New Vets Pro Bono Website Recognized by LawSitesBlog.com
March 10, 2017 — In his article "New Site Helps Vets Appeal Benefits Decisions," Find Pro Bono Legal Help", LawSites blog author Robert Ambrogi describes the features of the new Vets Pro Bono website:
"The focus of the site is on helping veterans appeal adverse decisions from the Board of Veterans’ Appeals to the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims. The site provides an array of informational materials and explanatory videos about the appeals process. It also provides a resource library with materials about veterans’ benefits, veterans’ agencies, and physical and psychological disorders pertinent to veterans.
"For veterans seeking to appeal a denial of benefits, the site offers two options. Either they can use the site to help them fill out the forms necessary to appeal the decision or they can use the site to apply for free legal help if they meet financial eligibility requirements.
"The site also provides information for attorneys who wish to volunteer their services. Volunteer attorneys are provided free training and materials and those who take on a case are also assigned a mentor."
