Attorneys on call

Do you have a legal question? WRAL is Here to Help with Attorneys on Call.

On Friday, March 7, more than 200 local lawyers will be live in WRAL's studio, waiting to take your calls and offer free legal information about topics including family, employment, housing and debt issues.


CALL 800-424-9725 or 919-744-3861.

Spanish-speaking lawyers will be available at 855-455-4255.

    The article says this is happening on March 7th, might have something to do with why the calls are not working today, March 6th.

    We always have access to any numbers used by WRAL and other fundraising entities when it relates to COLLECTIONS for diseases, social causes, etc.. However, we have been trying the listed Lawyer NUMBER all day long, like our colleagues stated below, but have been UNSUCCESSFUL! Please share any suggestions that you may have that will allow us to take advantage of personal helplines. We are confident that whatever procedures you use for collections will ensure successful results for personal helplines!

    Thank you,

    Please do not call the State Bar. The State Bar is different than the Bar Association, who is sponsoring this call center. The State Bar will not and does not answer legal questions or give legal advice. Do not waste your time.

    PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE NC STATE BAR! The State Bar is completely different than that Bar Association. The State Bar WILL NOT AND DOES NOT give legal advice AT ALL. DO NOT waste your time.
