Justice Community Disaster Response

The Access to Justice Community has activated its disaster relief plan. This is a combined effort of the LSBA Access to Justice Committee, the Legal Services Corporations, pro bono providers across the state, the LSBA Young Lawyers Division, and the Louisiana Civil Justice Center. The group continues to expand and we welcome the participation of all interested in helping to provide legal services for poor people affected by disasters.

Working with the ABA/YLD Disaster Legal Services Liaison the group has enacted several initiatives and is working to support and coordinate with others who are working for this same purpose. Information on these initiatives can be obtained by clicking on specific issue listed in the red bar to the left.

Disaster Response Hotline

The main initiative is the activation of the Disaster Response Hotline. This hotline provides referall information to those seeking disaster legal assistance. The hotline will provide legal referall information for individuals who reside in parishes affected by the disaster, including... Disaster legal advice will not be provided through the hotline.
