Enrolled Veterans of the New Mexico VA Health Care System (NMVAHCS) with legal questions on civil matters will have an opportunity to receive free consultation with licensed New Mexico attorneys and other legal professionals. 

The clinic offers free legal advice about topics such as consumer rights, bankruptcy, landlord tenant issues, foreclosure, and employment. Veterans may also bring their questions regarding family law; including divorce, child support, custody and visitation. The clinic does not handle wills or estate planning.

Veterans are encouraged to bring with them any documents relating to their legal issues. This clinic is the result of a collaborative effort by NMVAHCS and the State Bar of New Mexico Young Lawyers Division, as well as other legal service providers and community providers from around the state.

The clinics are offered the second Tuesday of each month, except for federal holidays. (See the New Mexico Legal Events calendar)
