The Houston Bar Foundation and Houston Volunteer Lawyers will hold four free legal clinics for people impacted by Hurricane Harvey. The clinics, which take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 18, mark the one-year anniversary of the storm and will provide one-on-one legal advice on related issues.
Volunteer attorneys from Houston law firms and corporate legal departments will provide advice on insurance, FEMA appeals, contractor abuse, mortgages, landlord/tenant issues, family law matters, replacing lost documents, probate, clear home ownership, and other legal issues.
Attendees who need continued legal representation must be Harris County residents and have a household income of no greater than 300 percent of the federal poverty guideline. No appointment is necessary.
“A year after Hurricane Harvey, some Houstonians are still suffering and dealing with legal challenges. The Houston Bar Foundation and Houston Volunteer Lawyers are putting on these clinics in hopes of providing needed assistance,” Houston Bar Foundation Chair Barrett Reasoner said in a press release. “We are fortunate to have received a grant from the Foundation of the American College of Trial Lawyers that helped make this possible.”
