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.
