Disaster Legal Services

Legal services are human services. Today and in the months and years to come, survivors will need lawyers and legal services to recover from these disasters.  Your donation helps increase pro bono legal representation and provide crucial resources needed to help survivors rebuild their lives, now and in the future. Such efforts include:

*The ABA Young Lawyers Division’s Disaster Legal Services Program, in partnership with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), is constantly on the ground delivering free legal assistance.  Since September 2007 the ABA YLD has responded to 178 declared disasters in 44 states and 4 U.S. territories.

*ABA Free Legal Answers is a virual online legal clinic that connects disaster survivors with pro bono attorneys who will answer their civil legal questions. 

 *ABA Flood Proof, a mobile app developed by the ABA Center for Innovation, helps flood victims gather information needed to establish home ownership and complete disaster relief applications.

Matching Gifts
If your company offers a matching gift program, you have the opportunity to double your contribution. Your donation will be recognized in our materials at the combined value of your gift and that of your company’s matching contribution.

The public service and educational programs of the American Bar Association receive funding through the ABA Fund for Justice and Education (FJE).  The FJE was created to accept gifts and grants to support the ABA’s public service work.  The FJE qualifies as an exempt fund under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, and all contributions to the FJE are tax deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
