Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans, Lone Star Legal Aid

LSLA honors Texas veterans and service members by prioritizing their unique civil legal needs through our initiative, "Lone Star Lawyers for Lone Star Veterans". We engage LSLA staff, community partners and pro bono attorneys to provide free legal services, advocacy and education to veterans and service members. LSLA is the fourth largest legal service organization in United States; we provide free civil legal services to low income individuals and families who have immediate civil legal needs but cannot afford an attorney. LSLA offers a broad range of free civil legal services to qualifying individuals, including aiding survivors of domestic violence, child advocacy, education and civil rights, public benefits, health care access, consumer issues, home ownership, tenants' rights, employment, estate planning, probate matters and disaster relief. LSLA serves one-third of Texas, our service area spans 76 counties throughout Texas and Arkansas and includes Fort Hood, Houston and Waco, regions which have high concentrations of veterans and military families.
