The Jefferson County Bar Association is sponsoring free telephonic legal advice appointments to veterans on Wednesday, July 1, 2020.
Volunteer attorneys will answer legal questions for veterans from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Volunteers will call participants to provide up to 15 minutes of free legal advice for a legal issue.
Any Jefferson, Hardin, Orange, Liberty or Chambers County veteran or spouse of a deceased veteran is eligible to receive individualized legal advice from a volunteer attorney FREE of charge in a variety of law areas including family law, wills and probate, consumer issues, landlord/tenant law, employment, and more. Those who need continued legal representation and who qualify for legal aid may be assigned a pro bono attorney to handle their case.
This event 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. The Texas Access to Justice Foundation provides support to this program.
