Both State and Federal governments have the statutory and regulatory authority to make arrangements for the provision of legal services to victims of disaster. Thus, upon declaration, either by the Governor alone, or by the Governor and the President, Colorado lawyers may be called upon to provide free emergency legal services.
Three possible times in which our Disaster Legal Assistance program may be initiated are:
- Colorado Office of Emergency Management – Emergencies Declared by the Governor
- Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) – Disasters Declared by the President
- Response to Non-Declared Emergencies
Colorado Flood Legal Relief is a legal services program sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the American Bar Association Young Lawyers Division Disaster Legal Services Program. The Colorado Joint Disaster Legal Services Task Force comprises the Colorado Bar Association, Colorado Legal Services, Colorado Trial Lawyers Association, Colorado Criminal Defense Bar, and several local bar associations.
