Volunteer attorneys will provide legal advice on issues such as family law, wills and probate, consumer issues, landlord/tenant law, tax issues, bankruptcy, employment, foreclosures, and veterans’ benefits and disability claims. Other legal issues may apply. The clinic is open to any southeast Texas veteran or spouse of a deceased veteran free of charge. Veterans who need further legal representation and meet the eligibility requirements may be assigned to a volunteer attorney who will take the case on a pro bono basis.
