Ryan says it’s important for people to know these attorneys are not taking on cases, just offering legal advice. But he says there are plenty of organizations around the state that will take up a flood victim’s case.

“We can refer out cases to these civil legal aid groups that can provide extra legal advice and go beyond what someone on the hotline can do,” Ryan said.
