Legal Support Resources
1. Veterans Legal Institute
Veterans Legal Institute® (VLI) provides pro bono legal assistance to homeless, at-risk, disabled and low-income current and former service members to eradicate barriers to housing, healthcare, education, and employment and foster self-sufficiency. Through their core values of outreach, compassion, quality, leadership, and empowerment, they have served over 5,000 low-income veterans to date.
2. National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP)
The NVLSP is a nonprofit organization that has worked since 1981 to ensure that the government delivers to our nation’s 22 million veterans and active-duty personnel the benefits to which they are entitled because of disabilities resulting from their military service to our country.
3. Justice for Vets
Justice for Vets provides training and technical assistance to help communities bring together local, state, and federal resources to directly serve veterans involved in the justice system due to mental health disorders, trauma, and substance use.

5. Military Pro Bono Project
The ABA Military Pro Bono Project—managed by the ABA Standing Committee on Legal Assistance for Military Personnel (LAMP)—accepts case referrals from military attorneys on behalf of junior-enlisted, active-duty military personnel facing civil legal issues, and it works to place these cases with pro bono attorneys. The Project is also the platform for Operation Stand-By, through which military attorneys may seek attorney-to-attorney guidance.
6. National Veterans Legal Services Program
NVLSP attorneys leverage their legal expertise, their advanced advocacy skills, and their extensive knowledge of the workings of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the military service departments on behalf of veterans. Since 1981, NVLSP has helped veterans obtain over five billion dollars in disability benefits that were promised to them for their service to our country.
