Free post-storm legal help hotline

The New Jersey State Bar Association, the American Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division and the Federal Emergency Management Agency have teamed up to provide help to residents. In the aftermath of Sandy, residents who cannot afford to pay an attorney can call the help line to request free legal assistance at 888-541-1900.

The hotline is open to residents who need legal help related to the disaster. Assistance will be available in connection with insurance-related claims, FEMA appeals, landlord-tenant matters and creditor-debtor matters. Callers should state that they are seeking legal assistance related to Hurricane Sandy. The hotline will be staffed during normal business hours, but messages can be left at any time.
