Disaster Relief Legal Resources

Disaster Relief

The American Bar Association Committee on Disaster Response and Preparedness has posted resources for disaster relief on their website at, ABA's Disaster Relief.  The website includes links to FEMA resources, insurance and tax information as well as contact information for legal assistants from the Texas Bar Association and the Florida Bar Association.  This guide also includes information on how to volunteer and donate to the Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma Relief funds. 

The Wisconsin Bar Association also provides resources for Wisconsin Lawyers who would like to volunteer to help with disaster relief, see, Hurricane Harvey: Court Order Allows Wisconsin Lawyers to Help in Texas.
