Superstorm Sandy Legal Relief Efforts
Six months after Superstorm Sandy hit New York, many residents are now facing longer term questions: How do I get the insurance company to pay for repairs? What funding sources are available to restart my business?
Your help is critical. In the NYC Pro Bono Center, we've assembled training videos, manuals, and resources to help you prepare. Become a member today, and use your professional skills to help some fellow New Yorkers in need.
Use our new FEMA Appeals automated document template to prepare a response letter to a denial of benefits by FEMA.
Check out the recently recorded webinar,"Guide to Successful Resolution of Residential Claims Resulting from Superstorm Sandy" in the NYC Pro Bono Center Library.
Practice areas contain resources for legal professionals and law students. Join one of the New York or National practice areas listed on the left to gain access to a variety of resources specific to that area, including news, events, sample pleadings, training webcasts, available cases, and more. Membership in each practice area is separate.
