The Project

Sheila provided free legal services for active duty, reserve component, or veteran military personnel and their widow/spouses in the form of pro bono consumer and selected veterans administrative law services. Veterans who are indigent, disabled, or elderly are often unable to secure legal representation, leading many of them to lose important rights and benefits. This project provides free legal services to veterans in the areas of family law, consumer and dept issues, unemployment, discharge upgrades, and benefits appeals.
