Volunteer Opportunities For Our Members

Lawyer for the Day Program

Volunteers are needed in the Salem and Lawrence Probate & Family Courts. A coordinator is present to qualify clients and assist with filling out forms, but we also need attorneys to provide more extensive guidance. Hours for Salem are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9:00 a.m.— 12:00 p.m. Lawrence hours are Tuesday, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. If you would like to volunteer, as little or as much as you would like, contact: Attorney Sonya Shaffaval at sshaffaval.lawyer@yahoo.com.

*Programs made possible through a generous grant from the Massachusetts Bar Foundation.

Mentors Needed!

The ECBA membership continues to grow, especially with members who are new to the Massachusetts bar. We are hoping that some of our seasoned members will step up to the plate and volunteer to act as a mentor to our new attorneys as they register for the program. Although the Mentor Program covers all areas of law, there are several new lawyers who continue to wait for a mentor in the areas of Family Law, Probate Law, Employment Law, and Immigration Law. It would be greatly appreciated if you could spare a little time and provide some guidance to one of our new members. If you are interested, please contact Pam Surette at the ECBA, 978.741.7888.
