5 Biggest Client Questions After Hurricane Harvey (subscription required)
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, the Jackson Walker family came together to help those in need. Many of our lawyers and staff took in displaced families and volunteered at shelters. We worked with government and private groups to help the City of Houston work through the devastation wrought by Harvey and continue to keep those affected by the storm in our thoughts.
Partner Amanda Zimmerman worked tirelessly after the crisis began, first at the George R. Brown Convention Center and later at NRG Stadium organizing medical services. Amanda’s husband, Marc Eichenbaum, Special Assistant to the Mayor, spearheaded the city’s effort to coordinate shelters. We’re proud of their heroic efforts and dedication to the Houston community.
Houston associate John Hays served fourteen years in the Marine Corps as a gunnery sergeant and is still a member of the reserves today. John’s unit was activated to assist with flood related rescues. Along with other Marines in Houston, John worked tirelessly to get assistance to people who need it, ran off would-be looters, and teamed up with other Marines to reach the worst affected areas. Throughout his efforts, John said “We won’t stop until everyone is accounted for, period.”
