Veterans Legal Clinic, congressman and Georgia Legal Service team up to assist vet

Tuesday, March 3, 2020

The Veterans Legal Clinic has successfully helped a veteran and his extended family avoid a winter eviction. The veteran rented a mobile home in August 2018 but soon had problems with the septic system. After numerous requests by the veteran for help, the landlord retaliated with a threat of eviction. Facing a short deadline, the veteran contacted Congressman Jodi Hice’s office, which in turn asked the clinic for help. The Veterans Legal Clinic connected the veteran with experienced landlord-tenant attorney and 2014 School of Law graduate Charles M. McCranie at Georgia Legal Services in Athens. This three-way collaboration helped the veteran find the time and the means to arrange stable, long-term housing, without the need for eviction.
