Hurricane Harvey Legal Resources

This message originally appeared as an e-mail to CBA members from CBA President Karen DeMeola

Karen DeMeolaAs you know, Hurricane Harvey has had a devastating impact on the State of Texas. This hurricane is one of the worst storms the community has ever seen. Communities, families, schools, and businesses – including law firms – have been severely effected, and will continue to be for some time.

If you wish to help in some way, the State Bar of Texas has volunteer opportunities for out-of-state attorneys and the Supreme Court of Texas has created an amended emergency order. Additionally, the American Bar Association has also created a resource page for those wishing to assist with disaster relief.

There are many other ways to assist those in need. If you would like to donate money to the hurricane relief effort in Texas, you can give through the Texas Bar Foundation, or you can visit other reputable organizations, such as the American Red Cross, for additional resources on how to help.

Thank you for your support for those in times of hardship.
