Been asked to share this from NOVO Law Firm PC:

My heart is breaking as I look at photos of the damage from Hurricane Sandy – water in the streets, electrical fires, Tatiana’s fallen façade, flooded basements and disabled vehicles – so many dreams are in shambles.  I hope you have all made it through safely and started the return to normal.
While my home and office remain without power [ . . . ] I am beginning to have some reception and have mobilized my staff to assist those who are less fortunate.
Please feel free to email or call me at  917-226-6405 (by the way, I do not have your telephone contacts at the moment).  Also, please collect the contact information for everyone who suffered serious damages and wants help.  We will need their name, address, telephone, email and a brief description (loss of motor vehicle, flood-damaged basements, injuries, loss of business, etc.).  Make sure to tell everyone to take photos before they clean up and repair.
I will help everyone pro bono to apply for government aid/compensation and to submit insurance claims.  Via email, I am able to assist as early as this week.  Feel free to share my information and this offer with anyone that may need it.
Okay, everyone! Take photos before clean-up, if you think you need legal help, and if you need help with getting legal help, who knows? These folks might be it . . .
