The Project

Provide free legal services to veterans and their families in areas of VA disability benefits, discharge upgrades, and a limited number of other areas.

The Inspiration

Need Addressed By Project
Low-income veterans and their families often lack proper representation for legal issues such as VA disability compensation, VA pension benefits claims, and survivor disability benefits. They also face reentry issues such as homelessness and employment. This project allows for veterans to obtain proper representation in for all these legal matters.
