NEW YORK STATE UNIFIED COURT SYSTEM CREATES LEGAL “TASK FORCE” TO ASSIST VICTIMS OF HURRICANE HARVEY

The New York State Unified Court System recently announced the creation and mobilization of a “Volunteer Task Force” of New York based attorneys and court system employees to assist the victims of Hurricane Harvey, and aid in their recovery efforts.

The Texas Supreme Court has issued an emergency order that allows out of state attorneys to provide assistance to storm victims through Legal Aid, Pro Bono, and Bar Association programs. The goal is to provide affected Texans free assistance with filing insurance claims, applying for FEMA benefits, satisfying mortgage obligations, and many other pressing legal issues.
