Vets receive free legal aid at clinic | Local & State

Volunteer attorneys spent Saturday morning offering legal assistance to East Texas veterans during a free clinic at the Charles Wilson VA Outpatient Clinic.

Anne Chandler is a volunteer attorney working with the Texas Access to Justice Commission’s statewide effort to get more attorneys out to help veterans. The purpose of the clinic is to get legal information, advice and legal help in the hands of veterans and surviving spouses of veterans who have legal problems, he said.
