Local bars offering free veterans legal clinic Saturday in Pearland
Veterans seeking legal advice or legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic on Saturday, June 28, 2014, in Pearland, southeast of Houston. The clinic is joint-sponsored by the Brazoria County Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative, a coalition of local bar associations spanning 17 Texas counties that provides pro bono legal services to thousands of veterans.
The clinic will be held from 9:00 a.m. to noon at the VFW Post 7109 in Pearland, at 4202 W. Walnut St. Any U.S. veteran or a spouse of a deceased veteran is welcome to attend the clinic, and no appointment is necessary. Volunteer attorneys will be available to answer legal questions and provide counsel on matters concerning a variety of areas of law, including wills and probate, consumer, real estate, tax, and disability/veterans benefits. Some veterans in need of ongoing legal representation who qualify for legal aid may be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.
The Veterans Legal Initiative additionally holds a free legal clinic every Friday from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on the first floor of the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center in Houston.
