New site offers tech, management help to Katrina lawyers

A Web site launched Friday, Help Katrina Lawyers, aims to pull together volunteers and resources to help Gulf Coast law firms with issues relating to legal technology, practice management and disaster/data recovery. Spearheaded by Ross Kodner at Microlaw and Dale Tincher and his staff at Consultwebs, the site came about through the efforts of what sounds to be a small army of volunteers from the ranks of lawyers, legal vendors, consultants and others. The site lists volunteers willing to offer their assistance and provides a form for others to volunteer. “The point,” said Kodner, “is to marshall resources tapping our legal technology, law practice management and disaster/data recovery skills so Katrina-affected lawyers can find this information on one consolidated site.”
