With great thanks to the Maine Volunteers Lawyer Project, PPL is pleased to announce a new series of legal aid clinics to help veterans access benefits will be held on the first Thursday of every month, from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM. The clinics will take place at the Portland Public Library (5 Monument Square, Lower Level Meeting Room #4).
