I am an attorney accredited to represent veterans before the V.A. I also supervise a monthly free legal clinic for homeless veterans at the V.A. facilities in West Los Angeles. For the past six months, LAFLA's staff atty that specializes in veterans' benefits issues has provided critical support at this monthly clinic. During this period, the number of vets who appear at the clinic with benefits issues has more than tripled -- this is entiely due to the expert counselling provided by LAFLA's staff attorney. At every clinic, veterans now inform me that their primary motivation for coming to the clinic is to obtain benefits counselling and, if necessary, representation. We are then able to address other legal issues that impede the ability of these veterans to stand up on their own two feet. LAFLA contribution to my monthly clinic is invaluable. LAFLA justly deserves your support.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

I work on a regular basis with the staff and volunteers of LAFLA's Homeless Veterans' Project. They are truly dedicated and passionate about assisting veterans with their benefits and legal issues. This is a very deserving group of advocates.
