Veterans who need legal advice or legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic scheduled in Fort Bend County on Saturday, Oct. 12.
The clinic will be held at the Richmond VA Outpatient Clinic, 22001 U.S. 59, Suite 200, in Richmond from 9 a.m. until noon. No appointment is necessary.
The clinic is a public service of the Fort Bend Lawyers Care, Fort Bend County Bar Association and Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative.
Any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran can receive one-on-one advice and counsel at the clinic 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 through the Houston Volunteer Lawyers to handle their case.
The Houston Bar Foundation and Houston Volunteer Lawyers also sponsor weekly Friday afternoon clinics at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center from 1-5 p.m. on the first floor.
More information about the clinics is available at www.hba.org.
