Opportunities to Volunteer



The NM Veterans Civil Justice Initiative Clinic, August 12, 2014


The Paralegal Division is seeking volunteers for the August N.M. Veterans Civil Justice Initiative Clinic in Albuquerque. This monthly clinic gives free legal advice to our veterans and also refers them to many helpful and much needed services. The next clinic is Tuesday August 12, 2014  from 9:00 AM to NOON at the Raymond G. Murphy Veterans Hospital. If you are a new volunteer we would ask that you arrive at 8:00 AM for some brief training and breakfast. If you have volunteered before we would ask that you arrive by 8:30 AM. Shifts are possible if you can’t stay the full four hours. The Paralegal Division is staffing the intake and runner positions. Once the veterans sign in we will meet with them for their initial intake and then get them to an attorney for a consultation. There will be other service providers on hand like Disability and Compensation, NM Legal Aid etc. The clinics thus far have assisted over 500 veterans with their legal matters.  This event is a great way to say thank you to veterans and participate in a great Division sponsored event.  Please email Linda Murphy at as soon as possible to let her know if you will be able to assist. Linda will forward you a more detailed information sheet regarding the event once you volunteer.
