The year 2017 has been an extraordinary year for hurricanes impacting the U.S. and the Caribbean. It is heartbreaking to see pictures and videos of the destruction and devastation. Recovery will take many years for some of these areas and many families have lost photo albums and prized possessions that cannot be replaced. The number of wildfires in the western part of the U.S. this year has been staggering as well.

Given the huge number of disasters we have seen this year, surely no law firm is without a disaster plan now? Right? Right?Disaster plan

I could feel the silence in response to that, even over the Internet.

If your planning is not adequate, start your planning by reading my column from the Oklahoma Bar Journal, What a Disaster! Hopefully this will give you a good outline from which to begin.
