New York State Bar Association:
Please Volunteer for Pro Bono Efforts to Assist Hurricane Victims
The New York State Bar’s Lawyer Referral and Information Service is recruiting attorneys that can provide free telephone consultations to individuals affected by Hurricane Sandy. There is need for attorneys with insurance, landlord/tenant, co-op and condo, or FEMA appeals experience, as well as those who can handle general practice matters.
We encourage attorneys outside the NYC area to volunteer. The program is set-up to assist victims via phone consultation.
Please respond as soon as possible if you can help hurricane victims in need.
Go to: www.nysba.org/DisasterVolunteerSandy to fill out your volunteer form.
