Helping lawyers affected by Katrina

By September 13, 2005Uncategorized

Louisiana lawyers who have been affected by Katrina should visit the LSBA website and update their contact information as soon as possible.  One very promising development has been the creation of a website called, spearheaded by Ross Kodner and others in the Legal Tech arena.

Another great company that I recommend highly, from first hand experience, is Advanced Legal.  They are a nationwide company that specializes in Legal Technology.  They’re highly experienced in disaster recovery, which is how I’ve gotten to know them, but they also have experience in: project management, legal applications (use and integration), websites, training and workflow strategies.  Ask for Justin Bickler if you need someone to contact. Mobile: 503.459.1489 | Office: 503.227.5400.

Lastly, I was contacted by a group that does legal research and is offering their services for free (on a limited basis) to attorneys affected by Katrina.  Srishti Jha has started a legal research company with a lawyer who was formerly at Cravath.  Her company, JurixPrudent is based in New York but does its work through outsourcing with lawyers in India:

630 Fifth Avenue, Suite 3163
New York, NY 10111

I hope these resources are of benefit to some of the many Gulf-region attorneys who have been affected by Katrina.  If you have other sources that are beneficial feel fee to leave that information in the comments to this post.  Thanks.
