Need help with appealing your VA Benefits Claim to the Court or help with a Discharge Upgrade?

The Veterans Consortium believes that our Veterans deserve the benefits and compensation they were promised, and the best legal services free of charge to meet their challenges and needs. These services are provided worldwide and are 100% free to veterans. 

The Veterans Consortium Pro Bono Program (Pro Bono Program) provides assistance to unrepresented veterans or their family members who have filed appeals at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims by uniting them with volunteer attorneys. The Veterans Consortium volunteers can also provide legal help on certain discharge upgrade cases. Veterans and family members who request Pro Bono Program assistance receive a thorough review of his or her appeal. A veteran or family member whose case is not accepted by the Program receives legal information about his or her case and an explanation as to why the Pro Bono Program cannot place the appeal with a volunteer attorney. 

Follow the links below to find out if they can help you with:

  • An appeal of your VA benefits denial.  NOTE:  The free Veteran Consortium Pro Bono Program lawyers can help you only after you have been denied by the Board of Veterans Appeals (BVA). This is an advanced level of appeal. But if you follow this link, we can also suggest other help you can get at the lower appeal stages. 
  • Discharge Upgrade. Legal help if you received a less than Honorable Discharge and need an upgrade. Again, the Consortium can help with only certain kinds of cases. But go here to find out what help you may be able to get.
