STATE BAR ASSOCIATION HOSTS WEBCAST FOR 2,000
ATTORNEYS ON HOW TO ASSIST SUPERSTORM SANDY VICTIMS
More than 2,000 people – including attorneys from 28 states and
three other countries – participated in a webcast for lawyers
seeking to provide legal assistance to victims of Superstorm Sandy.
The three-hour program – webcast from the State Bar Center in
Albany on November 15 – featured prominent attorneys with
expertise in the fields of insurance, business, landlord-tenant issues
and related legal matters, as well as representatives from the Federal
Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Red Cross, Coast Guard and other
“We encourage the attorneys who viewed the webcast to work with
local bar associations, legal services providers and the State
Bar’s hotline to help New Yorkers affected by the storm who need
legal services,” said State Bar President Seymour W. James, Jr.
(The Legal Aid Society in New York City).
