Volunteer attorneys are offering free, disaster-related legal
assistance to individuals affected by Hurricanes Katrina and
Rita. The Young Lawyers Division of the Louisiana State Bar
Association, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA),
provides legal counseling and referrals to residents.

Each call is referred to a Louisiana-licensed attorney, who will
contact callers within 48 hours to discuss their needs. These
voluntary attorneys can advise callers regarding legal issues
related to the disaster. Many problems can be addressed just by
speaking with the attorney. The representation is at no charge
to the caller.

The attorneys can assist disaster victims with such issues as:

Advice on landlord/tenant matters.
Replacing wills, drafting powers of attorney and other legal
documents lost in the disaster.
Help with home repair contracts and contractors.
Insurance claims for doctor and hospital bills, loss of property,
loss of life, etc.
