We are proud to join with ABA President-Elect Bob Carlson to encourage you to plan and participate in events focused on disaster resiliency as part of the 2018 National Celebration of Pro Bono.

Disaster survivors face countless legal issues—from insurance disputes to FEMA appeals, landlord-tenant disputes, consumer fraud, health and education issues, and so much more. After Hurricane Harvey, LSLA was fortunate to have pro bono attorneys volunteer to help with cases to assist survivors.

Moreover, even before a disaster strikes, communities need legal assistance with disaster preparedness through business continuity planning, securing title documents, meeting insurance needs, and other critical assistance.

This year, LSLA supports Pro Bono Week by providing a disaster resilience CLE and two Will-A-Thon clinics. See our upcoming events for more information.
