Lone Star Legal Aid Hosts Free CLE for Lawyers Serving Veterans: April 27 10-4 @ College of the Mainland

Did you know that Lone Star Legal Aid is conducting a FREE Continuing Legal Education event to recruit and train private attorneys to help us serve more low-income veterans with legal problems?  The event will take place Friday April 27 at College of the Mainland in Texas City from 10-4 and is accredited with the State Bar of Texas for 5 legal education credits.  Thanks to our friends at the College of the Mainland for partnering with us to make this possible!

This legal education event is free for all attorneys who agree to accept at least one case for a low-income veteran from Lone Star Legal Aid on a pro bono basis. There will be free boxed lunches available for folks who RSVP by April 20.  Topics for the event include a wide range of topics like foreclosure strategies, service member protections and becoming accredited to practice before the VA.  Check out the attached flyer for more details!

In addition to events like this along with our firm-wide efforts to serve more veterans, we are proud to announce that thanks to funding from the Texas Veterans Commission and continuing support from the Texas Access to Justice Foundation we now have three attorneys serving veteran clients full time. VETERAN FLYER

For existing pro bono partner attorneys, who have already taken a case from Lone Star Legal Aid on a pro bono basis, please plan to attend this event for free as a thank you for your dedicated pro bono service! We encourage you to continue to partner with us as we honor veterans with free legal services.  

 Please  encourage your attorney friends and colleagues to attend. Please RSVP to rmason@lonestarlegal.org if you plan to attend.  As always, thank you for all you do as Lone Star Legal Aid continues to grow our Veteran work!
