Volunteers Needed to Provide Legal Assistance to Tornado Victims
Volunteers are needed to provide legal information, advice and representation to those affected by the recent Middle Tennessee tornado. Attorneys interested in volunteering to assist those affected by Monday’s tornado should complete this form: Volunteer for Tennessee Disaster Legal Response.
Pro bono opportunities include in-person legal clinics, answering questions posted to TN Free Legal Answers and taking individual cases. In addition to legal clinics and community education events, it is anticipated that there will be a great need to refer individual cases for representation. LAS recently launched its Pro Bono Matters website, which allows attorneys to look through a list of brief case descriptions and get more information or volunteer for individual cases. WPLN has a list of upcoming clinics and more.
Among the groups partnering to respond to the disaster are the Tennessee Bar Association, Nashville and Napier-Looby Bar Associations, Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services (TALS), Legal Aid Society of Middle Tennessee & the Cumberlands (LAS), Tennessee Fair Housing Counsel, American Bar Association and others.
