Nearly 400 North Carolina-licensed attorneys will answer calls from the Triangle and across the state as part of the 17th Annual 4ALL Statewide Service Day.

  • Employment
  • Estate Planning
  • Family Law Issues
  • Foreclosure or Eviction
  • Education Law
  • Personal Injury

  • Medical Issues

Prepare to talk to a lawyer

There are a few things to know and prepare for before you speak to a lawyer:

  • Have a way to take notes during the call. That can be pen and paper, on your phone, tablet or computer. You will want to write down resources, phone numbers and next steps.
  • Have a concise timeline of what happened, when and who is involved. Be able to describe your concern in detail, including names, dates and places.
  • Be ready to explain what you’ve already done to resolve your concern or issue.
  • Know what you want or need to happen with your case.

For those who were not able to call in, there are other options for free or low-cost legal help.
