Picture This: DBA Happenings

Happy 15th Birthday!

The DBA Lawline 9 program celebrated its 15th anniversary on Feb. 6. This is a weekly program where attorneys field legal questions from the public. Lawline 9 would not be possible without the partnership of 9News and the program’s champions, Ann King and Paula Woodward. Ann, Paula and the 9News team have successfully developed a program that works. They welcome each volunteer, provide food and beverages, give tours of the studio, and are quick to attribute the program’s success to the work of the volunteers. There are 222 attorney volunteers for Lawline 9 and up to six staff the phones each and every Wednesday — rain or shine! A special thanks to all involved. Happy 15th!
