A toll-free legal assistance hotline is now available to support survivors of recent tornadoes in Middle Tennessee. Low-income individuals facing legal issues as a result of the tornadoes may call 1-844-HELP4TN (1-844-435-7486). Callers should identify that they are seeking tornado-related legal assistance, state their county of residence, and provide a phone number where they can be reached by an attorney. Survivors also can ask legal questions through the Tennessee Free Legal Answers online service, and get information about their rights, available resources, and a list of upcoming legal clinics at www.HELP4TN.org. The toll-free hotline is a partnership between the Tennessee Bar Association, Tennessee Alliance for Legal Services, American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, Nashville Bar Association, Napier-Looby Bar Association, Upper Cumberland Young Lawyers Association, 15th Judicial District Bar Association, Legal Aid of Middle Tennessee & the Cumberlands and Volunteer Lawyers & Professionals for the Arts. Read more in this press release.

Volunteers are needed to provide legal information, advice, and representation to those affected by the recent storms. Attorneys interested in volunteering should complete this online form.
