The New Jersey Law Journal has featured Buchanan in a recent article about pro bono legal services that have been provided to victims of Hurricane Sandy. A group of attorneys from several Buchanan offices, spearheaded by Associate Tanya D. Bosi and Managing Shareholder Stuart P. Slotnick of the New York office, have been assisting these victims with questions about FEMA applications and appeals, Small Business Administration assistance, unemployment disaster benefits and food stamps.
On November 14, approximately a dozen attorneys set up a pop-up legal clinic in Moonachie, the city in which Bosi grew up. On December 4, a second clinic was held in Toms River.
As Bosi explained, the attorneys have been cognizant of the risk of conflicts with insurer clients. Therefore, they are not reading or interpreting policies but instead are advising people to contact their carriers and make claims.
The article also explained that the people who are seeking help are not becoming clients of the firm or signing engagement letters but that some of them have been referred to a State Bar Association hotline, which is matching people with volunteer counsel.
