The Missouri Association of Trial Attorneys has continued its Emergency Response program in conjunction with the American Red Cross, counting on volunteers from member firms like Langdon & Emison. The latest chapter in the disaster relief program has been helping victims from communities affected by recent tornadoes, like Oak Grove, Mo., and much of Boone County. Langdon & Emison attorney Brennan Delaney was one of the volunteer lawyers onhand in this most recent meeting, following the early March severe weather.
Other examples of MATA disaster relief programs include severe flooding and other natural disasters. In these instances, MATA members gather in affected communities and offer free legal advice, and also provide volunteer phone bank for people to call in for help. MATA volunteer members regularly assist citizens in how they can navigate landlord-tenant issues and other legal problems that they might not be used to dealing with. Since establishing this program with the American Red Cross, other state trial lawyer associations have implemented similar programs. Langdon & Emison remains a proud sponsor of MATA volunteer programs and community service initiatives.
