Free Veterans Benefits Legal Clinic to be held at UVA’s Open Grounds, 1400 University Avenue, Charlottesville, VA
Thursday, February 18, 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, are hosting a Free Veterans Benefits Legal Clinic for veterans in the Charlottesville community. The clinic will be held on Thursday, February 18, 2016 from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Open Grounds, 1400 University Avenue. This pro bono clinic enables a Veteran 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, worked with Sarah Steel at the UVA Women’s Center to organize and spread the word about the event. Ms. Ralston said, “The VA disability benefits process is very complicated, and these clinics provide Veterans with an opportunity to meet with an experienced attorney to go over the challenges they’ve faced and get insight into how to overcome the hurdles on their cases.”
The clinic is open to all Veterans who pre-register. Those interested in attending can call (804) 565-3532 to pre-register for the event.
