A toll-free legal aid hotline is now available to survivors of Georgia's recently declared disaster areas in Berrien, Crisp, Cook, Dougherty, Thomas, Turner, Wilcox and Worth counties. The service, which allows callers to request the assistance of a lawyer to aid in disaster related matters, is a partnership between the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, the State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division, Georgia Legal Services Program and Atlanta Legal Aid Society.
