Veterans who need legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic scheduled in Galveston 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. No appointment is necessary. 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.
