By BRIAN ELSTON

Thank you for everyone that suggested so many amazing causes to support. To follow up on our Spirit of Giving post, we told the community that this year, we wanted to do something different. Instead of cards and calendars, we’d like to give back to a local worthy cause. We asked for everyone’s input and received great feedback.

This year, we’ve made donations to 10 non-profits and it felt good to be part of the change we wish to see in the world.

I did want to highlight two causes in particular.

Western North Carolina Area of Narcotics Anonymous

Holidays can be tough, and for those with addiction issues, dealing with family, stress, money for presents, it can be even tougher. Now, add on to the stress that you can’t meet with your support group because of the plague, it is even tougher. For those that know me, my brother Jeff passed away around this time last year due to addiction. By all accounts, his NA group meant so much to him, and him to them. At his funeral, they shared memorable stories of his wonderful sense of humor, often heard laughter, and his constant willingness to help others either by helping them with their cars or just sharing his struggles and faith. Addiction, anxiety, depression, and stuff happens. Everyone deals with it in some sort of fashion, and it is okay to reach out to a brother or sister to share in the struggle. Check out Western North Carolina Area of Narcotics Anonymous if you just need a minute.

 

Live Free 999

Along those same lines, Live Free 999 supports young people in their battles with addiction, anxiety and depression. If you haven’t heard, check out Wishing Well by Juice Wrld. Some say, (and this person will know who said this when they read it), it is the greatest song ever written.

 

Here is the full list of charities we donated to

Please check them out and consider offering donations to one or more of these worthy causes.

lets give to local charities

Each year around this time, my firm sends out Christmas Cards and calendars to clients and contacts. This year is different, which I know is an understatement. It just seems a bit hollow this year sending out cards wishing everyone a Merry Christmas when I know that 2020 has been very hard. So, this year, we want to do something different. Instead of cards and calendars, we’d like to give back to a local worthy cause. If anyone has any suggestions, please share below and we’ll do our best to help out this year.

Let Us Know What You Think

We would love the communities feedback in finding ways to give back and help out this year. Please send us an email or click on the Social Media posts below to add comments. We look forward to your suggestions!

We received a lot of great feedback and made our charity donation choices for this Holiday Season. Click here for information and links.

Brian Elston Law is working with the Asheville Tennis Association to provide free tennis kits to support children and their family that may not have access to tennis gear.

The tennis kits consist of a 10-foot movable net, four rackets, and three tennis balls. In addition to using the kits for these free clinics, the ATA also plans to give 75 of them away to families in under-served areas who have limited-to-no access to courts.

Recently, ATA President Jeff Joyce spoke to WLOS about the program:

“These under-served populations in the housing projects and other low-income areas don’t have that same advantage. Therefore, we’re taking it to them, which is what we should be doing.”

The kits were donated by the Brian Elston Law, and the ATA has been communicating with various non-profits and community organizations to identify families to receive them. The clinic at the Grant Center was the seventh of the summer so far.

If you’re looking for more information about this or other Asheville Tennis Association projects, please visit their website or email them at [email protected]

COVID-19 INFORMATION

By BRIAN ELSTON

Today, Buncombe County Government issued a “Stay Home – Stay Safe” order. A copy of the order can be found here.

The order provides that “Exceptional Businesses” may remain open, and the order defines those businesses. All business may maintain “minimum basic operations.”

Brian Elston Law was designed to be there for our clients, no matter the circumstances. As the founder of the firm, I am grateful to share that we are still available even during times of crisis. Our firm has systems set up where operations can continue, and that our primary goal of being there for clients is being met.

“At their best, lawyers assure the availability of legal services to all, regardless of ability to pay, and as leaders of their communities, states, and nation, lawyers use their education and experience to improve society.”

-Preamble to the NC Rules of Professional Conduct”

We will get through this time together, and we are here to do our part.

If you have a pending legal matter, and need assistance give us a call. Examples of pending legal matters that we handle are:

  • Should I apply for unemployment if I am receiving workers’ comp benefits?
  • How will this crisis affect my workers’ comp. benefits?
  • How will COVID-19 affect my motor vehicle accident claim?
  • What happens if I do not receive my workers’ comp check?
  • Can I still count lost wages in my personal injury claim during this time?
  • and others…..

Feel free to contact us if you have any questions. We are there for you.
