CBA updates website to assist attorneys, general public with pandemic, disaster response efforts

The Chattanooga Bar Association has added information to its website in an effort to help local attorneys and the general public access important legal information during the COVID-19 pandemic and while disaster response efforts continue in the wake of the Easter Sunday tornado.

Visitors to www.chattanoogabar.org can view Gov. Bill Lee’s 12-page plan for reopening businesses responsibly, access tornado relief resources such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency and United Way websites, find an attorney through the website’s lawyer Referral Service and learn more about COVID-19 through a link to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

The website also provides links to the websites of the local and state courts and a list of wellness websites.

“With people working from home, they are using our website more than ever to find attorneys,” says Lynda Hood, CBA executive director. “As we face this crisis, we hope this information helps the community.”
