Legal Department Inquiries

Legal inquiries made by e-mail are always free for MBA members. There is a fee for telephone inquiries beyond the sixth call. After six, the calls are billed (once per year, in January) at $25 per call. Telephone inquiries are usually answered within 24 hours. Replies to e-mail may take up to one week.
