The Veterans Legal Clinic was instrumental in helping me through my transition into civilian life and the VA disability claim process. It was such a relief knowing that my future was in capable hands.
Wow. Feeling very grateful for restoring hope in veterans like me. Almost two decades – feeling distraught, alone and unworthy of assistance – and now arriving at such an incredible outcome leaves me speechless.
