Veterans Advocacy
Sidley provides pro bono assistance to disabled veterans seeking fair and timely benefits from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the Armed Forces. Our lawyers represent veterans on claims for VA service-connected disability compensation at the agency and before federal courts and assist with applications for Combat-Related Special Compensation to the military and with petitions to military corrections boards for relief, such as discharge upgrades and military retirement. We work with individual veterans seeking benefits, as well as with veterans’ advocacy groups, to pursue systemic challenges.
