VLJ contributed to a recent report on the challenges of the recovery process after Superstorm Sandy. The report, “The Long Road Home,” analyzed the results of a survey taken by over 500 Sandy survivors found that 22% of respondents were still out of their homes at the time of the survey; that 77% of respondents either did not have enough money to finish rebuilding their homes; and that more than 70% of respondents had developed new physical or mental health problems or a worsening of pre-existing health conditions since Sandy.
VLJ stands up for justice, and New Jersey’s legal community proved their commitment to ensuring that access to justice is available to all with their support of VLJ’s JUST ONE campaign, where attorneys can donate just one of their billable hours.
