The Texas Veterans Legal Assistance Project (VLAP) is a Texas Legal Services Center statewide project to expand the availability of legal assistance to low-income Texas Veterans and their families, with a focus on outreach to the disabled Veterans who live in rural areas of the state.
There is no charge for our service, which is provided by telephone to eligible Veterans, at 1-800-622-2520, Option 2.
VLAP welcomes all civil legal questions, including those that relate to military benefits, federal and state public benefits and disability benefits.
Common legal issues we address:
- Family law
- Consumer protection
- Department of Veterans Affairs benefits
- Military discharge upgrades
To receive services, you must be a Texas resident, a Veteran (or the spouse, dependent, or surviving spouse of a Texas Veteran), and have total household income (including VA disability paymnets) at or below 125% of the federal poverty guidelines.
