Our thoughts are with those dealing with the effects of Hurricane Harvey. Here are some ways you may be able to help:
- Donate to the Hurricane Harvey Legal Aid Fund established by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation.
- Volunteer through the State Bar of Texas’s Disaster Relief Resources page or the Houston Volunteer Lawyers Project’s Volunteer Portal. The Texas Supreme Court has issued an emergency order (PDF) that lets out-of-state lawyers in good standing practice for six months in Texas if the out-of-state lawyer is retained by a legal aid program, pro bono program or bar association that provides services to victims of Harvey. Lawyers who want to help must fill out a temporary registration form with the State Bar of Texas.
- Check DisasterLegalAid.org for developments in regions have been impacted by the hurricane.
