Free Veterans Benefits Legal Clinic to be held at UVA School of Law

The attorneys of the Veterans Benefit Group of Goodman Allen Donnelly will return to UVA School of Law to hold another free legal clinic for Central Virginia veterans.   In collaboration with the UVA Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s Center and the UVA School of Law, the clinic will be held on Monday, November 6, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the University of Virginia School of Law (580 Massie Road, Charlottesville, VA).  Veterans and family members are welcome to register for the clinic, where they will meet with an attorney one-on-one to discuss questions about disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.  According to Erin Ralston, attorney with the Veterans Benefit Group, “As Veterans Day approaches, we are reminded of the tremendous sacrifices of service men and women, and the fact that many veterans continue to suffer from conditions related to their service. These free legal clinics offer a unique opportunity for veterans and family members to meet with an experienced attorney to help navigate the complicated VA disability benefits process.”

The clinic is open to all Veterans who pre-register.  Free, convenient parking will be available, plus student greeters will be on hand to guide attendees to the event.  Those interested in attending may call (434) 817-2193 to pre-register for the event.
