The Veterans Rights Project provides free legal services to vulnerable low-income former service members regardless of discharge status in Nassau and Suffolk counties.
Legal services include assistance with various issues including veteran’s benefits and appeals, discharges, upgrades, public benefits, landlord-tenant matters (tenant only), Section 8/HUD VASH issues, consumer debt issues, select social security appeals, and family law matters. The family law matter assistance provided focuses on child support and excludes divorces, custody, and visitation.
The Veterans Rights Project staff attorneys participate in community outreach such as tabling at VA Stand Downs and Job Assistance Fairs and at Veterans legal advice clinics.
All of our offices are now open to the public and accepting walk-ins.
