Hurricane Harvey Relief

Dear ACC Houston Members:

On behalf of the ACC Houston Board and Pro Bono Committee, we hope that you and your families are safe.  It would be an understatement to say that these last few days have been trying.  No words can describe the devastation and destruction that have besieged our great city, but we have also been encouraged by the spirit shown by fellow citizens - neighbor helping neighbor - that has always been a hallmark of our city and state.  When it comes to lending a helping hand to those in need, the Houston in-house legal community is no exception.
 
Many in our community are in need of legal services to assist with items related to Hurricane Harvey like dealing with landlord-tenant, insurance, FEMA filings, and consumer protection matters, etc.  Below are a few helpful links where you can use your unique legal skills to assist as and when you are able:

Very truly yours,

Chantel R. Jordan
