The school explained, “Touro Law Center opened a center to provide referrals, assistance and legal advice for residents and small businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy. The Touro Law Center – Hurricane Emergency Assistance and Referral Team (TLC-HEART). The public can call the center at (631) 761-7198 and email email@example.com to receive assistance from disaster-relief trained students and attorneys who will match resident concerns with referrals to federal, state and local government agencies and private groups offering storm-related assistance. The telephone hotline will be answered live Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm and on Friday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. Voice mail messages can be left 24/7.”
The Center offers:
- Assistance in assessing eligibility and completing application forms for the wide range of emergency assistance available to storm victims, both individuals and small businesses (e.g., food stamps, government loans and grants);
- Referrals for free legal consultation and advice on storm-related legal issues (e.g., insurance, landlord-tenant, consumer complaints, unemployment);
- Assistance to members of the Touro community, including students and staff members, who are in need.
With so many people on Long Island still suffering from the effects of Hurricane Sandy, it is good to know that Touro, with the support of the Suffolk County Bar Association, is offering this service. Even though these particular matters fall outside our areas of practice, we were glad to offer support by sharing client services support material so they can prepare for 50-h hearings. Today, we sent a financial contribution to help their efforts as well.
