Lawyers mobilized by the New York State Bar Association went to Binghamton, N.Y., last week to give free legal advice to families of 13 persons slain by a gunman at an immigration services center April 3. Lawyers assisted with estate, guardianship, visa and immigration issues. However, the greatest need was for help in accessing counseling and other services, according to a former bar association president, who says she found a home care aide for a woman whose daughter -- her primary caregiver -- was killed in the attack.
