Veterans needing legal advice or assistance can meet with a lawyer during a free clinic that will take place on Saturday, Oct. 11 at the Katy VA Outpatient Clinic, 750 Westgreen Blvd., 2nd Floor. The event, which will run from 9 a.m. to noon, is also open to spouses of deceased veterans.

Volunteer attorneys will offer counsel in any area of the law, including family, wills and probate, consumer, real estate and tax law, as well as disability and veterans benefits. No appointment is necessary.

The clinic is a public service of the Katy Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative. Veterans who need ongoing legal representation and who qualify for legal aid will be assigned a pro bono attorney through the Houston Volunteer Lawyers to handle their case.

The Houston Bar Foundation also sponsors weekly Friday afternoon clinics at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center from 2 to 5 p.m. on the first floor. For more information, go to
