Legal Services for Fire Survivors

NLSLA is here to help you with legal needs related to the Woolsey Fire. Our attorneys and professionals are available to advise and assist individuals with problems with FEMA, unemployment, welfare, food stamps, medical insurance, landlord-tenant problems, mobile home issues, and other civil legal needs.

NLSLA will also be coordinating private attorneys who can provide other free legal assistance including: insurance claims, business issues, and assistance with the small business administration loan process.

Call us at 1-800-870-0732 to get help.

You can also find us at the FEMA Disaster Recovery Centers, located at the Malibu Courthouse and the Hilton Foundation Building.
