CLAM’s Veterans Advocacy Project attorneys are themselves currently serving or retired military and as such have the unique ability to understand the veteran in need of legal assistance. We offer assistance for veterans who request legal aid in the areas of family law including child support, child custody, and guardianships. We also advocate for veteran’s administrative benefits when those rights have been wrongfully denied and offer assistance for vet’s in municipal court. We strive to help re-establish the respect and dignity of the veterans we are serving and work to improve the circumstances of the client by offering resources for counseling and assistance in establishing stable housing.

The Start of a New Life

SFCS Veteran’s Advocacy Project attorney was able to get his outstanding traffic tickets dismissed, while his case manager assisted him with the process of renewing his license. In addition, SFCS was able to secure a pro-bono attorney to assist Mr. Carter with a small criminal charge, which was also dismissed. With his license renewed, he was able to purchase a car and is now able to visit his daughter in rural Missouri. He is grateful to have his car because another daughter living in the St. Louis area has begun having some dire medical issues. Since he now has a vehicle he is able to assist her with these and transport her to doctors appointments. Today, he is working on the skills he needs to get a promotion, and is enjoying being able to transport himself where he needs to go!
