Our Katrina Donors
“We are trying to overcome a devastation of biblical proportions. The help we’ve received from volunteer lawyers, law students, and others has lifted our spirits and let us know we are not alone in this battle.” -- Mark Moreau, Co-Executive Director of Southeast Louisiana Legal Services at the time of Hurricane Katrina
In the immediate aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Southeast Louisiana Legal Services (then also known as the New Orleans Legal Assistance Corporation or NOLAC) received significant donations of time, talent, and financial support from law firms, bar associations, law schools, foundations, and other organizations. We are eternally grateful for their help in a time of unprecedented need for our clients. We would like to acknowledge them below. Please accept our apologies for any omissions.
