Help Veterans with Discharge Upgrades

Attorneys will represent veterans seeking upgrades of less-than-honorable discharge statuses. Representation will entail a legal brief, submitted to the appropriate discharge review board or military board of correction. These claims typically require a commitment of a couple of months or shorter, to review documents, perform legal research, prepare a brief, and submit the brief on behalf of the veteran client. Attorneys will be provided with supporting documents and a memorandum prepared by Veterans Legal Support Center & Clinic staff.

The Veterans Legal Support Center & Clinic provides free legal assistance when a veteran has been improperly denied benefits by the Veterans Benefits Administration.
