There have been lots of postings about Hurricane Katrina and the absolute devastation that is has wrought throughout the Southeast. I do not want to really add anything about the political blame game or anything else. I do, however, want to point out that the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers has set up a relief fund particularly for attorneys in this situation.
I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose all of my files, my evidence, my work. Louisiana has such a horrible record regarding criminal defense issues anyway that I cannot imagine this helping the situation any. Anyway, this particular charity is geared toward attorneys in general, criminal defense attorneys in particular.
