New Jersey attorneys have stepped up to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy. NorthJersey.com reports that the New Jersey State Bar Association opened up a hotline today to give legal assistance for those dealing with the aftermath of the super storm. “As they have in other disasters, our volunteer attorneys are ready to help people whose lives have been forever altered by this storm,” State Bar Association President Kevin P. McCann said. In New York, the Court Families Assistance Fund has been set up in partnership with the Center for Court Innovation and the Fund for the City of New York, the New York Law Journal reports. The fund will help New York's court employees whose "homes, cars, possessions and way of life were swept away by Sandy." Donations can be made to the fund at the New York State Unified Court System’s website.
