The village of Freeport and the Nassau County Bar Association will combine efforts to offer free legal advice to superstorm Sandy victims next month.

Volunteer attorneys will meet one-on-one with Sandy victims on Feb. 5, from 3 to 6 p.m., at Freeport Recreation Center, the bar association said in a statement.

The bar association has also invited representatives from the Federal Emergency Management Agency and the federal Small Business Administration to attend.

The recreation center is at 130 E. Merrick Rd. in Freeport.
