TRLA Honors Vets with Free Legal Clinics

Every year in November, Texas RioGrande Legal Aid holds special clinics and attends Veterans Day events where vets can get free legal assistance to  cope with issues such as restoring a driver’s license, writing a will, or dealing with a bankruptcy.

This year, TRLA attorneys, paralegals and volunteers will be available at more than a dozen events in San Antonio, El Paso, Brownsville, Austin, McAllen, and Windcrest.
