Veterans who need legal advice or legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic scheduled in Cleveland/San Jacinto County on Saturday (June 23). The program is offered by a conjunction with the Veterans Legal Initiative, a coalition of local bar associations providing pro bono legal services to U.S. veterans in 14 counties in Southeast Texas.
The clinic will be held June 23 at VFW Post 1839, 18 CR 396, North Cleveland TX 77328, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. No appointment is necessary. The clinic is co-sponsored with the Northeast Harris County Bar Association in conjunction with the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative.
Veterans, spouses of a deceased veteran, can receive advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in any area of law, including family, wills and probate, consumer, real estate and tax law, as well as disability and veterans benefits. Veterans who need ongoing legal representation and who qualify for legal aid will be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.
A schedule of upcoming Saturday clinics throughout the 14-county area is posted available at http://www.hba.org.
