Free Veterans Benefits Legal Clinic to be held at UVA’s Open Grounds, 1400 University Avenue, Charlottesville, VA
Wednesday, August 17 2016, 1:00 to 7:00 p.m.
The UVA Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center, in collaboration with attorneys with the Veterans Benefit Group of Goodman Allen Donnelly, is hosting a Free Veterans Benefits Legal Clinic for Veterans in Central Virginia. The clinic will be held on Wednesday, August 17, 2016, from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Open Grounds (1400 University Avenue). This pro bono clinic enables Veterans to meet with an attorney one-on-one to discuss questions about disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Ms. Erin Ralston, an attorney with the Veterans Benefit Group, has worked with the UVA Women’s Center to organize and spread the word about this event. Ms. Ralston said, “The VA disability benefits process can be very complicated, and the clinic provides a unique opportunity for a Veteran to meet with an experienced attorney to review the challenges they’ve encountered. Veterans also get insight about how to overcome the hurdles on their cases.”
The clinic is open to all Veterans who pre-register. Those interested in attending can call (434) 817-2189 to pre-register for the event.
