Default Lawyers in Sandy’s Path Offer Free Help to Storm Victims

Lawyers in areas hard-hit by Sandy are offering free legal help to storm victims, even as some may need help to repair their own damaged offices.

Jennifer Maloney for The Wall Street Journal
A storm-damaged home in Belle Harbor, Queens, where volunteer lawyers plan to hold a free disaster assistance clinic for Sandy victims.

Bar associations across the tri-state area are setting up free legal clinics to help citizens affected by the storm. In New York, Connecticut and New Jersey, state bar groups are setting up hotlines to match lawyers with storm victims. On Friday, the New York City Bar Association hosted a training session to get volunteer attorneys up to speed on FEMA, insurance, food stamps and other issues storm victims are likely to encounter

Default Re: Lawyers in Sandy’s Path Offer Free Help to Storm Victims

The biggest law firms in the new york are recruiting attorneys to offer legal assistance to new yorkers whose lives and property were devastated by the storm-the second most destructive Atlantic hurricane after Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005.There are free advice sessions for the victims also who need emergency assistance to appeal to the decision.I think this is a great support by them.Thanks.
