Volunteer work within the community is an important part of what we do at J. Michael McBride, P.C.. Michael McBride regularly volunteers at the Union Gospel Mission and is very involved in his church. He also provides pro bono (without charge) work for clients in the community. For example, the firm represented Cook Children’s Medical Center, assisting the hospital Chaplain in obtaining a license to allow her to publish and distribute a book she wrote, The Legend of the Prayer Bear, to patients and their families. Our attorneys negotiated and drafted the non-exclusive license agreement by which the hospital could use the previously trademarked name.
Service to our country’s veterans is another focus of the firm’s volunteer efforts. Within the legal community, Mr. McBride is heavily involved in the Tarrant County Bar Association’s Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans (TLTV) program. The purpose of Texas Lawyers for Texas Veterans is to provide pro bono legal advice to the brave veterans and their families who cannot afford legal services. TLTV hosts monthly legal clinics where veterans and their families can consult with attorneys from numerous disciplines. If you are a veteran who would like to attend a clinic or a lawyer wishing to get involved, you can get more information here. We also regularly accept case files from veterans at no cost to the vet.
