Hurricane Harvey Emergency Order Permits Out-of-State Lawyers to Practice in TX TemporarilyThe Supreme Court of Texas entered an order to allow any attorney not licensed to practice in Texas, but licensed and in good standing in any other jurisdiction of the United States, to provide legal assistance to individuals and entities affected by Hurricane Harvey.  This should help in the effort to recruit volunteer attorneys to address the need for legal services by the mounting number of flood victims.  Lawyers may volunteer through programs supported by the State Bar of Texas and the Houston Bar Association.  For a summary of information on national mobilization of legal relief efforts, visit the ABA Hurricane Harvey Relief resource page.
