Supreme Court of Texas Clears Way for Assistance from Out-of-state Lawyers

Supreme Court of Texas Clears Way for Assistance from Out-of-state Lawyers

The Supreme Court of Texas entered an order to allow any attorney not licensed to practice in Texas, but licensed and in good standing in any other jurisdiction of the United States, to provide legal assistance to individuals and entities affected by Hurricane Harvey.  This should help in the effort to recruit volunteer attorneys to address the need for legal services by the mounting number of flood victims.  Lawyers may volunteer through programs supported by the State Bar of Texas and the Houston Bar Association.  The Louisiana State Bar Association is currently monitoring the need for any mobilization of volunteers in that state and encourages Louisiana attorneys to support efforts in Texas.  For a summary of information on national mobilization of legal relief efforts, visit the ABA Hurricane Harvey Relief resource page.
