Lawyers For Warriors

Dear Veteran Advocate,

Consider for a moment having served your nation, including multiple deployments which may have included combat. You have since transitioned out of your military career and can no longer take your worries or legal questions to your JAG Officer. Now, as a civilian, you are facing a legal issue, with all of its ensuing documents and procedures, completely on your own, and unable to afford an affordable attorney. Where would you turn if you needed effective legal counsel to address a situation that was impacting your wellbeing and those whom you love?

Because of tremendous veterans’ advocates like you, more than 4,000 homeless and at-risk veterans have been empowered to remove their legal barriers since Veterans Legal Institute (VLI) humbly began as a grassroots organization four years ago. Compassionate supporters have been vital to VLI’s ability to address wide-ranging civil issues, to restore over $1.5 million dollars in veterans’ benefits, and to sustain itself as one of the very few public interest law firms in the nation dedicated entirely to current and former US servicemembers.

We ask for you to join us in championing the legal needs of those who need it most.

Please consider becoming a vital sponsor of Lawyers for Warriors. This annual event is an evening of fun, networking, wine, cigars, delectable appetizers, and surprises. For the past 4 years, Lawyers for Warriors has sold out, having a full room of over 250 Patriots who represent legal, medical, financial, military, and other professional industries. Proceeds from the evening will ensure that veterans can receive free legal services so they thrive.

This year’s Lawyers for Warriors Event will be held on September 23, 2019 at 5:30 pm at the Center Club in Costa Mesa.

This year's nominees reflect VLI’s mission to provide pro bono legal assistance to homeless, at risk, disabled and low-income veterans that eradicates barriers to housing, education, employment and healthcare and fosters self-sufficiency.
