The Project

Lisette C. DeLeon is ready to help Veterans in Jacksonville, Florida. Her focus will be on assisting Veterans with their legal needs and bringing them the peace of mind they deserve.

There is a growing need in North Florida for legal assistance to Veterans. With 2 Navy military bases in Jacksonville alone, many Veterans are making North Florida their permanent home. Many Veterans are in need of assistance in VA Benefits, Social Security/ Disability Benefits, Unemployment Benefits, Child Support, Time-Sharing, Landlord/Tenant Evictions, and Debt Collections. Lisette, along with the staff at Three Rivers Legal Services, and law student volunteers, will be able to reach Veterans with these legal issues and provide them with efficient and effective legal services.

Fellowship Highlights

During Lisette’s Fellowship, Lisette:

  • Provided professional and exemplary legal services to as many Veterans in North Florida as possible.
  • Partnered with as many community organizations as possible to raise awareness of free legal services to low-income Veterans residing in North Florida.
  • Created a diverse practice of law focused entirely on Veterans’ needs.
