ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) — ASHEVILLE, N.C. — North Carolina lawyers will be standing by to take your calls on Friday, March 3, as participants in the North Carolina Bar Association’s ninth annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day.
Volunteer attorneys will staff call centers in Asheville (WLOS News 13), Charlotte (WBTV), Fayetteville (Hutchens Law Firm), Greensboro (United Way of Greater Greensboro), Greenville (WNCT-CBS), Raleigh (WRAL-TV) and Wilmington (WECT TV6) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m..
The statewide service project coincides with the NCBA’s 4ALL campaign to provide civil legal aid to those who otherwise would not have access to a lawyer.
The event was first held in 2008 during the term of NCBA President Janet Ward Black of Greensboro and has since taken on a life of its own and hundreds of volunteers gather annually to provide free legal information to thousands of North Carolinians.
The 2017 4ALL Statewide Service Day is being led by Ashley Bennington of Greensboro and Angie Dorsey of Asheville.
Phone numbers for each call center will be promoted throughout the day by the TV stations hosting call centers.
The 4ALL Statewide Service Day is presented by the NCBA as a public service to the citizens of North Carolina, and no attorney-client or business relationships may be established through this program.
