The Bell County Bar Association will be sponsoring a legal clinic for veterans on Friday, April 27, 2018, at the Texas Workforce Commission located at 300 Cheyenne Drive, Killeen, Texas 76542.
We still need attorney and paralegal volunteers to help staff the clinic, and attorneys who are willing to take one or more cases/referrals from the clinic. No document prep is done on site. Some veterans have cases which can be resolved with just a short consultation. Some veterans have cases that require representation. Volunteer attorneys do not have to represent those veterans, as they will be referred to another attorney in that situation.
AGAIN, PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE NOT OBLIGATED TO ACCEPT A REFERRAL. You will be merely be interviewing veterans to determine if they need an attorneys assistance and then determine what kind of an attorney the clinic should connect the veteran with.
Obviously, the more volunteers there are, the better the chance that every veteran is provided the legal assistance that they need.
None of us can do everything, but all of us can do something.
