Free legal advice for vets
In commemoration of Veterans Day, the Jefferson County Bar Association (JCBA) will hold the second annual Free Legal Advice Clinic for area veterans on Saturday, Nov. 12, 8:30 a.m. – noon at Lamar University’s Montagne Center Cardinal Club Room located at 4400 S. MLK Pkwy. in Beaumont. Appointments are strongly encouraged by calling the bar office at (409) 835-8647 prior to Wednesday, Nov. 9, but walk-ins will be welcomed if time permits.
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.
