Legal Assistance for Those Affected by Superstorm Sandy
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, the New York State Bar Association has been working with local bar associations throughout the affected area to coordinate relief efforts. The Bar Association held a free continuing legal education program focusing on disaster recovery issues, and a webcast of that event and the educational materials that accompanied it are available online at www.nysba.org/superstormsandyfreeclelink. Information about these and other storm relief efforts and recovery resources is available at www.nysba.org/sandy.
In addition, the Bar Association has created a toll-free helpline specifically for storm-related legal questions: 1-800-699-5636. Those who have a legal dispute related to the storm are encouraged to call for assitance.
