The American Bar Association has disaster recovery resources for bar leaders here.

UPDATE: Here is further information from the ABA:

We haven’t developed any resources specifically for the Iowa crisis, but had established a page linking to several of our published resources during the time of the Katrina disaster. Here are some links to those resources:www.lawpractice.org/katrina
