Pro Bono Veteran’s Legal Services Clinic in Petesrburg July 10th
The Office of Attorney General Mark Herring, Virginia Department of Veterans Services (DVS) and the Virginia State Bar (VSB) are once again hosting a Veteran’s Legal Services Clinic to provide free estate planning to qualified Virginia veterans and military spouses.
The next clinic is scheduled for Tuesday, July 10, 2018 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at the Petersburg Freedom Support Center, located at 32 W. Washington Street, Petersburg, Virginia 23803.
Volunteer attorneys from Attorney General Herring’s office and the VSB will serve low-income veterans by drafting important estate planning documents like wills, powers of attorney and advance medical directives. Representatives from DVS will also be present to answer questions regarding state and federal benefits that may be available to Virginia veterans including health benefits, disability benefits, financial services, education benefits, burial in a Virginia or United States veterans cemetery, and more.
Qualified veterans can sign up on Attorney General Herring’s website, at their local DVS Benefits Services Field Office, or by completing and mailing an application to the Attorney General’s office. Please note that participants must sign up for an appointment and complete an intake questionnaire – we will be unable to accommodate walk-ins.
