Richmond, VA (WRIC) – The Virginia Department of Veterans Services (DVS) and the Virginia State Bar (VSB) are holding a pro bono veterans legal services clinic on November 17th at the Petersburg Freedom Support Center, located at 32 West Washington Street.

Volunteer attorneys will serve low-income veterans by drafting important estate planning documents like wills, powers of attorney and advance medical directives.

Representatives from DVS will also answer questions regarding state and federal benefits that may be available to Virginia veterans including health benefits, disability benefits, financial services, education benefits, burial in a Virginia or United States’ veterans cemetery, and more.

Qualified veterans can sign up on Attorney General Herring’s website, at their local DVS Benefits Services Field Office, or by completing and mailing an application to the Attorney General’s office.
