Disaster Legal Response Program
This program assisted victims of Superstorm Sandy with legal issues stemming from the storm; common issues included insurance matters, contractor disputes, FEMA recoupment, grant appeals, and Blue Acres real estate closings. PLEASE NOTE THAT AS OF 12/31/2017, THIS PROGRAM IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING NEW CASES.
After Superstorm Sandy, attorneys from McCarter & English created a comprehensive handbook intended as a reference guide to those affected by Sandy. It has since been adapted (by the New Jersey Statewide Disaster Legal Team) to apply to future disasters. The handbook is available for download here:
