CARY — People who need legal information can get it for free on the phone from North Carolina lawyers who have volunteered to help.

The N.C. Bar Association sponsors Friday's event called 4ALL Statewide Service Day. The event began in 2008 and now includes hundreds of volunteers who provide free legal information to thousands of North Carolinians.

Volunteer attorneys will provide the advice from eight call centers from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Toll-free numbers will be provided throughout the day by the five television stations sponsoring the call centers: WLOS in Asheville, WBTV in Charlotte, WFMY in Greensboro, WRAL-TV in Raleigh and WNCT-TV in Greenville.
