Out-of-State Lawyers Can Provide Help to Hurricane Harvey Victims

September 6, 2017

Last week, the Texas Supreme Court issued an order allowing out-of-state lawyers to practice in Texas temporarily if they are displaced by Hurricane Harvey or volunteering to serve hurricane victims. Attorneys interested in helping should fill out a volunteer form with the Texas State Bar. The ABA Young Lawyers Division is running disaster legal aid hotlines for both Texas and Louisiana and their Harvey relief web page also has information on volunteer recruitment.

Saundra Brown of Lone Star Legal Aid, whose Houston office was destroyed last week, took part in an ABA podcast on how lawyers can help with disaster recovery.
