The office of Attorney General Bob Ferguson will offer a free legal clinic on Saturday for military service members and veterans in the Spokane area.

The first of its kind, the clinic will provide help to service members with tasks like completing a will or reinstating their driver’s licenses.

“Our military and veteran families deserve our appreciation and support, which is why we are helping them meet their legal needs,” Ferguson said in a statement Wednesday.

“We chose Spokane as the site of the first clinic because it has a significant military and veteran population. We look forward to doing many more of these free legal clinics around the state for service members, veterans, and their families. As someone who comes from a family of veterans, I am committed to standing up for individuals who have served our country.”

According to Attorney General Ferguson’s Office of Military and Veteran Legal Assistance (OMVLA), the clinic will collaborate with volunteer attorneys to operate from noon to 3:30 p.m., at the Spokane County Regional Veteran Services Center.

In order to qualify for the clinic, all service members and veterans must live or be stationed in Washington and meet the financial eligibility requirements. Find out more HERE.
