Free legal counsel and advice are available at the legal clinics to veterans and the surviving spouses of deceased
veterans, without regard to financial eligibility. After financial evaluation and qualifications, a veteran's legal
matter requiring representation the program case placement subcommittee makes every effort to locate a volunteer
attorney to represent the veteran pro bono. The program does not have staff attorneys that take cases. All cases
are referred to volunteer attorneys; therefore, the program cannot guarantee that all eligible cases will be placed
with an attorney for representation. The program cannot take cases that have close deadlines or are considered
emergencies; it can take up to 4 to 5 weeks to place a case with a volunteer attorney.
Areas of law covered at legal clinics include:
- Family Law
- Wills, Estate Planning and Probate
- Housing and Landlord/Tenant
- Criminal Defense
*Financial guidelines apply for free (pro bono) representation on a legal matter
referred outside the clinics. Attorneys volunteer their time and services to
make an evaluation and decision on whether to represent a veteran in tha
particular case, and the Tarrant County Bar Association makes no guarantee that
an attorney will agree to take any particular case. The number of volunteer
attorneys taking a pro bono case is limited, and the cases will be evaluated on
the complexity and estimated time of representation.
