Veterans Legal Services Clinic

Registration for the March 2016 Veterans Legal Services Clinics is now CLOSED.  We have plans to offer more clinics in different areas of the Commonwealth over the coming year.  You may fill out an application now, and we will contact you when more clinics are scheduled.  Alternatively, you may check back from time to time for announcements about future clinic dates and locations.  Thank you for your interest and for your service to the nation and to our Commonwealth.

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
  • Advanced 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 in four locations in March, 2016: Tidewater, Richmond, Roanoke, and Northern Virginia, with more clinics anticipated for the future.
