JMD and Family Law Attorney Haley White to Sponsor Open Streets 704 in Wilmore

September 12, 2019 (Charlotte, N.C.)—James, McElroy & Diehl, P.A. (JMD) is pleased to announce that the firm and Family Law Attorney and Wilmore neighborhood resident Haley White are sponsoring part of an Open Streets 704 event that includes Wilmore on Sunday, September 15, from 1:00-5:00pm.

Open Streets 704 is a series of Charlotte events that open a length of city streets for an afternoon just for people. According to Open Streets 704, “Taking cues from similar events around the country and the world, Open Streets 704 aims to build a better, healthier, connected community by encouraging Charlotte and Mecklenburg area residents to walk, bicycle, and experience the city together in a way that’s just not possible in a car.”

The route for Charlotte-Mecklenburg’s eighth Open Streets 704 event covers four (4) miles between West End and Dilworth – and includes Wilmore and other great spots in between, as well as activity zones that feature nature, arts, science, wellness, and family activities.

JMD’s Haley White focuses her practice on family law, including issues related to divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution, and domestic violence. Regularly handling challenging family law matters that have a lasting and significant impact, Haley guides clients in taking the best possible route for themselves and their families. Haley is currently a member of the North Carolina State Bar and the Young Affiliated Professionals of the Humane Society of Charlotte.

Haley graduated magna cum laude from Louisiana State University in Shreveport, with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. She received her Juris Doctor from Washington & Lee University. While in law school, Haley was on the Editorial Board for the Washington & Lee Journal of Civil Rights and Social Justice, in which she published an article, and she also received the award for Best Brief in the John W. Davis Moot Court Competition. During her final year in law school, Haley worked as an extern at the Office of the Commonwealth’s Attorney in Roanoke, Virginia.

Open Streets 704 is funded by a grant from the Knight Foundation, in partnership with Partners for Parks, Mecklenburg County Government, the City of Charlotte, Mecklenburg County Park & Recreation, the Mecklenburg County Public Health, Charlotte Department of Transportation, and the support of The Charlotte- Mecklenburg Police and Charlotte Fire departments.
