Several Ward and Smith attorneys are volunteering their time to provide legal information to North Carolina residents for free this week. The effort is part of the North Carolina Bar Association's 11th annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day. All-day on March 2, lawyers will be stationed at call centers around the state answering questions and providing referral resources to callers who otherwise would not have access to an attorney.
Paralegal Stephanie Crosby is one of the site chairs for the Greenville call center, and attorney Zac Lamb is one of the site chairs for the Asheville call center. Ward and Smith attorneys who plan to volunteer their time are:
Peter von Stein
David Ward, Jr.
The call centers are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., except for Wilmington. The Wilmington call center will be open from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m on Friday. The call is toll-free. Here are the numbers to call:
