Cary, NC – North Carolina lawyers will be standing by to take your calls on Friday, March 4, as participants in the North Carolina Bar Association’s ninth annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day.
Seven call centers spanning the state will be in operation from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.
Six of the call centers will be supported by local television stations that will promote their specific phone numbers throughout the day. The phone number for the Wilmington call center is 910-777-6001 and that number will be available throughout the day should citizens be unable to get through to their local call center.
Stations hosting call centers are WLOS News 13 in Asheville; WBTV News in Charlotte; WNCT 9 On Your Side in Greenville; and WRAL-TV5 in Raleigh. WFMY News 2 in Greensboro will promote call centers hosted by the United Way of Greater Greensboro and Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice in Winston-Salem.
The Wilmington call center is hosted by Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog.
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 2016 4ALL Statewide Service Day is led by Sharon Robertson and Ashley Bennington.
Please note that the phone numbers for this event should only be accessed during the 12-hour window in which N.C. attorneys are answering the phones, and that the statewide service day is a telephone-only program.
