Provost Umphrey Supports Veterans by Volunteering at Local Free Legal Clinic

Posted on Wednesday, November 11, 2015

Provost Umphrey lawyer Chris Kirchmer got an early start on Veterans Day volunteering at a free legal clinic organized by the Jefferson County Bar Associations’ Veterans Initiative and benefiting local military veterans.

The JCBA’s award winning Veterans Initiative provides free legal services to qualifying veterans through attorney volunteers like Chris. The program hosts a number of free legal clinics throughout the year as well as bi-monthly legal seminars focusing on specific areas of law. Since its inception in 2010, the local program (coordinated by Melissa Kirchmer, Chris’ wife) has provided over 525 local veterans with fee legal advice and/or representation in areas including family law, wills and probate, consumer protection, landlord/tenant law, tax law, bankruptcy, employment law, foreclosures, and veterans’ benefits and disability claims.

Over the years, Provost Umphrey Lawyers including Chris, Jennifer Job, Ronnie Turner, and Doug Sikes have volunteered at JCBA Veterans Initiative events and/or handled pro bono cases for military veterans.
