A Voice for Justice and Change
In the wake of World War II, the U.S. Congress enacted laws that continue to stand as a solemn promise to every citizen who steps forward to serve our country in military uniform: if you are injured or become permanently disabled due to your military service, the federal government will care for you and your family for the rest of your life. Since the beginning, the National Veterans Legal Services Program (NVLSP) has worked 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.
We serve these forgotten men and women through:
- Lawyers Serving Warriors®
- Individual Representation
- Class Actions
- Training and Mentorship
- The Consortium
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 1980, NVLSP has helped veterans obtain over five billion dollars in disability benefits that were promised to them for their service to our country.
