Working Together to Help Veterans, Military Personnel, and Their Families

flagsforweb

Since former BBA President Jack Regan (WilmerHale) made supporting veterans, military personnel and their families his presidential priority in 2010, the BBA’s commitment to helping this population has been at the forefront of our public service initiatives.

In the past few months alone, the BBA increased access to legal assistance through the BBA Lawyer Referral Service’s Military Legal Help Line, developed a CLE training series on Representing Military Personnel and Veterans, and had a presence at Yellow Ribbon events.

Of course, we couldn’t do it alone. Our efforts have been aided enormously by our dedicated volunteers and key community partners. Our Active Duty, Family Members & Veterans Committee of the BBA Delivery of Legal Service Section overseas these initiatives and works with legal services organizations. The two Co-Chairs, Lynn Girton (Volunteer Lawyers Project of the Boston Bar Association) and Anna Schleelein (Shelter Legal Services Foundation), help ensure that veterans, military personnel and their families have access to quality legal assistance.

The BBA and Beyond the Billable would like to thank our formal community partners who help make these initiatives possible:
