The attorneys of the Veterans Benefit Group of Goodman Allen Donnelly will return to the UVA School of Law to hold a 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 12, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the University of Virginia School of Law, 580 Massie Road, Charlottesville, Virginia. Veterans and family members are welcome to register for the clinic, where they will meet with an experienced attorney one-on-one to discuss questions about disability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs.
According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, Virginia has one of the highest concentrations of veterans in the country. Observances on and around Veterans Day, November 11, honor the patriotic commitment and sacrifice veterans made during their term of service. Many veterans, after having served their country, suffer from conditions related to their service, and are eligible for disability benefits. “The legal clinics recognize and help resolve the continuing challenges faced by these veterans and their families. Regardless of how, when, or where they served, we work with veterans around the world on a daily basis, helping them navigate the claim process”, said Erin Ralston, an attorney with the firm’s Veterans Benefit Group. “The Charlottesville clinic offers Central Virginia veterans and their families an opportunity to meet with an experienced attorney to review their claim, and discuss their options.”
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 (804) 565-5961 to pre-register for the event. For more information on the Legal Clinic program at UVA Maxine Platzer Lynn Women’s center, visit their website.
