Montgomery Bar Association Offers Timely Resources for County Lawyers and Residents

By
Montgomery Bar Association's Norristown Office

Amidst the latest flurry of concerns, restrictions and limitations brought on by the Coronavirus pandemic,Montgomery Bar Association is now offering a variety of timely resources and services online for members of our legal community, and neighboring residents and businesses alike.

For attorneys and members of its extended legal community, a  COVID-19 RESOURCE PAGE has been added to the Bar Association’s website, MontgomeryBar.org, to centralize and share late-breaking news and information regarding COVID-19, and how it affects area legal professionals, clients, and local courts.

The Resource Page includes links to the county’s robust and informative resources; emergency MBA contacts, information and updates on events and cancellations, as well as a centralized repository for court-related information and announcements such as emergency court orders, and procedural updates from county, state, and federal courts and more.

While all of Montgomery Bar Association’s facility operations, live programming and continuing legal education (CLE) courses have been temporarily halted, attorneys and legal professionals wishing to use this time to catch up or get a jump on their requisite CLE credits can now do so online, and at their leisure via Montgomery Bar Association’s recently launched ONLINE CLE CENTER.

The MBA’s recently launched Online CLE Center offers a searchable and carefully curated library of popular accredited CLE programs presented by local practitioners, partners, judges and subject matter experts.

When logged in on the Bar’s website, MBA members can now view and take advantage of significant discounts, and anyone can view or preview these programs online from the safety and convenience of their home, office, or mobile devices.  Presently, attorneys in Pennsylvania may earn up to six (6) of their required CLE credits via distance learning (online) per year.

For businesses or residents seeking a qualified referral to a locally based attorney who can advise them on matters related to COVID-19, or any number of other legal matters, like divorce, personal injury, business and employment matters, and so on, Montgomery Bar Association’s ONLINE LAWYER REFERRAL SERVICE will remain operational and accessible 24/7/365.

The Bar Association’s phone-in Referral Service will also remain open between the hours of 9 am and 4 pm, Monday through Friday.  Much like the Bar Association’s walk-in service which has been temporarily suspended in the wake of current events, the Bar Association’s online and phone-in and Lawyer Referral Service will prompt users to provide some basic information, and will in-turn provide the name and contact information of a vetted and qualified member attorney who can help, based on specified areas of law, and geographical criteria.

For more information or to receive an instant online referral today, visit the Montgomery Bar Association’s website or directly go to REALLAWYERS.ORG.

Montgomery Bar Association reminds us that its usual variety of free consumer publications and resources are also available online anytime at MontgomeryBar.org.

Visit the MBA website’s PUBLICATIONS tab to read or download popular publications like its free Elder Law HandbookCriminal Law Handbook, or to navigate to current and weekly editions of The Montgomery County Law Reporter and quarterly issues of SIDEBAR Magazine.
