Kaleo Legal also volunteers, through The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program to represent Veterans on a pro bono basis in their appeals to the Court of Appeals for Veteran Claims, after they have been denied service entitlement for medical benefits.
The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program (Pro Bono Program) was created in 1992, with a dual mission: to provide assistance to unrepresented veterans or their family members who have filed appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims (Court); and to recruit and train attorneys in the then fledgling field of veterans’ law.
