CHICAGO - David B. Wolfe, Chair-elect for American Bar Association (ABA) Young Lawyers Division (YLD), has appointed David Nguyen to serve as Vice-Director of the division's Disaster Legal Services (DLS).

Disaster Legal Services is a collaboration between the ABA YLD and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to provide pro bono disaster related legal services to low-income victims of a federally-declared disaster.

When a disaster strikes, FEMA contacts the ABA YLD Disaster Legal Services to implement the relevant area's disaster relief plan. The DLS representative in the relevant area sets up a toll-free hotline for victims to receive free legal assistance.

David's service will be for the bar year 2010 - 2011.
