METRO—Veterans with legal concerns had questions answered on Tuesday at the VA.

Attorneys with 'Fredrikson & Byron' law firm and "the Minnesota Assistance counsel for Veterans" hosted their annual day-long legal advice clinic.

The services were free for low-income veterans.

Some of the topics discussed included housing, wills, benefits, and child support.

"They've typically never have done this before, because they may perceive it to be too expensive. So we feel we're providing a service they may not otherwise have," said Bill Guy, Attorney.

This is the 5th year of the event.
