Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans-Tarrant County Chapter, (“TLTV”), is a community service committee under the
Tarrant County Bar Foundation, a nonprofit organization with a 501c(3) status.
TLTV encourages and recruits Tarrant County attorneys to provide legal services for veterans and spouses of deceased
veterans with legal issues in Tarrant County.
TLTV organizes legal clinics to coordinate with individual volunteer attorneys who provide consultation and legal
counseling in family, consumer/finance, probate, estate planning, bankruptcy, landlord/tenant, criminal and other
legal matters. The program does not provide assistance regarding veterans’ benefits. The clinics are held at the
Fort Worth VA Outpatient Clinic, 2201 SW Loop 820 the third Friday of every month, except the months of March and
December. After the legal clinic, if the veteran meets the income eligibility criteria according to the Texas
Access to Justice Foundation Grant requirements, the case placement subcommittee makes all the arrangements to match
the veteran with a pro bono attorney to represent him/her in their legal matter.
The Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans Program has served over 1,000 veterans since its inception in the Fall of 2010.
More than 300 attorneys have donated over 10,000 hours of pro bono work by participating in the committee, taking pro-bono
cases or attending the clinics. Also, we have non-attorney volunteers, paralegals and law student volunteers that
participate in the client intake process. A solid partnership with Legal Aid of Northwest Texas, MHMR of Tarrant County,
and the Tarrant County Family Law Bar Association is a fundamental part the program, providing and sharing resources and
working together to assist the veterans in our community.
