Inner Banks Legal Services

Caring for Eastern North Carolina by Providing Affordable Legal Services.


Our Charitable Mission

Inner Banks Legal Services is a non-profit organization located in Washington, North Carolina. Our firm provides legal services for people who make too much money to qualify for free legal services, but do not earn enough to pay traditional for-profit law firm prices. Our fees are based on your ability to pay, using your household income and family size to determine a fair and affordable price for legal representation.


Serving Our Community

Our staff is dedicated to serving Eastern North Carolina. We have two primary practice areas - Bankruptcy and Family Law. We help our clients with Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 bankruptcies. We also offer unbundled family law services. Need legal representation for something other than bankruptcy or family law? As we grow, we plan to add other areas of legal representation. For now, we have a list of other wonderful attorneys in our community, so contact us to see how we can serve you!
