The One Buncombe Bar Program was created to assist Buncombe County attorneys in need.  Upon submitting your request, your request will be posted to the Buncombe Bar website, with identifying information removed. If a supporting attorney contacts the Bar Administrator and offers support, (i) the Bar Administrator will coordinate with the supporting attorney and the posting attorney to deliver funds/support; or (ii) the Bar Administrator will obtain the posting attorney’s permission to provide his/her contact information to the supporting attorney.  Support may include rent or other bills paid directly to the creditor; advice, guidance or mentorship; office or meeting space; or other assistance to help local attorneys during the coronavirus pandemic.

A request for financial assistance has been received from a Bar member: 

Having experienced difficulties with shared housing since the beginning of the pandemic, I am happy to be back in an atmosphere conducive to a home office and need one month’s support.  I was getting minimal unemployment but that stopped last month.  I do not have any new income or cases on the horizon, but I am actively applying for part-time work, as well as seeking out new clients for my small solo practice.
