In commemoration of Veterans Day, the Jefferson County Bar Association (JCBA) will hold a Free Legal Advice Clinic for area veterans on Saturday, November 10, 2012 from 8:30 a.m. till Noon at the Beaumont Civic Centers Meeting Rooms located at 701 Main Street, Beaumont, TX 77701. Appointments are strongly encouraged by calling the bar office at (409)835-8647 prior to Wednesday, November 7, 2012. Walk-ins will be welcomed.

Volunteer attorneys will provide legal advice on issues such as family law, wills and probate, consumer issues, landlord/tenant law, tax issues, bankruptcy, employment, foreclosures, and veterans benefits and disability claims. For veterans needing legal representation and who financially qualify, ProBono attorneys will be assigned. The financial guidelines have been adjusted for veterans so that they may have income up to 200 percent above the poverty level and still qualify for services. The clinic is open to any Jefferson, Hardin, Orange, Liberty or Chambers County veteran or spouse of a deceased veteran FREE of charge.

The JCBAs legal advice clinic is part of the statewide Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans (TLTV) initiative, a program begun by the State Bar of Texas and funded by The Texas Access to Justice Foundation (TAJF) to ensure that organized legal clinics exist throughout the state to specifically assist military veterans who cannot afford or do not have access to basic legal services. TAJF is the leading funder of civil legal aid to the poor in Texas. Created in 1984 by the Supreme Court of Texas, TAJF awards millions of dollars per year that benefits hundreds of thousands of low-income Texans annually including victims of crime, abused and neglected children, veterans, the elderly and the homeless.
