Mpls. VA center offering free legal clinic for veterans

Later this week, veterans can get help at a free legal clinic at the Minneapolis VA Medical Center.

The clinic is open to all military veterans and attorneys and advocates with expertise in child support, family law, employment and social security will be on hand.

Nathaniel Saltz from the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans said veterans can get help with legal questions and filling out legal forms.

"By the time they leave the clinic they can have all their forms filled out that they'll need to proceed as well as all the information that they'll need to proceed," Saltz said. "It's not just advice, it's actual services that they are going to be receiving."

Saltz said the clinic is geared toward any veteran who needs legal help.

Anyone looking for more information about the Jan. 13 clinic can call the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans.
