Veterans' Legal Aid | Helping those who fought for our freedom.


Our veterans risk their lives to keep our country safe and free. 

We honor and support our veterans and their families through equal access to justice.  We coordinate access to legal services for veterans through direct referrals to attorneys and legal aid organizations; we support veteran’s legal aid programs; and we assist in the management of an OBRA Trust to benefit veterans and their families.

Supporting veterans and their families through equal access to justice.

The Veterans’ Legal Aid Society (VLAS) was founded to provide essential legal services for America’s veterans, surviving spouses, and families who need assistance in paying for out-of-pocket medical expenses. The VLAS aims to help those who fought for our freedom when they need it the most.

VLAS assists veterans and their families in applying for pension benefits from the Veterans Administration. Many veterans become disabled later in life, long after their military service has ended. VLAS specializes in pension benefits for nonservice-connected disabilities.
