Kelley Fore

Attorney, Unemployment Insurance COVID-19 Response Project, Consumer Protection Program

Kelley Fore is a staff attorney at Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy working on the Consumer Protection Program’s Unemployment Insurance COVID-19 Insurance Project.

Before joining Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy, Fore worked in the public sector for the State of North Carolina as a purchasing agent and administrative assistant.  Fore now advises clients out of work due to coronavirus on their eligibility status for unemployment insurance benefits with the North Carolina Division of Employment Security.

Fore earned her B.A. in Sociology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and her degree in law from the University of Michigan Law School.

“I have a passion for and track record of immersing myself in challenging work that makes an impact in my community. In law school, I served homeless populations and represented three survivors of human trafficking. 

I am excited to be serving my community by working with the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy to provide high quality legal services for those who have been financially impacted by the coronavirus pandemic.  It has been a dream of mine to provide direct services for vulnerable populations and I could not be any happier than to work alongside other like-minded people at an organization like Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy. 

Mr. Rogers once said, ‘When I was a boy and I would see scary things on the news, my mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.’  As we are facing the coronavirus pandemic, I am enthusiastic to now be a helper.”
