Veterans in need of legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic in Fort Bend County this month.

Any veterans or spouses of deceased veterans will be able to receive individualized legal advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in a variety of law areas including family, wills and probate, consumer, real estate, tax, and disability and veterans benefits, according to a Houston Bar Association press release.

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

The clinic, scheduled for June 11, is a service of Fort Bend Lawyers Care, the Fort Bend County Bar Association, and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative, which is a coalition of local bar associations providing free legal services to veterans in 18 Texas counties.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to noon at the Richmond VA Outpatient Clinic at 22001 Southwest Fwy., Ste. 200, Richmond.
