THIS LIST IS CURRENTLY BEING COMPILED AND WILL BE UPDATED AS SERVICES BECOME AVAILABLE.
In the United States, there currently does not exist an advocacy group or organized legal effort to assist veterans in crisis who have been neglected, abused, or abandoned by the VA health care system.
- No meaningful ability to access the courts to for protections against retaliation by the VA for filing a complaint about a care deficiency
- No ability to seek relief when the VA ignores a care need
- No ability to seek relief when the VA refuses to provide outside mental health care because the acute issue is one or both of the problems
We’re coordinating with a growing list of members of Congress to meaningfully address a veteran’s right to the legal assistance necessary to ensure the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) provides each and every veteran the attention and care they deserve, and are entitled to by law.
Until our Senators and Members of Congress get serious about holding VA managers accountable for efficient and quality care for veterans, seeking assistance (relief) from the courts is one of the few methods veterans have to get justice.
This is a list, by State, of agencies, organizations, and attorneys willing to provide pro bono (free) legal assistance to veterans improperly or illegally denied medical care by the VA in retaliation for filing a complaint against the VA.
These agencies, organizations, and attorneys offer their services as a gift for your service, and their efforts should be treated as such. They are not obligated to provide this service. Please respect their efforts accordingly.
Texas Veterans Legal Assistance Project
The Texas Veterans Legal Assistance Project is a statewide project dedicated to providing legal assistance at no charge to low-income veterans, their spouses, their dependents, and surviving spouses of deceased veterans.
We welcome most civil (non-criminal) legal questions, including those that relate to military benefits, federal/state public benefits, disability benefits, employment, and bankruptcy. We also provide consumer protection from creditors and creditor abuses such as predatory lending, deceptive trade practices, and debt collection violation.
