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.

For more information on the June 28 Pearland clinic and other services for veterans, contact the Veterans Legal Initiative at 713-759-1133 or visit hba.org.

This is such a great clinic that's offered to help out families and individuals that have served for us. I know you mention this is held each week at the medical center, but are events held elsewhere as well?
