Hurricane Harvey Recovery
Our thoughts are with our Texas colleagues and all of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Below is a sample of organizations offering attorneys opportunities to assist individuals and organizations pro bono during recovery, as well as opportunities for all to make donations.
Pro Bono Opportunities
State Bar of Texas
The Disaster Relief page on the State Bar of Texas's website includes a sign-up form that allows attorneys to designate whether or not they are licensed as a Texas attorney and would like to assist. They are currently working on getting an order from the Texas Supreme Court to have out-of-state attorneys be eligible to assist with disaster relief. That being said, they are collecting both out-of-state attorneys licensed in Texas AND out-of-state attorneys NOT licensed in Texas on this intake survey.
You can follow Pro Bono Texas for updates on remote trainings if you think you can ultimately help twitter.com/ProBonoTX.
If you are licensed in Texas, you can also answer questions on texas.freelegalanswers.org.
