Gabriela Ramirez-Lopez, a Junior at South Lenoir High School and Robert Simmons, a Senior at South Lenoir High School shadowed at White & Allen on Wednesday, October 9, 2013. Their day began with Attorney Ashley Fillippeli showing them how to research the General Statutes and speaking with them on preparing for law school. They next met with Attorney Jim Purnell who spoke with them concerning the importance of having a mentor and participating in internships. It was time for court and so they headed off to criminal court with Attorney Lee Percise. There they met Judge Les Turner, Judge Charles P. Gaylor, III and Judge Ebern T. Watson. Lastly they went to the Register of Deeds Office with Paralegal Alice Herring and learned about how to look up documents such as deeds and birth and death certificates. We hope Gabby and Robert enjoyed their busy day at White & Allen.
