Legal questions to be answered by volunteer attorneys

Have a legal question you need answered? The S.C. Bar Pro Bono Program can help! In observance of Celebrate Pro Bono Week 2013, the S.C. Bar Pro Bono Program is holding a special, statewide Ask-A-Lawyer event on Wednesday, Oct. 23.

From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., attorneys will be available online to answer the public’s legal questions via web chat. Visit during that time to get started.

In addition, a television phone bank will air on the WBTW News 13 (Myrtle Beach) evening news between 5 and 7 p.m. Watch the broadcast for the number to call. Attorney volunteers include William A. Bryan, Andrew M. Connor, Caitlin M. Epley, James T. Feldman, Bradley A. Floyd, Russell W. Hall III, Angela D. Harrison, Amy S. Lawrence, Justin M. Lovely, Daniel R. McCoy, John David Ray and Regina B. Ward..

The Ask-A-Lawyer program coordinates volunteer lawyers in an effort to assist the public with its legal questions and is made possible by the S.C. Bar Foundation.

The South Carolina Bar, which has a membership of more than 14,500 lawyers, is dedicated to advancing justice, professionalism and understanding of the law.
