Chat with lawyer for free on Friday


Staff Report



LUMBERTON — North Carolina residents are being offered the chance to speak with a lawyer by telephone for free on Friday during the North Carolina Bar Association’s 10th annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day.

Call-in centers around the state will operate from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., with the exception of Wilmington, where telephones will be manned from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The call-in center in Fayetteville will be at Hutchens Law Firm, and the number to call is 910-884-3907.

Volunteer attorneys will staff other call centers in Asheville, at WLOS News 13; Charlotte, at WBTV; Greensboro, at United Way of Greater Greensboro; Greenville, at WNCT-CBS; Raleigh, at WRAL-TV; and Wilmington, at WECT TV6.

Phone numbers for each call center will be promoted throughout the day by the television stations hosting call centers and on the NCBA website, www.ncbar.org. In instances where stations are not hosting, WRAL-TV will display the Fayetteville phone number and WFMY News 2 will advertise the Greensboro phone number.

The phone numbers should only be accessed during the prescribed hours of the event, and that the statewide service day is a telephone-only program.

The 4ALL Statewide Service Day is presented by the NCBA as a public service to the residents of North Carolina, and no attorney-client or business relationships may be established through this program.
