The Hispanic National Bar Association (HNBA) is launching the ‘HNBA Veterans Legal Initiative Program’ that will provide pro bono assistance to military veterans and families who are unable to afford these legal services.

By partnering with local veteran services organizations, the HBNA legal clinics ensure that veterans have access to legal information and legal representation. Volunteers will meet individually with veterans and their families to guide them through their legal needs, eligibility requirements for federal veterans benefits and help them complete the necessary applications.

HNBA is offering a lot of opportunities for qualified attorneys to volunteer, they may also start their own legal clinic.  For more information on this important initiative call HNBA at (202) 223-4777.
