At Lauren Richardson Law, PLLC, we hope that everyone stayed safe and experienced minimal to no damage during the hurricane. However, since Hurricane Irma affected almost the entire state of Florida, we are aware that many people were negatively impacted. Because of this, we are providing you with the Florida Bar Foundation's latest information regarding consumer hotlines and other sources for those seeking legal aid. Below is a list of sources provided by the Florida Bar that can help Floridians in the recovery process.
The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division established a Disaster Relief Hotline, 1-866-550-2929. They provide an online request for assistance form for individuals, who may not be able to afford legal representation in non-fee generating cases, to fill out to receive basic legal services.
Florida Free Legal Answers is a virtual civil legal advice clinic where Floridians have the opportunity to post questions relating to Hurricane Irma and receive guidance from lawyers.
The Florida Bar Foundation webpage provides information for Floridians who are seeking civil legal aid.
Florida Pro Bono Matters has an interactive website to help Floridians year-round.
