Survivors of natural disasters face a wide array of overwhelming legal problems, all hitting them at once. “Do I have to pay the rent if my apartment is uninhabitable, or make car payments if the car is destroyed? FEMA denied my request for benefits and I need help appealing it. My insurance company keeps asking me for more documents.” These problems, and more, are legal problems and have legal answers. Be a part of the answer.
We offer training and mentoring for volunteer attorneys. Volunteer attorneys may help staff a hotline, a clinic, or a table at a centralized resource center for survivors, or may take on full-scope cases through a partner legal services provider.
When you sign up to volunteer you will receive regular emails with the latest training and volunteer opportunities.
