September 11:
A lookback
moving on
By DEENA R. EHRUCH
The losses were staggering. Nassau
County families were especially hard hit.
The nation was plunged into mourning and
the Nassau County Bar Aascclat.on
searched for sor way to help Reacting
swiftly to the news of the September 11
tragedy, the Assciation's leadership devel.
oped a multipronged plan. Almost immedi-
ately we offered assistance to those
members of the profession directly effected
by the events of September 11, offering
%e pin-dte   and-e  ological resources,
even the creation of a website for one
attorney so his clients would be able to
locate him. We then organized volunteers to
prcvide'pro bono legal guidance for families
-who'suffereda loss by helping them navi-
_gate Surrogate's Court~and a myriad of
other-challenges with which they were
.faed :Finalb; our membeis contbuted to a
newly created NCBA/WE CARE World
Trade Center Disaster Relief Fund. Even
though there were numerous other charities
and community organizations who were also
raising fno, we ,were pleased to have col.
lected some $33,000 for the NCBA/WE
CARE WTC Emergency Relief Fund. A com.
mittee was appointed and charged with
determining the best use of the money The
committee was cognizant of the number of
other sourms of relief and support for
affected families, and, gyen the limited
amount of money and the vast numbers of
Nassau County surviving IAmily members,
