Texas Veterans Legal Aid Week

Texas RioGrande Legal Aid (TRLA) is proud to join the Texas Access to Justice Foundation and legal aid organizations throughout the state in recognizing this week as Texas Veterans Legal Aid Week.

Throughout the week, TRLA will be providing free legal services for Texas veterans at various events throughout the state. A complete list of events is available at http://texaslawhelp.org/veterans.

Texas has the second-highest population of veterans in the nation. TRLA recently received a $900,000 grant award from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation to expand our efforts to provide legal services to veterans. TRLA’s services will include helping obtain benefits and critical medical care, family law matters, and other civil legal issues.

Veterans in need of legal assistance and unable to attend any of the clinic events in person will have the opportunity to obtain free legal help online from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day this week.  The Texas Legal Services Center will host a live online chat at texaslawhelp.org/veterans. To participate,  click on the green button at the bottom right-hand corner of the page.

You can follow the events throughout the state using #TVLAW.
