TLTV – Tarrant County
Free legal advice and assistance for U.S. veterans and spouses of deceased veterans with legal issues in Tarrant County. Clinics are every third Friday of the month (except December). Clinics are held in locations all around Tarrant County and remotely with phone consultations.
Any veteran or spouse of a deceased veteran can receive free legal advice, without regard to financial eligibility. After financial evaluation and qualifications, an applicant’s legal matter requiring representation will be presented to the placement subcommittee to be placed with a pro bono attorney. TLTV does not have staff attorneys that take cases. All cases are referred to volunteers, therefore TLTV cannot guarantee that all eligible cases will be placed with an attorney for further representation.
TLTV cannot take cases that have close deadlines or are considered emergencies. It can take up to 4 to 5 weeks to place a case with a pro bono attorney. Areas of law for further representation may include:
- Family Law
- Wills, estate planning, and probate
- Housing and landlord/tenant
- Veteran’s benefits
- Driver’s License Reinstatement
**Financial guidelines apply for free (pro bono) representation on a legal matter referred outside the clinics. Attorneys volunteer their time and services to make an evaluation and decision on whether to represent an applicant in their particular case, and the Tarrant County Bar Association makes no guarantee that an attorney will agree to take any particular case. The number of volunteer attorneys taking a pro bono case is limited, and the cases will be evaluated by the placement subcommittee before being placed.
