Free legal clinic for veterans, June 24 in Katy

Veterans who need legal advice or legal assistance can visit a free legal clinic scheduled in Katy on Saturday, June 24, 2017.  The clinic will be held from 9:00 a.m. until Noon at the Katy VA Outpatient Clinic, 750 Westgreen Blvd., Katy, TX 77450. No appointment is necessary. The legal clinic is a public service of the Katy Bar Association and the Houston Bar Foundation’s Veterans Legal Initiative.

Any veteran, or spouse of a deceased veteran, can receive one-on-one advice and counsel at the clinic from a volunteer attorney in any area of law, including family, wills and probate, consumer, real estate and tax law, as well as disability and veterans benefits. Veterans who need ongoing legal representation and who qualify for legal aid may be assigned a pro bono attorney through the Houston Volunteer Lawyers to handle their case.

The Houston Bar Foundation also sponsors weekly Friday afternoon clinics at the Michael E. DeBakey VA Medical Center from 1:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. on the first floor. More information about legal services for veterans is available at www.hba.org.
