 Kevin Ross-Andino and Kimberly SanchezCOMMUNITY LEGAL SERVICES OF MID-FLORIDA, the primary provider of free legal aid for low- to moderate-income residents in Central Florida, recently hosted its inaugural Veteran’s Legal Fundraiser. There was art, music, food, drinks, and a silent auction to raise money for veterans in need. Many veterans turn to Community Legal Services where trained attorneys represent them before the Department of Veterans Affairs. The attorneys have been able to help cut through the red tape so that veterans can get the benefits they earned through their military service. éClat Law partnered with CLSMF for the event.
