Angie talks from her desk

Prestonsburg, Ky. (WYMT) - AppalreD Legal Aid, which has served Eastern Kentuckians in civil cases for decades, now has a new leader.

Angeleigh Dorsey, who had many years of prior experience in legal aid, was hired as the new executive director.

In her first few weeks, Dorsey said disaster response, even more than a year since the July 2022 flood, continues to be a top priority.

“A lot of times the legal issues come in later to the game. People, they need to get in housing. They need to make sure everybody’s safe. They need to take care of all their immediate concerns, but then down the line, that’s when all the legal problems related with disasters pop up,” said Angeleigh Dorsey.
