SOUTH FLORIDA ATTORNEYS TO OFFER FREE ASSISTANCE TO HURRICANE VICTIMS

SOUTH FLORIDA ATTORNEYS TO OFFER FREE ASSISTANCE TO HURRICANE VICTIMS
 MIAMI, Sept. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Bar Association/Young Lawyers Division, under a contract with the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), has agreed to staff various disaster assistance centers (DACs) established by FEMA in Dade and Broward counties.
 The volunteer lawyers will be available to answer on-the-spot legal questions from hurricane victims. All hurricane victims are eligible for this assistance, regardless of income.
 Due to the high percentage of attorneys in Dade County who themselves have suffered severe personal losses from the hurricane, there is a shortage of volunteers available to staff these centers.
 The Young Lawyers Division asks all lawyers in Dade, Broward, Monroe and Palm Beach counties, who can, to volunteer for this program as soon as possible.
 The first training and orientation sessions for volunteers will be held on Thursday, Sept. 3, 1992, at 6:30 p.m. at Courtroom 6-1 of the Dade County Courthouse at 73 West Flagler St., Miami, Fla. Volunteers who attend will receive a package of training material.
