The clinic, put on by the Katy Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative, will be held at the Katy Elks Lodge 2628, 1050 Katy Fort Bend Rd., 77493.

Veterans and spouses of deceased veterans will get to meet with volunteer attorneys for one-on-one advice and counsel in several areas of law, including family, wills and probate, consumer, and real estate and tax law. Attorneys will also be available to discuss disability and veterans benefits.

Qualifying veterans seeking legal representation may be assigned a pro bono attorney from the Houston Volunteer Lawyers.

The clinic runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 1, and is part of the Third Annual Katy Area Veterans Family Fun & Resource Day. No appointment is necessary.

Additional legal clinics are sponsored by the Houston Bar Foundation weekly at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the first floor. For more information, go to
