STEEL HECTOR & DAVIS EXTENDS FREE STORM-RELATED LEGAL SERVICES FOR SIX MORE MONTHS AT HOMESTEAD HURRICANE RELIEF CENTER

 MIAMI, Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- The Florida law firm of Steel Hector & Davis will continue offering free legal services at the Homestead Disaster Application Center for at least six more months due to the persisting maze of housing and other legal problems confronting storm victims.
 "Thousands of storm victims are still confronted by many crises that require legal assistance," said Joseph P. Klock Jr., the firm's chairman and chief executive. "We are committed to helping our South Dade neighbors rebuild their lives and will keep the service running at least through May of 1993."
 Steel Hector attorneys have handled more than 300 legal matters since opening in early September, providing more than $650,000 worth of free legal assistance. The Hurricane Disaster Application Center is staffed by two lawyers and two additional full time personnel, including a bilingual secretary. It also is equipped with computers, a fax machine, copy machine and typewriters, supplied by Steel Hector.
 A great majority of the matters have involved housing, such as tenant-landlord disputes, said Janet Munn, one of the Steel Hector & Davis partners responsible for running the center. "Despite the passage of nearly five months since Andrew devastated South Dade, many people still are living in conditions no better than the day after the storm. With proper legal assistance, especially if they act quickly when a problem arises, many storm victims can resolve some of their most troubling dilemmas."
 Munn credits Steel Hector & Davis partner Bruce Russell with the center's success, particularly in matters such a protecting resident's rights in eviction cases. "Bruce has more than 20 years experience in real estate law and he has been in the emergency office every day since it opened," she said.
 For more information, residents may visit the center at 950 N. Krome Ave. in Homestead, or call 305-242-1111.
