This month, the State Bar of Arizona launches a collaboration with an organization committed to making legal service more available to former military personnel. Here is news about how you can participate and lend a hand.
Since 9/11, many of those deployed have been National Guard or Reserve component servicemembers. They leave behind jobs, families, friends and civilian life to face the stress of combat, long deployments, and painful reintroductions to everyday life.
Coming home can mean facing difficult changes, reemployment and financial challenges, stressful family conditions, and in many cases legal issues that developed while on deployment. Help them face their legal battles at home.
Here are some of the ways you can help:
- Represent – Provide pro bono or reduced-rate legal representation
- Advise – Listen and offer direction and advice on legal issues
- Mentor – Assist another attorney or supervise a law student in a legal clinic
- Educate – Present a workshop at a Yellow Ribbon, Drill Weekend, or other event
Please help make military legal assistance available throughout the state.
