Ask A Lawyer program makes it easier for people to get answers to their legal questions,” said MBA President John J. Morrissey.

While volunteer lawyers field calls, Morrissey will appear as a guest on WBZ NewsRadio’s NightSide with Dan Rea, where he will discuss the ways in which the Massachusetts Bar Association works to serve lawyers and all Massachusetts residents through programs, such as its monthly Dial-A-Lawyer program, Lawyer Referral Service ( and other public initiatives.

WBZ Call for Action, in existence for 48 years, is a non-profit telephone information, referral and action service dedicated to resolving people’s problems. A free service, it is a member of the national organization, Call For Action, Inc.
