As Texas recovers from Hurricane Harvey, lawyers across the country are mobilizing to help.
Here are some resources if you want to provide legal assistance:
- The Texas Equal Access to Justice Foundation has set up a fund to support legal services in Texas in the wake of the storm.
- Lawyers admitted to practice in Texas can look here, here and here for information about volunteering.
- Out of state attorneys should reach out to Scott Lachman with the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division. Legal hotlines are already set up in Texas (800 504-7030) and Louisiana (800 310-7029) to provide legal advice. Additionally, volunteer lawyers throughout the country can answer legal questions via the internet through Texas.FreeLegalAnswers.
- Finally, the ABA has additional information on how to help here.
