GREENSBORO, N.C.—Non-U.S. citizens now are facing a new wave of uncertainty, as the Trump Administration and various federal agencies are ramping up efforts to deport undocumented immigrants. The North Carolina Justice Center wants to help immigrants complete Powers of Attorney documents to give them some reassurance that their affairs will be managed if they are deported. But to do so, the Center needs assistance from volunteer attorneys.
So Womble Carlyle’s Greg Chabon, Jamie Stone, Jill White and JD Wooten stepped up to help.
On Saturday, April 1, the four Greensboro attorneys volunteered at the N.C. Justice Center’s Pro Bono Clinic. Chabon, Stone, White and Wooten worked with immigrant clients to create plans so that their families, finances and legal rights will be protected in their absence. Then, they helped the clients complete the various Powers of Attorney forms, with the help of Spanish-language interpreters.
Greg Chabon provides counsel and advice to predominately privately-held businesses on a variety of transactional, corporate and commercial matters in supply chain management, healthcare transactions (working with the Womble Carlyle’s Healthcare Practice Group), and mergers/acquisitions. With his business and engineering background, his practice is focused on providing creative and efficient real-world solutions to clients’ business issues and opportunities
Jamie Stone counsels clients in general business matters, including corporate and commercial transactions and corporate finance.

JD Wooten is a member of the firm’s Intellectual Property Group where he assists clients in securing and protecting their creative rights in patent, trademark, and copyright matters with a focus on civil litigation and other forms of IP enforcement. Before law school, Wooten served in the U.S. Air Force as a defense acquisitions program manager and engineer.
