Anything free in today's economy is a good thing, especially pricey legal advice. Lawyers from across North Carolina participated in Free Service Day. People could call in and get free legal counseling. The event was intended to help people who ordinarily can not pay legal fees. Attorneys with different specialties were on hand to take calls. “The majority of the questions have been related to family law issues; child custody, going through a divorce, going through a separation and also some criminal law matters. Someone hasn't paid their taxes, someone hasn't paid their speeding ticket. Those kinds of things come up pretty regularly,” said Ryan Rhodenhiser. Wilmington was one of five cities across the state with a call center.
