Our evening program will recognize our Pro Bono Mission Partners and supporters, while highlighting plans for future growth of our pro bone services to the veteran community, including our capability and capacity to address cases involving PTSD and traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
The awards portion of the program will be followed by a stimulating "fireside chat" moderated by Ms.Woodruff. Panelists will be respected national leaders with backgrounds in mental health treatment, the federal legislative branch, legal aid, and pro bone representation of veterans and their loved ones. Come hear how their work, in collaboration with TVC, is making a difference in the lives of our Nation's defenders by helping them obtain the care, benefits and compensation they have earned and deserve.
Attendees will include members of our TVC National Volunteer Corps8M from top law firms and corporate legal departments; Federal, State and Local community partners; the veterans we serve; and supporters and benefactors.
