About JI Buncombe County
Judicial District: 28
Facebook   Twitter
In February 2017, Buncombe County joined the growing list of JI branch locations. One of the special programs being offered by JI Buncombe is a newly launched Veteranís Treatment Court focusing on the rehabilitation of former service men and women. We are proud to now have such an important and respected offering under the JI banner. JI is also appreciative of the Buncombe County thought leaders who brought it to fruition: Judge Marvin Pope, Dr. Eric Howard and Mr. Allan Singer.
Points of Contact for Veterans Treatment Court:
Dr. Eric D. Howard, or 980-222-1078.
