Those seeking legal assistance should call 1(800)829-4128 - a special toll-free number to receive requests for free legal help.

Volunteer lawyers will help storm survivors with the following:

  • Assistance with medical and property insurance claims
  • Counseling on landlord-tenant and real estate property and mortgage questions
  • Help with home repair contracts and contractors
  • Replacement of wills and other important legal documents lost or destroyed in the disaster
  • Consumer protections such as price-gouging and avoiding scams in the rebuilding process

All calls are screened and then referred to volunteer lawyers who agree to offer a telephone consultation, providing free legal advice for disaster-related problems. Callers who need representation in court or who have issues requiring fee-generating services will be referred to the appropriate services.
