A free legal clinic for veterans will take place on Saturday, March 14, at the Galveston VA Outpatient Clinic, 3828 Ave. N, Galveston 77550. During the event, which will run from 9 a.m. to noon, volunteer lawyers will be available to assist veterans and spouses of deceased veterans with any area of law, including disability and veterans benefits, family, wills and probate, consumer, and real estate and tax. If ongoing legal representation is needed, veterans who qualify for legal aid will be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.
The clinic is co-sponsored by the Galveston County Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative. 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 hba.org.
