Jean-Frederic Sales reopened his law office outside Port-au-Prince, Haiti, on Monday -- nearly two weeks after an earthquake rocked the city and killed an estimated 100,000 or more people.

Those who could negotiate the debris-strewn streets showed up on Monday to work, regroup and plan for a future that remained uncertain.
