Ask-A-Lawyer Day Set Saturday, Feb. 6

Ask-A-Lawyer Day Set Saturday, Feb. 6

The Young Lawyers Division of the North Carolina Bar Association is pleased to provide free legal advice to citizens through the annual Ask-A-Lawyer Day.

Ask-A-Lawyer Day 2016 will take place Saturday, Feb. 6, at 10 locations across the state. This is a public service event at which volunteer attorneys provide free legal advice to North Carolina citizens. No business relationship may be established between the volunteer attorneys and the citizens. It’s all completely free.

Attorneys will be on hand to answer questions in the following cities and towns: Asheville, Burlington, Burnsville, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Durham, Greensboro, Raleigh, Wilmington and Winston-Salem.

To avoid confusion, please note that this event is different than the NCBA’s 4ALL Statewide Service Day, which is conducted entirely by phone. That event is conducted annually on the first Friday in March and will be held this year on March 4.

Ask-A-Lawyer Day is coordinated by the YLD’s Civic Education and Community Relations Committee, which is chaired by Andrew R. Jones of Rountree Losee LLP in Wilmington.
