Free legal clinic for veterans in Orange

Veterans who need legal advice or legal assistance can visit a FREE legal clinic on Saturday, February 27, 2016, at the VFW Post 2775, 5303 N. 16th Street, Orange, TX  77630.  The clinic is a public service of the Jefferson County Bar Association, which is part of a coalition of bar associations that provide pro bono legal services to U.S. veterans in 17 counties in Texas.

Appointments are not necessary, but are encouraged.  Any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran, can receive advice and counsel from a volunteer attorney in areas of law, including family law, wills and probate, consumer issues, landlord/tenant law, bankruptcy, employment, foreclosures, and veterans’ benefits and disability claims.  Veterans who need ongoing legal representation and who qualify for legal aid may be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.  The guidelines allow for veterans to have income up to 125 percent above the poverty level and qualify for services.

For more information on the February 27 clinic and other services for veterans, contact the Jefferson County Bar Association at 409-835-8647.
