NYLAG publishes NYC Veteran’s Legal Guide

New York City is home to more than 225,000 veterans, many of whom face legal challenges. The New York City Veteran’s Legal Guide provides information about the most common legal problems facing veterans living in New York City. The guide is intended for use by both veterans and their advocates, and contains information that is specific to the New York State and New York City legal systems.

The New York City Veteran’s Legal Guide was prepared on behalf of the LegalHealth Division of the New York Legal Assistance Group by Samantha Kubek. We thank Greenberg Traurig, LLP for publishing and printing copies of this guide and for their steadfast support of veterans and organizations that advocate for veterans.
