The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program

What We Do

In 1991, the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims had a large pro se caseload and asked Congress to reallocate part of its own budget into efforts to secure representation for needy claimants. As a result of subsequent legislation, a consortium of four organizations (The American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, National Veterans Legal Services Program, and Paralyzed Veterans of America) receive a grant to operate the Pro Bono Program.

The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program (TVC) is the leading national 501(c)(3) charity providing free legal services in federal venues for veterans in need.

TVC operates a global federal Veterans Pro Bono Program on behalf of  the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims to represent veterans unjustly denied benefits or compensation earned from military service.

Our TVC National Volunteer Corpsâ„  attorneys also litigate cases that are appealed  to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit and the U.S. Supreme Court. Our TVC Discharge Upgrade Programâ„  represents Veterans before  military Discharge Review Boards and Boards of Correction for Military Records.
