This is the fifth year the North Carolina Bar Association has offered this event in Western North Carolina.  The last several years the event has been very successful with an overwhelming turnout.

“We are excited to again offer this free event to our local community.  This is a unique opportunity to provide advice and support to a large group of individuals with various legal needs who may not otherwise be able to meet with an attorney.  Anyone with questions about specific legal issues or the legal system in general is encouraged to stop by and take advantage of this program.  We will have a wonderful group of attorney volunteers who will be available to meet one-on-one and help answer questions,” says Shannan Barclay Tuorto, volunteer organizer for the Asheville event and attorney at Ingrid Friesen, P.A.
