Lawyers 4 Vets

In partnership with the Wm. Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center and local attorneys, SC Appleseed is proud to provide, Lawyers 4 Vets, a pro bono legal clinic for lower-income Veterans in South Carolina.

There are over 420,000 veterans living in South Carolina. Nearly 30,000 of them live below the poverty line, struggling to find jobs, and grappling with the devastating effects of poverty, hunger, and homelessness.

Lawyers 4 Vets is a pro bono legal clinic to assist those who have served our country with the legal issues that they face, eliminating one more barrier keeping them from the productive civilian life they deserve.

The clinic will connect lower-income veterans with local attorneys who will provide one-on-one pro bono legal advice or representation. We want to help you!

The Clinic:

The clinic is held on the third Thursday of each month from 9:00 am-12:00 pm at the Wm. Jennings Bryan Dorn VA Medical Center in Columbia.

Lawyers 4 Vets will assist veterans with:

  • South Carolina child support orders and modifications
  • Expungement of SC criminal records, and/or pardon applications
  • Simple will and/or healthcare power of attorney (available for veterans and their spouse)

Counties included in the service areas for outreach: Anderson, Florence Greenwood, Lexington, Orangeburg, Richland, Sumter, and York.


Low-income Veterans in the midlands areas of South Carolina can call the Lawyers 4 Vets intake line at 1-877-289-6000 to schedule an appointment.


Veterans will be screened for eligibility, and if eligible will be given an appointment at the clinic. Lawyers 4 Vets will assist eligible Veterans regardless of military discharge status.


We could use some help in getting the word out to our Veterans in South Carolina. If you live in the midlands area of SC, please download this flyer and hang it up in your community? Lawyers 4 Vets Flyer
