ABA YLD Disaster Legal Services is there for #Harvey Survivors & Volunteers
 
 
 
 
Dear ABA Young Lawyers Division Members:

The past days have been filled with images and news about Hurricane Harvey and the Storm's devastating toll on southeastern Texas and Louisiana, along with calls for action. The ABA Young Lawyers Division is proud to count itself among those responding, in particular through its 
Disaster Legal Services(DLS) program, a long-standing joint project of the YLD, Legal Services Corporation (LSC) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Through the DLS program, we are able to work with local authorities and volunteer attorneys to provide immediate legal assistance to disaster survivors at no charge.

Since Friday, the YLD Disaster Legal Services team has been hard at work establishing a disaster legal services hotline for those in the impacted areas and coordinating with the State Bar of Texas, the Red Cross and other service providers to assist those in need. The Division has also launched a web page dedicated to 
Hurricane Harveyand to answer questions from our members about the DLS project and efforts in the region. We encourage you to visit the page to get updated information about the Storm, our efforts, and volunteer opportunities. 

In the coming days and weeks, the team will be in full swing, providing pro 
bonolegal assistance to the most vulnerable.  As you may imagine, it is often only after the water recedes that storm victims are able to take stock and begin navigating the complex legal issues they face, and will face for months–even years–to come. The YLD DLS project has proved to be an invaluable resource at such times. 

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those affected by the storm. The ABA YLD is here to serve.

Sincerely,

Dana M. Hrelic
ABA 2017-2018 YLD Chair

Andrew VanSingel
ABA YLD Disaster Legal Services Director

另外,佛罗里达州律师协会也发出了免费援助德州灾民的倡议书:
 

Dear Fellow Florida Bar Member:

 

Like you, we are very concerned about everyone recovering from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey in Texas and now in Louisiana. And, like you, we want to help those most in need of our help. The Florida Bar has been in touch with our counterparts in Texas, Louisiana, and other states, and with the ABA, who have shared with us specific ways we can help:

? If you are admitted to practice in Texas and/or Louisiana you can volunteer to answer legal questions on the Disaster Legal Services Hotlines in those states. More information on legal services for those affected by disasters is available from the National Disaster Legal Resource Center.


? As we have seen many times in Florida, legal aid is critical to those recovering from natural disasters. In addition to supporting organizations like the Salvation Army and American Red Cross, contributions may be made to the Hurricane Harvey Legal Aid Fundset up by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation and the Louisiana Hurricane Harvey Disaster Fund administered by the Louisiana Bar Foundation.

? The Texas Supreme Court issued an order Tuesday allowing out-of-state lawyers to practice in Texas temporarily if they are displaced by Hurricane Harvey or volunteering to serve hurricane victims. The order allows an attorney licensed and in good standing in another U.S. jurisdiction to practice in Texas for six months from the date of the order if: (a) the attorney is displaced from his or her home jurisdiction as a result of Hurricane Harvey and practices in Texas remotely as if located in his or her home jurisdiction, or (b) the attorney provides services to victims of Hurricane Harvey through a legal aid program, pro bono program, or bar association. Under the order, the attorney must register for temporary practice in Texas as soon as possible after arriving and agree to abide by Texas disciplinary rules. Read the full order here and access the Registration For Temporary Practice In Texas form (on pages three and four of the order). Additional information for Texans and State Bar of Texas members is posted at www.texasbar.com/disasters.Please note that a similar order has not been issued by the Louisiana Supreme Court.

? The Louisiana State Bar Association has activated a Disaster Response webpage to provide information on displacement resources, court closures, emergency declarations and assistance for flood victims. The website’s Disaster Response Message Board is helping to facilitate the giving and receiving of non-monetary donations like housing help, office equipment, commuting assistance and employment opportunities. Please visit the message board if you are willing to donate, or are in need of donations.

? To learn what other bars in the affected communities are doing, please use the links below. Information from bar associations in affected areas is being updated on an ongoing basis; the list below is based on information available to date and is not meant to be exhaustive. 

Austin Bar Association

Dallas Bar Association 

Houston Bar Association

San Antonio Bar Association

? The American Bar Association established this webpage: http://ambar.org/harvey to provide members with information to provide assistance to the victims of this disaster. Please check the page regularly as the ABA will continue to update it with important information about ways to support those in need. 

The Florida Bar is posting updated information to the Bar Blog on the homepage at www.floridabar.org, and we encourage you to follow our Facebook and Twitter feeds for updates as well. 

Thank you in advance to all of you who I know like me want to do everything you can to help. Together, I am confident that we can and we will make a positive difference. 

 

Very truly yours,
