NH Bar Thanks Lawline Hosts
The NH Bar Association would like to thank Gallagher Callahan & Gartrell of Concord for hosting Lawline on Wednesday, Jan. 11. Attorneys Susan Hollinger, Caroline Leonard, and Matthew Cairns worked together to answer questions that came in from all over the state and pertained to a variety of legal issues.
When asked about the experience, Cairns stated, “You don’t realize how many people are looking for answers to basic legal questions until you man the incoming call line. While we were able to assist 30 callers, dozens of calls were unable to be picked up. Each caller we spoke to expressed profound gratitude for this important service.”
Lawline is a public service program coordinated by the NH Bar Association. Attorneys volunteer each month from a central location or various locations across the state to answer calls from members of the public between 6 and 8 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month.
For more information or to volunteer to host Lawline, please contact NHBA Lawline Coordinator Jacqueline Geddes.
