Free legal clinic for veterans on Nov. 5

Veterans who need legal advice or legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic on Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Beaumont VA Outpatient Clinic, 3420 Veterans Circle, Beaumont, TX. 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% above the poverty level and qualify for services.

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