As Hurricane Florence affects North Carolina, Forrest Firm attorney Lyle Gravatt volunteered to assist the North Carolina Bar Association Young Lawyers Division with its efforts to coordinate disaster legal services in the state. The NC Disaster Recovery Guide is part of that effort and the Forrest Firm is glad to be able to share it with you.
The loss of personal documents is one of many losses that results from disasters. These documents are often essential to receiving state and federal disaster aid, and they can also be critical when processing insurance claims.

The Recovery Guide is one tool in your disaster recovery toolbox, and the guide will continue to be improved upon in the coming days. For other resources for the public, please check out the North Carolina Bar Association’s site at https://www.ncbar.org.
