Legal aid organizations throughout the state are celebrating Veterans Week, which runs from November 6th to the 12th. Many, including TexasLawHelp.org, which is funded by the Texas Access to Justice Foundation, are offering resources and pro bono services to our nation's men and women who served in uniform.
Free help for Texas veterans is also provided via the Veterans Legal Aid Portal with links to a number of helpful resources and a free legal assistance hotline (1-800-622-2520). Other organizations, including Lone Star Legal Aid, the Texas Legal Services Center, the State Bar of Texas, the Houston Bar Association, and the Texas Veterans Legal Assistance Project, have similar initiatives in place.
The Harris County Law Library is providing access to legal research materials, including federal forms for veterans, the Code of Federal Regulations (Title 38: Veterans Affairs), and a veterans benefits handbook, along with several military law titles, which are available though HeinOnline. Please visit our Veterans' Legal Resources display in the library. It will be available throughout the week.
