The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program

VIPs: Volunteers Inspiring Pro Bono

Each month, The Veterans Consortium recognizes a “VIP” – Volunteer Inspiring Pro Bono. TVC values all our volunteers and wish to recognize those who inspire others.

During this time of uncertainty, it can be difficult to remain positive. But there are indeed silver linings in difficult situations, and the American way is to step up and help.

We are fortunate to have an esprit de corps within the ranks of our TVC National Volunteer Corps – a positive energy, that is not only helping us meet the growing demand for quality pro bono representation for our clients, but these stand out volunteers are asking for, and taking on, roles that we’ve not asked of them in the past.

Our May VIPs are our long-time mission partners Centonzio Law, Foley & Lardner LLP, Mark Matthews Law, McCarter & English LLP, Law Office of Michael J. Sepanik, and Quarles & Brady LLP.

Each one of these firms and attorneys have reached out to our team looking for ways they can continue to support us and the veterans, families, caregivers and survivors that we serve. They’ve stepped up and asked what they can do to help at this time. In addition to direct representation, they are assisting with screening cases, finding issues, spotting and crafting arguments, writing briefs, and reviewing records.

We want to take this opportunity to recognize each of them for their service and their call to duty. We are very grateful for their highly professional contributions that will certainly have a positive impact on the outcome of our cases.

“As most of my work is on the client side of things, I often get to hear the positive feedback about our highly talented and dedicated Volunteer Corps. However, during this national pandemic, their efforts of devotion and personal commitment to TVC’s mission have gone above and beyond, and it has been amazing to interact with them. I know I can speak for everyone on our staff when I say that we are proud to call them partners and colleagues. Thank you so much for your willingness to jump in and help. We are truly grateful."
