Michael McBride is on the cover of the Tarrant County Bar Bulletin (www.tarrantbar.org) due to his involvement with Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans (www.txltxv.org). Over the past year, the Tarrant County Chapter of Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans has provided free legal services to more than 300 veterans and the spouses of deceased veterans. These services include bankruptcy protection, consumer advocacy, family law assistance, and employment law assistance just to name few.
Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans holds a monthly clinic where any veteran or the spouse of a deceased veteran can speak with an attorney at no cost. After a financial evaluation, if the veteran or spouse meets the income eligibility criteria of the Texas Access to Justice Grant requirements, the case placement subcommittee attempts to place the veteran with an attorney at no cost to the veteran.
