    Save the date!

    The Bell County Bar Association's Veteran's Clinic will be on November 8, 2019 at the Temple VA Hospital from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    As always with the fall clinic, we expect a big turnout and need your assistance in helping our Veterans. 

    You can volunteer for an hour, two hours, or all four hours. We can use your help! By volunteering, you are not taking on any obligation to represent a Veteran, although you may do so if you wish. We need our attorney volunteers to screen cases and discuss the case with the Veteran, if you are able. For those Veterans who present issues that need additional time and/or work, we have a network of attorneys to whom we can refer cases.

    Most of the issues presented are basic questions about family law, consumer law, landlord-tenant law, and Veteran's law. We also provide each attorney with a handy guide that answers many of the Veteran's questions.

    For more information, please contact me at Also, check out the video at on how your assistance can impact our Veterans.

    We hope to see you there.
