Recently, I had the opportunity to volunteer at VLI's Military Mondays at Starbucks in Santa Ana. I was paired with a former marine facing an important legal matter. I learned about the issues in his case and counseled him on his rights and the law. After our meeting, I wanted to help him further and represented him at the initial hearing in his case. It was such a rewarding experience to be able to give back to those who have bravely fought to protect our freedom. I look forward to volunteering for VLI again in the future!

I have held two social security disability clinics at VLI where I was fortunate to meet approximately ten veterans to discuss their social security disability benefit issues. I enjoyed hearing about their past service the most. Some of these veterans became my clients and all of them are now my friends. I look forward to having more social security disability clinics at VLI in the future.
