Are you a Puna resident whose home was damaged during Hurricane Iselle? Or is the lava flow headed your way and you’re unsure of what legal steps to take?

Disaster Relief Clinics will be held at both Kea’au High School and Mt. View Gym on Saturday, Sept. 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Attorneys will provide free legal help to Puna residents who have been affected by Hurricane Iselle or who are preparing for the current lava flow.

Get your questions answered about tree damage, insurance claims, and renter’s rights, as well as other legal issues related to storm damage and the lave flow.

Immediately following Hurricane Iselle, assistance was provided through the State’s Disaster Relief Assistance Centers and through a hotline that was set up by the Hawai’i State Bar Association. Volunteer attorneys have continuously provided support by offering free legal help at Disaster Relief Clinics.

These clinics are made possible by the Hawai’i State Bar Association, Hawai’i County Bar Association, West Hawai’i Bar Association, Senior Counsel Division, and the Legal Aid Society of Hawai’i.

For additional information regarding the Disaster Relief Clinics, contact Christopher Schlueter at (808) 557-5173 or Charlene Iboshi at (808) 895-7535
