First Responder Pro Bono—Emergency Opportunities to Help

 

Michigan Flood Disaster

Pro Bono attorneys are needed to help provide legal assistance to low-income flood victims in Midland, Isabella, Bay, and Gladwin counties.

Hurricane Harvey

Provide legal assistance to victims of Hurricane Harvey, even if you are not licensed to practice in Texas due to temporarily expanded practice rules.  Michigan attorneys can help by donating to the Texas Bar Foundation’s Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief Fund.

Hurricane Irma

Michigan attorneys can help disaster victims by donating to the Florida Bar Foundation’s Hurricane Legal Aid Fund. To date, Florida has not expanded practice rules.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

Several nonprofit legal services providers are holding DACA Renewal workshops.  For more information and available volunteer opportunities, contact the following organizations directly.
