Step Six: Choosing The Pro Bono Program

Step Six: Choosing The Pro Bono Program

If you have appealed to the Court, you’ve probably been inundated with solicitations from lawyers. But how do you know which lawyer is right for you? Do they have experience in veterans’ law? Will they turn down your case for being too small – or too big? Will they stick with you through the appeals process?


If you would like to appeal to the Court you can contact The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program for assistance. They may be able to provide you with a free lawyer to help.

Why choose the Pro Bono Program?

  • Dedicated: The Pro Bono Program has matched more than 3,600 veterans with lawyers to assist them with their appeals. They have recruited and trained almost 4,000 volunteer lawyers.
  • Experienced: The Pro Bono Program lawyers are trained in veterans’ law. In many cases, they have previously handled cases at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims.
  • Enthusiastic: The Pro Bono Program lawyers volunteer their time away from their own practices to work on your cases. They are not paid for their volunteer work and have a passion and excitement to assist with veterans’ cases.
