Stepping Up to Assist Veterans with the BBA
Edwards Wildman Palmer, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, Nixon Peabody, and Nutter McClennen & Fish have volunteered to accept referrals from active duty military members, veterans, and their families through the BBA Military & Veterans Legal Help Line. The commitment of these four BBA Sponsor Firms is especially important as the clients that they are helping do not qualify for traditional free legal services, but cannot afford the fees of a lawyer. We are proud of this partnership that will help expand assistance to those who have served our nation. We asked these firms why they are participating:
 
Edwards Wildman Palmer

"Community service is one of the cornerstone values at Edwards Wildman, and supporting veteran-related programs lies very close to our heart. We believe in finding practical ways of helping former military members, whether through legal representation, charitable donations, or internships to assist in the transition to the civilian workforce. All the great men and women who have served our country deserve the very best legal counsel, and our attorneys and staff are proud to volunteer for this worthy cause."

 
Nixon Peabody

"Our Boston attorneys are proud to participate in the BBA’s Military Helpline, as part of our firm-wide Veterans’ Signature Project, to which we’ve donated 2,500 pro bono hours in the past two years, assisting numerous veterans and veterans organizations. We feel it is important to give back to the men and women who so bravely risk their lives to protect our country, and often come back to face a myriad of legal issues."

 
 
Morgan, Lewis & Bockius

"Morgan Lewis’s award winning veterans pro bono practice is focused on assisting our nation’s veterans obtain the benefits to which they are entitled because of disabilities resulting from their military service to our country. As a firm, we believe that we have an obligation to give back to our communities and we are honored to use our legal talents and skills to help the men and women who have given so much to our country. We are thrilled to expand our outreach to veterans through this new initiative with the Boston Bar Association."

Barshak, Edward
 
Nutter McClennen & Fish

"Nutter is pleased to partner with the BBA on this important initiative. Supporting the men and women who have served our country and their families is something we believe in and to which we are deeply committed. In addition to many hours of legal representation that we have dedicated through the Veterans Consortium, the BBA’s Military Legal Help Line will allow us to serve more veterans and assist them with their unique legal issues."
