New ABA Information

The ABA is very concerned about assuring that legal assistance is available to victims of hurricane disasters in Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. Among our efforts, we have been working closely with the Louisiana Civil Justice Center (LCJC) to create a hotline that can provide needed information and services through pro bono volunteers. LCJC has long experience in providing disaster legal services to callers. Because there is such severe devastation on those islands, local lawyers will probably not be able to provide sufficient pro bono service to meet the growing need for legal help. Therefore:

  • Lawyers who are active members of the USVI or Puerto Rico bars are urged to sign up to accept referrals of pro bono cases from the LCJC.


  • Lawyers who are not licensed in USVI or Puerto Rico can also assist, by providing legal research or assistance with federal/administrative law questions.

The volunteer sign up form is online, in English and Spanish, here: ABA Disaster Legal Services Volunteer Attorney Intake Form
