The YLD Disaster Relief Committee recently updated the group’s award-winning Disaster Assistance Manual, which provides information for lawyers who volunteer to help disaster victims.

The manual guides attorneys through common issues that arise following a disaster, including replacing lost documents, dealing with landlord tenant issues, working with insurance companies and regaining access to federal and state benefits after being displaced.

The manual also includes a directory of all court clerk, county clerk, register of deed, health department, human service, Social Security, immigration and legal aid offices in the state. Learn more here.

Special thanks goes to this year's Disaster Committee Chair Caitlyn Elam with Lewis Thomason in Knoxville and committee members Matt Potempa with Martin Heller Potempa & Sheppard and Mary Beth Haltom with Lewis Thomason, both in Nashville.
