Attorney Rebecca L. Stevens featured for volunteer legal services in North Carolina
CARY, N.C. – Sept. 14, 2009 – Rebecca L. Stevens, managing partner of Stevens Law Firm, PLLC, was recognized on probono.net/nc for her volunteer legal work through Legal Aid of North Carolina (LANC). Stevens volunteers through the organization’s Private Attorney Involvement (PAI) program.
Stevens was recognized for her recent pro bono services, which helped a man and his family who were left homeless after the foreclosure of his home. Stevens’ charitable assistance enabled the man to access leftover foreclosure sale proceeds that he was unable to access without appropriate legal counsel.
This case was imperative and was the very nature of what our firm does,” said Stevens. “We deal with these types of issues all the time, and I was absolutely going to do this if I could help a man get off the streets and put a family back together.”
Stevens has volunteered with the LANC on an as-needed basis since 1995. The PAI program helps to ensure access to justice for low-income families, and its success is based on the pro bono services provided by private attorneys in N.C.

Stevens Law Firm, PLLC Provides Legal Insight Regarding Long Form Lien Waivers
CARY, N.C. (Sept. 9, 2009) – Rebecca L. Stevens, managing partner of Stevens Law Firm, PLLC, offers legal insight for North Carolina real estate brokers, buyers and sellers who are frequently facing the implications of the increasing requirement for long form lien waivers.
A long form lien waiver is the affidavit and agreement signed by any person, firm or corporation that has provided a service or goods that improved the real property being transferred. These services include, but are not limited to, plumbing, electrical, flooring, tile, roof, concrete, lumber and landscape. In the case of new construction, this means that the owner of the property, the general contractor and all sub-contractors must sign that they have been paid and will not file a “claim of lien” against the property. At times, this can require in excess of 30 people and can cause unexpected additional delays for closings.
The need for long form lien waivers, particularly for new construction, has increased with the nation’s rapidly changing economic state. In response, Stevens Law Firm, PLLC is providing educational sessions to assist listing and selling agents as they prepare and work to avoid problems, such as closing delays, which can arise as a result of incomplete lien waiver documents.
Educational sessions for realtor groups, builders or other parties who have an interest are available at no charge on a limited basis upon request. Inquiries and requests may be made by calling (919) 858-5111.CARY, N.C. (Sept. 9, 2009) – Rebecca L.
