Legal Guide for Cancer Patients

TYLA's Legal Guide for Cancer Patients, prepared by a committee of Texas attorneys with guidance and input from several cancer advocacy centers, is intended to be an informative resource upon which you or your loved one can rely to answer legal questions like, "Am I entitled to time off work?", "Should I have a will?" and "How do I tell my doctors that I don't want to be placed on life support if my condition is terminal?"

And Justice for All

The promise of equal access to justice is one of the basic foundations of our democracy. Texas attorneys continuously strive to make the promise of “justice for all” a reality for Texans living in poverty. Texas lawyers provide pro bono (free) legal services, support non-profit organizations that provide legal assistance to low-income Texans, and work to find new, innovative ways to increase resources for this important purpose.  Please click here to view the 2010 contest for young lawyer affiliates.
