D.C. firm offers pro bono help for disability claims
Dear Sgt. Shaft:
I was hoping that you would help us get out the word about the keen interest our law firm has in providing assistance to veterans by donating hundreds of hours to pro bono projects.
Womble Carlyle Sandridge & Rice PLLC, recently announced its Washington, D.C., pro bono project “When Duty Calls.” Womble Carlyle will host the program in an effort to provide military veterans with pro bono legal assistance in the initial stages of disability claims filed with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
The Greater Washington area serves more than 400,000 veterans, many of whom have suffered combat-related injuries or other service-connected disabilities, and are in need of legal assistance in submitting veteran disability claims. Womble Carlyle developed When Duty Calls for the purpose of beginning to meet this need by providing a Washington area resource dedicated exclusively to assisting veterans who wish to file or refile initial disability claims.
When Duty Calls will recruit licensed Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia, Delaware and Maryland attorneys (and supervised paraprofessionals, legal support staff and law students) to provide legal assistance to veterans on a pro bono basis, train those volunteers on the detailed process of preparing and submitting veteran disability claims, and conduct clinics to assist veterans in preparing their disability claims.
Veterans who seek legal assistance with a disability claim may contact Kaira Stelly at email@example.com or 202/467-6900.
Glad to help spread the word concerning the help your firm is providing to our nation’s veterans.
Dear Sgt. Shaft:
Thanks for all you do to help our veterans.
