The Project

Assist low income Veterans and their immediate family with various civil legal issues.

The Inspiration

Need Addressed By Project
The project addresses the needs of Veterans who are unable to afford legal assistance. It also opens the door for them to determine if the issues they are having are due to a legal conflict. The various points of outreach and immediate availability encourage not only direct confrontation of problems but also self-help avenues.
The Right Person For This Project
Tiffani is the right person for the project because:
• Her husband is a disabled Veteran with wartime service who served for 22 years
• Her service for this project comes from her heart and passion for Veterans
• The project engages her mind fostering the development of legal skills that she wouldn't get anywhere else as a new attorney
