Legal Aid of the Bluegrass adds attorney, hotline dedicated to veterans’ legal questions

The door to legal services for veterans opened wider this year with the addition of a Veteran’s Affairs accredited attorney and dedicated phone line for legal questions at Legal Aid of the Bluegrass.

Veterans often return from active duty to stacks of problems requiring immediate attention. Legal Aid of the Bluegrass provides direction and legal services regarding civil matters and VA benefits.

Legal Aid

The veteran population is underserved in the communities of Legal Aid’s geographic area, according to information reported to the legal service agency. Potential clients now have a dedicated intake hotline available for advice and answers to their legal questions about civil matters.

The phone number is: VETERANS HOTLINE 866-516-3054

Legal Aid has an attorney designated for veteran’s services. That attorney is available for general advice and is accredited for appeals of Veterans Administration disability determinations.

Legal Aid of the Bluegrass attorneys provide a spectrum of legal knowledge to qualifying members of the community it serves. Civil matters may include issues with housing, family law, government programs and benefits, and disability income.

Three Legal Aid offices cover 33 counties in Northern Kentucky with the goal of achieving justice for all, regardless of one’s ability to hire private legal counsel.

Legal Aid of the Bluegrass works to resolve the most important problems of low income and other vulnerable people by providing high quality legal assistance through direct representation, education, advice, advocacy and coordination with other community resources.
