LONE STAR LEGAL AID EXPANDS VETERANS PROJECT

Lone Star Legal Aid is growing our Veterans project which is aimed at increasing legal services to low-income veterans. We now have three full time attorneys based in our Houston office focused on serving Veteran-clients with legal problems throughout our entire service area of 72 counties in Texas and four counties in Arkansas. Additionally, we continue to recruit and train private attorneys to increase our capacity to serve more in need.  Lone Star Legal Aid continues to collaborate with vital community partners in this endeavor so that we may serve veterans-clients in the most holistic and effective manner.

 This expansion is made possible because of renewed funding from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation, new funding from the Texas Veterans Commission which supplements our regular funding from the Legal Services Corporation and United Way.

At a time when Veterans are increasingly in need of legal help, Lone Star Legal Aid is proud to continue growing our efforts to serve low-income Veterans with civil legal problems who
 cannot afford an attorney.

For those in need of legal assistance and to apply for free legal services with Lone Star Legal Aid, please call 1-800-733-8394. Additionally, on our website: www.lonestarlegal.org you will find addresses and local numbers for each Lone Star Legal Aid office.
