Pro Bono Opportunities To Serve Veterans

At Lone Star Legal Aid, we are working hard to serve our military and service members through our latest initiative: Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans. Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans engages community partners and pro bono attorneys to better serve low income Texas Veterans who desperately need legal assistance and access to the courts. Please get involved by spreading the word about our volunteer opportunities to potential pro bono attorneys, paralegals and law students as well as social workers and other valuable community partners.

Help spread the word about our social media supporting Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans and the work that we do, with your support, to honor our service members and veterans! Please like the Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans page on Face Book, please follow LoneStar4Vets on Twitter and please subscribe to our Word Press Blog lonestarlegalaid4veterans@wordpress.com 

There are a wide range of support levels and opportunities including simply passing on our information, taking cases on a pro bono basis or helping out at a free legal services clinic.  Please check out the attached brochure Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans and volunteer form Pro Bono Volunteer Form.
