Western Massachusetts residents can receive free legal advice from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18, through the Massachusetts Bar Association's semiannual Western Mass. Dial-A-Lawyer call-in program.

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

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