Residents of Texas and Louisiana are suffering at the hands of Hurricane Harvey, and attorneys are needed to help assist victims of the disaster. Disaster response websites have been established by the State Bar of Texas, the Louisiana State Bar and the American Bar Association to provide attorneys the resources they need to support the relief effort, including providing legal services on behalf of legal aid providers in Texas, providing online legal services, and donating to the recovery efforts. Additionally, the Texas Supreme Court has issued an emergency order which permits out-of-state attorneys to practice in Texas for six months.
