Assist Survivors of the Southern California Fires 
Disaster Legal Services Volunteer Attorney Intake Form


Thank you for your interest in assisting fire survivors in Southern California. 

The State Bar of California is working with local bar associations, legal services providers, law schools, and pro bono partners to coordinate the legal response for survivors of the Southern California wildfires. Volunteers will likely be needed to help staff a legal hotline and resource table at Local Assistance Centers (LAC) or Disaster Recovery Centers (DRC) in the near future. Volunteers also will be needed to handle pro bono cases to assist fire survivors in the next 1-6 months. Online trainings and technical assistance are available. Malpractice insurance will also be provided by the local legal services provider for all pro bono work through the programs. Please complete and submit the sign up form. You will receive follow up information by email. If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Ngim at sharon.ngim@calbar.ca.gov or Elizabeth Hom at elizabeth.hom@calbar.ca.gov at the State Bar of California Office of Legal Services.
