On December 7, I was proud to announce a partnership with the Virginia Department of Veterans Services (DVS) and the Virginia State Bar (VSB) to launch the first pro bono Veterans Legal Services Clinics to provide estate planning services to low-income veterans throughout the Commonwealth.
At these clinics, qualified Virginia veterans and their spouses can receive legal wills, powers of attorney, and advance medical directives prepared at no cost by volunteer lawyers from my office. These important documents can provide veterans, their partners, and families with peace of mind and planning for the future.
These clinics will be held during the first week of March at the following locations across the Commonwealth:
- HAMPTON ROADS: Tuesday, March 1, 2016 at Tidewater Community College – 1428 Cedar Road, Chesapeake, VA 23322
- RICHMOND: Wednesday, March 2, 2016 at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College – Parham Road Campus, 1651 E Parham Road, Richmond, VA 23228
- ROANOKE: Thursday, March 3, 2016 at Virginia Western Community College – 3094 Colonial Avenue, Roanoke, Virginia 24015
- NORTHERN VIRGINIA: Friday, March 4, 2016 at Northern Virginia Community College – 8333 Little River Turnpike, Annandale, VA 22003
As a leader of one of the Commonwealth’s outstanding veterans services organizations, I ask for your assistance in spreading the word about this opportunity to veterans and their spouses.
The flyer below and attached contains information about the clinics and a link to our website where veterans can fill out an application. I’ve also attached a copy of the application to this email, and applications may be picked up at any DVS Benefits Field Office. Participants must fill out an application in advance of the clinic, and unfortunately walk-ups cannot be accepted.
If you or your members have any questions about the program, please contact Senior Assistant Attorney General Heather Lockerman by phone at (804)786-0067 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much for your service, your leadership, and for helping us spread the word about this important opportunity for Virginia veterans.
