Who We Are

The Veterans' Assistance Project provides pro bono assistance to veterans in connection with the filing of disability benefit claims before the New York Regional Office of the Department of Veteran Affairs. Veterans who have legal assistance filling out their initial benefits claims upon discharge are more likely to receive the benefits to which they are entitled, and are less likely to need to appeal in the future.
