V.A.L.O.R. Program

SC Valor Logo

The SC-VALOR program coordinates existing legal resources for the military and veterans. We find, support and fill-in where gaps exist, as well as minimize duplicate efforts. The program will consist of free legal clinics held around the state, and a referral line to connect veterans and members of the military with lawyers who will provide free or heavily-discounted legal help for problems too complex to be handled at the clinics. The legal clinics will be able to handle simple legal issues like writing wills and power of attorney documents. But the most common legal issues the SC-VALOR program will handle will be Service Member Civil Relief Act issues. Those can be landlord/tenant or employment issues that come up when a service member is deployed, or a service member who’s not receiving lower interest rates that are required by law when deployed.

This program is a collaboration between the Attorney General’s Office, the South Carolina Bar and the SC Military Department.

About SC Pro Bono Program:

Many South Carolina lawyers offer their services for free (pro bono) to clients who cannot afford to pay for help with civil legal matters. You must meet federally established poverty guidelines to qualify. The Pro Bono Program is rarely able to accommodate emergency requests for a lawyer. Lawyers across our great state volunteer their time and services to provide legal aid to those who otherwise might not have the financial means to obtain it.
