Free legal information offered Friday

N.C. lawyers will give freely of their time and talent on Friday as participants in the North Carolina Bar Association’s seventh annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day.
Volunteer attorneys will provide free legal information from eight call centers across the state from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the exception of the Spanish-language call center at the N.C. Bar Center which will operate from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
The NCBA provides three phone numbers in advance of the event: 1-888-442-3428 for the eastern part of the state; 1-800-638-2869 for the western part of the state; and 1-855-455-4255 for the Spanish-language call center. All three numbers are accessible from anywhere in North Carolina.
The other call center numbers hosted by TV partners will be provided on the day of the event and promoted extensively by the respective television stations. Since these numbers are used for other purposes, they are not provided in advance.
Stations hosting call centers are WLOS News 13 in Asheville; WBTV News in Charlotte; WFMY News 2 in Greensboro with The Volunteer Center and United Way of Greater Greensboro; WNCT 9 On Your Side in Greenville; and WRAL-TV5 in Raleigh.
The Williams Mullen firm in Wilmington and Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice in Winston-Salem are also hosting call centers.
The statewide service project coincides with the NCBA’s 4ALL campaign to provide civil legal aid to the poor. 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 2014 4ALL Statewide Service Day is led by Stephanie Crosby of New Bern and Afi Johnson-Parris of Greensboro.
