Lone Star Legal Aid

Main Office:

Overview

Lone Star Legal Aid has expanded legal assistance to disaster-affected individuals in three federally disaster-declared Texas counties - Harris, Hays, and Van Zandt. According to Paul E. Furrh, Jr., CEO, Lone Star Legal Aid, "President Barack Obama's Federal Disaster Declaration allows LSLA attorneys and paralegals to access a greatly expanded pool of resources on behalf of our clients." The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) involvement allows Texans who have been hard-hit since May 4 by a series of devastating weather events to begin real and much-needed recovery with the assistance of federal funds. These funds will help replace lost and damaged personal property, homes, cars and trucks for residents in these disaster areas. In addition, some residents may qualify for federal funds to recover evacuation related expenses and expenses resulting from having to rent a place to live.
