A Message from the LSBA President Regarding Hurricane Laura

I want to extend my most sincere sympathy to the members of our legal community who have been impacted by the immense destruction of Hurricane Laura.

Thousands of Louisiana citizens have suffered through catastrophic storm damage, power and water outages, or been displaced from their homes entirely. The Louisiana State Bar Association is committed to serving the needs of our members and the public during this challenging time.

Hurricane Laura has brought devastation to many parishes and I strongly encourage all Bar members to come together and offer aid and support to those in need. The SOLACE Program is accepting assistance requests for non-monetary needs from those affected by the hurricane. Requests can be for gift cards, furniture, office space, temporary housing, food, etc. Requests for assistance will be circulated to the 20,000 plus SOLACE members. If you or someone you know needs assistance, forward your request to SOLACE at Please include an email address that protects the sender's identity. 

I offer my warmest thoughts and compassion to our members and all those who have been affected by this hurricane. The LSBA will create more resources as we continue to monitor the situation. I wish you all health, safety, and a speedy recovery.
