VETERANS LEGAL INSTITUTE

Founded by two California lawyers with military experience, the Veterans Legal Institute® (VLI) is among the only non-profit public interest law firms in the nation dedicated exclusively to the legal needs of current and former military members.

Centrally located at the intersection of the 5 and 22 freeways in Santa Ana, California, VLI is a combined public interest law firm and think tank which exists to fulfill two critical objectives.

LEGAL SERVICES

As veterans or current military members, VLI’s clients have demonstrated bravery and dedication to the country, protecting it both at home and abroad. Many of our clients have served in combat, enduring significant physical, emotional, and psychological wounds in the process. All of VLI’s clients have been members of the United States Armed Forces, giving of themselves so that our nation can remain safe and strong.

Many current and former service members face true challenges transitioning into their civilian lives after their military service is over. A large portion of the challenges veterans face are legal in nature, from battling with the VA over compensation and pension claims to discharge upgrades to expungements of criminal convictions preventing them from gainful employment. To honor their service, VLI provides free legal services to low income veterans and military members in a number of critical areas which often result in real improvements in their lives. VLI is able to leverage its legal network who donate their services pro bono thereby providing exponential service hours to its clientele.
