The Ohio Military/Veterans Legal Assistance Project helps lower income veterans who have served our country by putting them in touch with attorneys who give their time to take the veterans’ cases pro bono. If veterans find themselves with a legal issue, many times relating to landlord/tenant evictions, credit card debt and other consumer issues, or employment challenges, this program can help. This amazing program has expanded from Columbus to Cincinnati and is now able to serve the thousands of local Cincinnati veterans.
There has also been a second program started called Legal Salute Ohio which pairs active service members (who do not qualify as low income) with attorneys who have committed to help at a large discount from the typical legal fees they charge. Veterans, Active Service Members, and Attorneys can join and learn more about these programs by visiting www.mvlap.org.
