Hurricane Help with Online Pro Bono

Once again, VBA President Mike Kennedy brings us the latest information on how to help hurricane victims.  In his blog, Mike reminds us of Vermont's Free Legal Answers program (vtfreelegalanswers.org) and how attorneys can answer legal questions online to help fulfill their pro bono aspirations.  This week, the Texas Supreme Court issued an order allowing attorneys from outside of Texas to provide limited legal services to victims and in response, the ABA Free Legal Answers program modified the Texas module to allow out-of-state attorneys to answer Harvey-related questions.  With Irma on its way, Florida's site will likely be opened up in a similar fashion.  Click HERE for Mike's blog with the links to Vermont's Free Legal Answers program and the Texas program.
