This is the fourth year the North Carolina Bar Association has offered this event in Asheville, and the second year it has been offered in Hendersonville. Last year the event was very successful with nearly 100 people attending.
“We've had a great deal of success with these events in the past, and are looking forward to continuing that success with this year's events. We've got a wonderful group of volunteer attorneys lined up for both the Buncombe and Henderson County events. I encourage anyone who has a legal issue to stop by one of our locations.” says Stephen L. Cash, volunteer, organizer for Western North Carolina events and attorney at Roberts & Stevens Law Firm.
