The Veterans Law Unit represents veterans and their family members when they cannot afford an attorney in cases involving VA benefits, Massachusetts Veterans’ Services Benefits, discharge upgrades and estate planning matters. The group strives to help veterans and their families attain the maximum degree of stability and financial well-being. They also provide legal education trainings to community groups and service providers on topics relevant to veterans. The Veterans Law Unit is the primary vehicle through which LSC serves the legal needs of veterans; however, it is not the only way LSC helps veterans who have unmet legal needs. Four other LSC projects focus either exclusively or substantially on representing veterans.
