4ALL Scheduled Friday, March 1
The North Carolina Bar Foundation (NCBF) will present the 12th annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day on Friday, March 1. Through this pro bono program, traditionally held on the first Friday in March, attorneys provide free legal information to citizens throughout the state from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
North Carolina attorneys volunteer to answer phones at six call centers across the state, providing answers to callers’ law-related questions. Each call center site is supported by a local television partner. The phone numbers included below also will be provided by the stations throughout the day and callers may access any of the call centers by phone – and only by phone.

“The North Carolina Bar Foundation is honored to provide this annual public service program,” said Jacqueline Grant of Asheville, president of the NCBF and the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA). “Since its inception in 2008, 4ALL has provided an opportunity for North Carolinians from all walks of life to speak with an attorney for free.
“4ALL also provides our members with an opportunity to step away from their daily duties and engage in thoughtful conversations with citizens about a wide array of legal topics.”

The 4ALL Statewide Service Day was first held in 2008 under the leadership of Janet Ward Black of Greensboro during her term as president of the NCBA and NCBF. Last year more than 500 attorney volunteers answered 9,000 calls.
The 4ALL Statewide Service Day is made possible through the generous support of donors to the North Carolina Bar Foundation Endowment and Annual Fund. Established in 1960 as the charitable arm of the NCBA, the Foundation’s mission is to unite the talent and generosity of our profession to be a power of greater good for the people of North Carolina.
