Veterans who need legal advice or legal assistance can visit this free legal clinic in conjunction with the Veterans Legal Initiative, a coalition of local bar associations providing pro bono legal services to U.S. veterans in 17 counties in Texas. The clinic is co-sponsored by the Houston Bar Foundation, the Texas A&M University Galveston Student Veterans Association, and the Galveston County Bar Association.
Any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran, can receive advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in any area of law, including family, wills and probate, consumer, real estate and tax law, as well as disability and veterans benefits. Veterans who need ongoing legal representation and who qualify for legal aid will be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.
The Houston Bar Foundation also sponsors weekly Friday afternoon clinics at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center, from 2:00 p.m. until 5 p.m. on the first floor. More information about upcoming clinics is available at www.hba.org.
