If you have a VLSN story you would like to share, please send us an email or contact us today. We would love to share your story. It is an honor to serve you.
June 2016 Mick recently returned from Washington D.C. where VLSN assisted a Marine in fighting a Physical Evaluation Board evaluation that had lowered his disability rating to 10%, threatening him with losing all retirement benefits, to include medical benefits for himself and his family. Joining with his government attorney and licensed counselor, his team was able to convince the board of his medical needs as they approved a medical retirement at 40% for his TBI.
February 2016 Mick has been working with a multitude of interested veteran’s advocates to help bring about Veterans Treatment Courts (VTCs) to Nebraska. This bill, LB 915, will allow Douglas County (Omaha) to create a three year pilot program for Veterans Treatment Courts here in Nebraska. These programs have shown success around the nation in reducing recidivism, taking accountability for actions, and healing for the veterans who are in legal need. This is huge step forward for veterans in our state and we hope everyone will take the time to become more knowledgeable on the subject and the proposal as well. VLSN is entering its third month of working with veterans who are housed in the Veterans Module in the Douglas County Corrections facility in Omaha. We are one part of a dedicated group of service providers that know that these incarcerated veterans have more that they can do for themselves and their country. Please watch for more here and on our Facebook page as we continue our mission to provide legal support to address the unmet legal needs of veterans and their family members who have supported this great nation.
