FREE LEGAL ADVICE FOR VETERANS THIS FRIDAY
April 10, 2014
The Bell County Bar Association will offer free legal advice at a clinic this Friday afternoon at Texas A&M University – Central Texas. The clinic will be held at Founder's Hall on the main campus of the university from 1p.m. to 4p.m. All U.S. veterans and spouses of deceased veterans are welcome, free of charge.
At the event, lawyers will provide guidance for veterans regarding family law, will, probate, property tax, veteran's benefits, disability benefits, and more. Attendees do not need an appointment to participate.
The clinic is offered in partnership with the Veteran's Legal Initiative, an organization founded by the Houston Bar Association in 2008 to provide legal guidance and advocacy for United States veterans. Since its beginning, the initiative has helped more than 8,000 U.S. service members.
A spokesperson for the Houston Bar Association said, "It was pretty obvious there was a need."
Today, the initiative serves veterans throughout Texas in 17 counties. Learn more about the Veteran's Legal Initiative here.
