As a legal aid lawyer, I work with veterans every single day.
I see them struggle to get benefits they have earned through service to their country. I see their court battles to keep their homes and livelihoods. As a veteran myself, I’m deeply saddened to see how often the scales of justice are tipped against them.
For the veterans I see, the legal problems they must address threaten basic human needs — keeping roofs over their heads, paying for groceries and other necessities, and receiving necessary medical treatment.
