Program Overview

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.

Thank you to these foundations, companies, firms and individuals for their generous donations in 2012-2013
Their generosity makes it possible for us to serve the veterans that cannot afford legal counsel in Tarrant County.
