Alesha Brown, an attorney in the Charlotte office of Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog LLP, recently completed the 2018-2019 Lunch with a Lawyer Program. The program is sponsored by the Mecklenburg County Bar and offers 8th-grade students the chance to be mentored by a local attorney.

Through the program, attorneys meet with students monthly during lunch to help the students learn about the legal profession. The mentor/mentee pairs also meet at other times throughout the year. The 2018-2019 year concluded with a tour of the Mecklenburg County Courthouse, a mock trial and a luncheon.

Alesha has been involved in the program since January 2019.
