Clients Lawyers Serving Warriors

This program provides enhanced benefits to veterans who were medically separated from all branches of service between 9/11/2001 and 12/31/2009. She conducts a client interview and reviews Veterans Administration records to determine the disabilities that qualify as “combat-related” under 10 U.S.C. 1413a, and drafts an application and supporting legal memorandum on behalf of the veteran for submission to his or her branch of service.
