A look at children in poverty in North Carolina

Durham attorney, Kevin Jones, is a Dad, husband and advocate of family rights.  He works tirelessly to ensure everyone he represents receives the care and attention they desire. As a public defender, Kevin had the opportunity to work with folks in less than desirable situations at times.

Children, at no fault of their own, tend to suffer the most.  We live in a generous state; however, take a look at these figures before you consider it a job well done.
