With the generous assistance of Jack Welz and his staff at the Lawrence County Veterans Service Office and the full support of the Lawrence County Commissioners, Southeastern Ohio Legal Services (SEOLS) is pleased to announce a new Veterans Legal Clinic in Lawrence County, Ohio. This legal clinic is the first of its kind in Lawrence County. The next clinic will be held on December 7, 2016 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the County Commissioners’ Chambers, which is located on the 3rd floor of the Lawrence County Courthouse in Ironton, Ohio. SEOLS will hold the clinic monthly at that location.
The new clinic is unique in that it will be available only to military veterans from Lawrence County. In addition to domestic relations and juvenile court matters, veterans will also be able to obtain brief legal advice, information and possibly direct representation in many other civil legal matters, including landlord-tenant issues, consumer/debt collection issues, record sealing, small claims and some veterans benefits cases. The clinic will be staffed by a SEOLS attorney.
