Any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran, can receive advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in any area of law. 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, the Jefferson County Bar Foundation, Fort Bend Lawyers Care and Baylor Law School have been awarded grants from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation to recruit and train attorney volunteers and to set up Saturday legal clinics where veterans can get legal advice and, if eligible, pro bono representation.
