    The Bell County Bar Association wants YOU...to volunteer for this year's Veteran's Clinic. Please read below and consider volunteering to help.

     

    Date: April 8, 2022

    Time: 1:00-4:00 p.m.

    Location: Killeen Workforce Commission, 300 Cheyenne Dr., Killeen, TX

     

    As a volunteer, you will interview prospective clients and determine any legal needs. If you can offer advice that will solve their problem, please do so. Otherwise, you will get the necessary information from the client so that we can refer it out to one of our many on-call volunteers. If future representation is needed, you may provide it yourself, or we will refer the matter to one of our on-call attorneys who take those specific types of cases. There is no obligation for you to ever take on a case.

    If you've never volunteered before, this is a wonderful opportunity to serve those who have served our country. If you have helped before, you know how rewarding this opportunity can be. We need your help. Please consider volunteering for a half-hour, an hour, or for the full 3 hours. If you are NOT available to volunteer the day of the clinic, please email Cindi or Wade and let us know if you are willing to represent a veteran after the clinic.

     

    If you would like to volunteer, please email Wade Faulkner (wade@wadefaulkner.com) and/or Cindi Parker (cynthia.parker@bellcounty.texas.gov) and indicate your areas of expertise and when you can help. Thank you for your support!

    Please contact Wade Faulkner directly if you have any questions.
