Veterans in need of legal advice or assistance can visit a free legal clinic from 9 a.m. to noon April 16 at the American Legion Post 129, 206 S. Durant St., Alvin, TX 77511.

The clinic provides any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran, one-on-one advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in any area of law including family, probate, consumer, real estate, tax law, disability and veterans benefits.

No appointment is necessary. Veterans who need ongoing legal representation and who qualify for legal aid may be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.

The clinic is a public service of the Brazoria County Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative, a coalition of local bar associations that provide pro bono services to U.S. veterans in 18 counties in Texas.
