For veterans, access to a lawyer can change everything. At NYLAG, we understand the unique challenges reentry into civilian life presents, and the legal issues that can stand in the way of a veteran’s health, security, and happiness.

Last year, NYLAG handled 2,466 cases for veterans. Here are a few:

  • We met Lorna, a survivor of military sexual trauma, at NYLAG’s  women’s veterans clinic and helped her to leave an abusive relationship
  • We secured home health care services for Harold, a WWII veteran, so that he could live his final years in the comfort of his home and community

After Anibal lost his VA benefits following a suicide attempt, we fought to reinstate his earned benefits that allowed him to access the care he needs (hear Anibel tell his story here)

This November, thank a Veteran in your life by giving the gift of access to a lawyer to a veteran in need. 

How it works:
1. Enter your contact information & make your gift
2. Identify a veteran for whom you’d like to make a tribute gift -or- make a general donation in honor of all of NYLAG’s veteran clients
3. The designated individual receives a note that you have a made a gift in their honor and information on how this gift supports veterans in need
