Gerhard Letzing, Executive Director of the The Washington State Association for Justice, has put out a call for support for the firefighters and victims of the wildfires in Washington:
North Central Washington has been devastated by wildfires and three firefighters have died in the line of duty near Twsip. It is critically important that we provide resources to support the men and women working tirelessly on the front lines to fight the wildfires, provide emergency shelters as well as food.
Please stand with the communities and families in need and I urge you to do what you can to support relief efforts. Please go to the North Central Community Foundation website to make a donation.
WSAJ has also activated its pro bono Disaster Relief Team of volunteer lawyers to assistant communities in North Central Washington. Volunteer lawyers are now offering legal assistance to those affected by the 2015 wildfires in Washington State. Victims can consult with the attorneys, without charge, about insurance claims, property losses, government benefits, or other matters arising from the recent wildfires. No fees of any kind will be charged for legal questions.
Please see the list of current volunteer lawyers on the WSAJ site.
