Veterans Legal Services Clinic

**Registration is now open for the Petersburg Clinic on November 17! Please fill out an application below.**

Attorney General Mark R. Herring is committed to supporting veterans who have risked their lives to protect the freedom Virginians and Americans enjoy each and every day. He is proud to announce the Office of the Attorney General’s very first pro bono veterans legal services clinic to help veterans create important legal documents including:

  • Wills
  • Powers of attorney
  • Advance medical directives

The clinics, in conjunction with the Virginia Department of Veterans Services and the Virginia State Bar, are available to veterans and their partners.
