The Project

Leah will provide civil legal assistance and community education to veterans and military families, as well as design and lead training for practitioners who serve the veteran community in South Florida. She will engage in direct representation and systemic advocacy on behalf of veterans who seek VA Disability Benefits, SSDI/SSI Benefits, Public Benefits, Discharge Upgrades, Criminal Expungements, and other matters, where appropriate.
