Rebecca Eaton presented at Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans CLE

Rebecca Eaton presented at the Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans CLE on Friday, May 8th.

Besides being a “general practice” CLE, the TCBA chapter of the Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans has attempted to put together a CLE focusing on legal topics that commonly come up in our Veterans’ clinics. I chose to present on unemployment claims because our TLTV attorneys are often confronted either with advising a Veteran at a clinic about how to handle their own unemployment claim or with representing a Veteran in an unemployment hearing for the first time. The presentation is a very general review of procedure, what to expect before and during the hearing, and resources available to help a Veteran or attorney to prepare for a hearing.
