A free legal clinic for veterans is scheduled for Nov. 8 at the Galveston VA Outpatient Clinic, 3828 Avenue N.

Any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran, is welcome to attend and receive advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in any area of the law—including family, consumer, wills and probate, real estate and tax, and disability and veterans benefits. If a veteran requires ongoing legal representation and qualifies for legal aid, a pro bono attorney will be assigned to handle the case.

The clinic, which will take place from 9 a.m. to noon in conjunction with the VA Outpatient Clinic’s Veterans Fair, is co-sponsored by the Galveston County Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative.

No appointment is necessary. For more information on the event and other services for veterans, go to hba.org.
